Who doesn't love a good talk show?! From daytime programs to nightly specials, talk shows have always been one of the most popular television formats for a reason. In fact, talk shows exploded in the 1980s. Tabloid talk shows and "trash TV" became a thing. Syndication and cable meant there were far more places to set up a desk and couch. From top 1980s talk shows that revolutionized late-night television, to shows that found daytime audiences, and even primetime audiences, no matter what time slot they occupied, the greatest 80s talk shows delivered information that the public was hungry for. In 1982, Late Night with David Letterman debuted on NBC, with his first guest being Bill Murray. The Caddyshack star sat down with Letterman many times over the years and even appeared on his final episode of The Late Show, which aired on CBS, in 2015. And who could forget how Oprah revolutionized daytime chat shows, which every major network suddenly wanted to keep up with The Tonight Show on NBC. Other great series that are featured on this top 1980s talk shows list include Nightline, The 700 Club, and Good Morning America. But just how much do you really remember about these hit 80s talk shows and their hosts? Think you can identify the many hosts of 1980s talk shows? We're gathering some of them here. See if you can recognize them all by just one image. Only eagle-eyed fans will be able to get them all correct! Good luck!
