There were chat shows on in the daytime, evening and late night in the '70s, covering everything from current affairs to pop music. Many of these hosts stuck around for decades.

Mike Douglas began his career broadcasting out of Cleveland. Hawaiian pop star Don Ho hosted an eponymous daytime show on ABC in 1976–77. Former Tonight Show host Steve Allen began hosting a show called 'Meeting of Minds' in 1977, on which he interviewed historical figures — well, actors pretended to be historical figures. Conservative intellectual William F. Buckley showed off his impressive vocabulary on the public affairs show called 'Firing Line.'
