For decades, talk shows were dominated by a select few who could get their own late-night slot on one of the few basic channels. Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Letterman, and a few others were the only folks you could turn to when you wanted laughs and a recap of news for the week. With the advent of streaming services, like Netflix, Hulu, and Facebook Watch, there are more talk shows than ever before. These are some of the best streaming talk shows you will find, on any channel. No matter what your taste in comedy is, there is bound to be a host out there for you.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee changed the format of a standard talk show. Instead of sitting behind a stuffy desk, guests are placed in a more laid back environment where they talk about everything from vintage cars to embarrassing stories about their careers. Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj explores the modern political and social landscape with a great deal of depth you don't normally find with a talk show. Airing new episodes only once every two months, Oprah's Book Club on Apple TV+ takes her much-loved book club segment and turns it into an easily streamable show - so you can watch whenever you do finally finish the book.
