Chat Show

Joe Franklin, an American radio and television personality, hosted the first television talk show. The show began in 1951 on WJZ-TV (later WABC-TV) and moved to WOR-TV (later WWOR-TV) from 1962 to 1993.

NBC's The Tonight Show is the world's longest-running talk show, having debuted as The Steve Allen Show on September 27, 1954. The show underwent some minor title changes until settling on its current title in 1962.


The Late Late Show, Europe's longest-running chat show, was first broadcast by Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTÉ) in Ireland on Friday, July 6, 1962 at 23.20.


David Letterman, the longest- serving late night talk show host in TV history, gave up his U.S. chat show after 33 years in 2015.

The current world record for the longest talk show is held by Rabi Lamichhane from Nepal by who stayed on air for 62 hours from April 11 to 13, 2013.


In Japan, panel shows — called "tooku bangumi" — are very commonplace, accounting for about 30% of daytime and prime-time programming on the four main television stations.
