A talk show or chat show is a television programming or radio programming genre in which one person (or group of people) discusses various topics put forth by a talk show host.
Usually, guests consist of a group of people who are learned or who have great experience in relation to whatever issue is being discussed on the show for that episode. Other times, a single guest discusses their work or area of expertise with a host or co-hosts. A call-in show takes live phone calls from callers listening at home, in their cars, etc. Sometimes, guests are already seated but are often introduced and enter from backstage. Gay Byrne, Steve Allen, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Dick Cavett, Ed Sullivan, Oprah Winfrey, Kris Aquino, Ellen Degeneres, Boy Abunda, Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Graham Norton and Mosunmola Abudu have hosted notable talk shows; in many cases, the shows have made their hosts famous.
Talk Show was an American alternative/ hard rock band consisting of Dave Coutts (vocals), Dean DeLeo (guitar), Robert DeLeo (bass), and Eric Kretz (drums). The group was essentially Stone Temple Pilots with Coutts (formerly of the band Ten Inch Men) taking the place of Scott Weiland, who was working on solo material and struggling with drug addiction.
Talk Show released their self-titled (and only) album on Atlantic Records in September 1997. From this album they released the single "Hello Hello" which they also shot a music video for. Despite positive reviews and supporting tours with the Foo Fighters and Aerosmith, the album's sales were disappointing and deemed a commercial failure. With the lackluster sales after the promotional radio release of "Everybody Loves my Car" Coutts left the band and the DeLeo brothers with Kretz soon reunited with Stone Temple Pilots once again.
Talk Show is the only release by the short lived band, Talk Show, a side project by the Stone Temple Pilots instrumentalists Dean and Robert DeLeo, Eric Kretz, and singer Dave Coutts. The album was released in 1997 to generally favorable reviews, but only peaked at #131 on the Billboard 200. Deemed a commercial failure, the band split up in early 1998 and went their separate ways.
Talk Show is the third studio album by the American rock band The Go-Go's, released on the I.R.S. label in 1984. Although some critics considered it an inspired return to form after their sophomore effort Vacation, other than the No. 11 hit single " Head over Heels", the album was a relative commercial disappointment, peaking at No. 18 and selling fewer than 500,000 copies. This would be the last all-original album by the group until 2001's God Bless The Go-Go's.
Many of the songs on the album have not been performed regularly by the Go-Go's in concert since the band regrouped in the early 1990s. The group's original breakup occurred shortly after the album and tour were completed. Only "Head over Heels" has been played live on a regular basis by the band and in Belinda Carlisle's solo show. Some songs haven't been played since the 1984 Prime Time tour.
The music video for the second single " Turn to You", which peaked at No. 32 in the US Billboard Hot 100, featured a starring role for rising-star actor Rob Lowe; the song was written about baseball pitcher Bob Welch, a one-time boyfriend of Charlotte Caffey. The video director, Mary Lambert, went on to work on several other videos, including hits by Madonna, and on films, such as Pet Sematary. The music video for the album's third single, " Yes or No", was released shortly before the group's breakup was announced, possibly hurting the song's sales and chart performance (peaked at No. 84).

Talk Show is the first and only album by R&B singer Shae Jones, released on January 26, 1999 through Uptown Records.
The album featured heavy input from Jones' mentor Montell Jordan, who served as an executive producer, producer, song writer, arranger and provided background vocals for the album. The lead single, "Talk Show Shhh!" became a minor hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at 88 on the chart. The album itself, however, was not a commercial success, not selling enough copies to make it to the Billboard 200 and only found mild success on the R&B and Heatseekers charts.
