With 2013 quickly coming to a close, TV Guide Magazine named its 60 greatest talk show moments ever. That’s right – ever! Not just from one year, or even one decade – ever!
The top pick happened back in 1992 when singer Bette Midler serenaded late night icon Johnny Carson just one day before his retirement.
TV Guide’s top daytime moment (and second best moment overall) happened in 1988 on ‘the Oprah Winfrey Show.’ On that day, the magnificent Oprah greeted her audience pulling a red wagon filled with 67 pounds of fat. Oprah had dieted herself down to a size 10 and she wore the Calvin Klein jeans to prove it.
There are 58 more great moments with talk show hosts like Tyra Banks, Phil Donahue, Merv Griffin, Rosie O’Donnell, Regis Philbin, and Jay Leno.
