The Best Interview Shows

Updated December 30, 2020 475 votes 128 voters 23.2k views46 items

List RulesVote up the best shows that are primarily interviews - not news or general talk shows.

Although there's an overlap, the very best interview shows on television aren't always the best talk shows. Some hosts are particularly good at celebrity interviews and let that be the focus of their show, rather than the variety show aspect of many talk shows. Interview TV shows have been a huge part of television for years, such as Charlie Rose's 1950s show Person to Person, so there's often debate about what the most entertaining interview TV shows of all time are.

Don't let your favorite interview programs get to the bottom of the list - be sure to vote them up so they have the chance to reach the top spot. The list of interview television shows is ranked from best to worst thanks to your votes and includes information like the program's cast and premiere date when available.

This list includes shows like Charlie Rose and Red Table Talk and answers the questions, "What is the best interview show of all time?" and "What are the greatest interview shows?"
