For me it’s Johnathan Ross. Love his humour,

I like Jonathon Ross too, but for some reason some can't stand him
Not keen on Graham Norton though

TrendyNannie6 Sun 15-Dec-19 10:42:27

No I’m not so keen on him either blondenana

I do not like them either so I never watch them. Maybe my loss but I cannot help it.

I cannot bear Jonathan Ross or Stephen Fry, yet much to my own and my children's amazement I enjoy listening to Graham Norton.

My favourite ever was Michael Parkinson. But now it's definitely Graham Norton , I think he's great.

Stephen Fry is excellent at award ceremonies but less so as a chat show host. Since Jonathan Ross' disgraceful behaviour over Andrew Sachs I'd rather not see him at all.
Michael Parkinson is top of my list.

It was Michael Parkinson and now Graham Norton. He is very good at letting the guests interact with each other which Jonathan Ross doesn't do.

Another Graham Norton fan here - he always has a great mix of guests on and they usually seem to have fun. Don’t like Jonathan Ross and not too keen on Alan Carr either.

I quite like Graham Norton, abhor Jonathan Ross, and Stephen Fry makes my skin crawl! My all time favourite was Terry Wogan.

Exactly the same for me Greyduster I also liked Angus Deayton and thought he was harshly treated for his misdemeanours.

I cannot stand Jonathan Ross and am mystified by his success. I also went right off him after he did an interview with Charlize Theron.

I used to be in love with Simon Dee.

And I loved the gentle way Kirstie Young got people talking on Desert Island Discs.

Graham Norton, he is lovely. Before that had to be Parky, he was the best!

Don't bother watching talk shows any more, but my favourite was Michael Parkinson.

Alima Mon 16-Dec-19 08:44:43

Are there any talk shows nowadays? Michael Parkinson was the king of the chat shows. Terry Wogan was very entertaining too. J Ross is awful, always about him. G Norton is better but not a patch on the oldies.

BlueBelle Mon 16-Dec-19 09:05:35

I can’t bear Jonathon Toss Ross and by far the best in my eyes is Graham Norton but have to admit I rarely watch chat shows now

DanniRae Mon 16-Dec-19 10:16:46

It's Graham Norton for me too - he is so good with the guests and has some amazing ones on his couch I think!

BBbevan Mon 16-Dec-19 10:32:14

Never watch chat shows.
