Class & Fairness
21 April 2003 | by BobinAtlantiCitySee all my reviews

The King of Talk was back...unfortunately, not for long. Phil's show focused on current events and featured interviews with celebrities and newsmakers. Unlike other cable news hosts, Phil didn't yell at and insult his guests. He conducted himself with class and always gave all of his guests a fair turn. In the end, Phil's nice-guy style proved unpopular in an age of increasing nastiness all over television.

As a side note, in Phil's summer-winter run, the show went from having no studio audience to having a very large one, and had two different theme songs.
