Best Show or Series – Talk Shows

Oprah’s Next Chapter, OWN
There’s a reason she’s deemed the Queen of Talk, and while her daily syndicated series may be over, newsmakers still clamor to bare their souls to Oprah. The list of high profile interviews on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” is impressive: Lance Armstrong’s exclusive sit-down after being stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles, a post-rehab Lindsay Lohan heart-to-heart, Cissy Houston’s first in-depth interview since daughter Whitney passed away. And through it all, Oprah asks the questions we’re dying to hear the answers to with her characteristic wisdom, compassion and healthy skepticism.
Center Stage with Michael Kay – YES Network – Kay continues to impress with his introspective questions and his well-worn respect of the game.
Chelsea Lately – E! – Six years after its debut, Chelsea Handler’s late night talker continues to be edgy and funny.
The Suze Orman Show – CNBC – Passionate and sharp, Suze Orman puts the personal in personal finance, tackling everything, including the unique financial issues of the LGBT community.
The Talking Dead – AMC – What’s better than watching zombies die? Dissecting each kill, as well as plot points with host Chris Hardwick.
Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell – FX – If you haven’t caught this show yet, do yourself a favor and watch. Bell will do more than make you laugh. He’ll make you think.
Watch What Happens Live (WWHL) – Bravo – Andy Cohen might just take over the world. Or at least Bravo. His interactive talk show is the marshmallow fluff that keeps us licking the spoon.
