These are the best 2010s talk shows, ranked from best to worst by user votes. From talk shows that were actually as politically important as any cable news channel could ever hope to be, to late night comedies that upped their games to stay relevant in culture that is increasingly jumping ship from TV to the Internet, talk shows remained just as relevant throughout the 2010s even as social media began to take over.
What are some of the series that you will find on this best 2010s talk shows list? After many years on NBC, Conan O'Brien found a new home on TBS after he was bumped as The Tonight Show host, and recently he reformatted the entire show to fit modern tastes. All the while new powerhouse hosts emerged in The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Entertainment talk shows like Extra were also popular in the 2010s, while smaller cable shows like The Jim Jefferies Show and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee provided scathing and hilarious critiques on pop culture and politics alike.
The greatest minds in politics regularly stopped by Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor during the 2010s. A few other good series on this list include Inside the Actors Studio, The Chew and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
