On October 23rd get ready to go live before a studio audience on National TV Talk Show Host Day!  Created to pay tribute to TV talk show hosts and appreciate their unique form of humor, entertaining stories, spontaneous wit and timely political jokes.

Talk shows come in a variety of platforms.  Daytime talk shows provide a combination of current events, health updates, technology news, and entertainment. The later the hour, the more comedy the TV talk show host dishes out. From practical jokes, impersonations, and sketches to games, sidekicks and audience participation.  Guests usually star in an upcoming film or made headlines for a stunt, good deed or unusual invention.

Each day we watch our favorite talk shows, and we laugh, cry, listen and learn. It is these great hosts that make the shows ones that we want to watch.


Watch your favorite TV talk show host and use #TVTalkShowHostDay to post on social media.


National TV Talk Show Host Day was chosen to be celebrated on The King of Late Night Television’s birthday.   John William “Johnny” Carson was born on October 23, 1925.  Carson was the host of The Tonight Show for thirty years (1962 – 1992).
