Charlie Rose (1991)
Charlie Rose is a talk show that airs on PBS. Charlie Rose, the host of the show, is a journalist, like his counterparts on such Sunday morning talk shows as Tim Russert or Bob Schieffer, and his show is taped in a trademark black studio with nothing but a round oak desk and robotic cameras, so only Rose and his guest or guests are in the studio during taping. The result is an intimate conversation which provides an intelligent alternative to such late night talk shows as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno or Late Show with David Letterman. Like those other late night shows, Rose often interviews actors, musicians, film makers and other TV and film personalities, but he is also much more likely to interview scientists, journalists, authors, politicians and other great minds of the day.
