Coming after Oprah: Cultural Fallout in the Age of the TV Talk Show

Synopsis

"Coming After Oprah "is the first book-length study assessing a decade of talk that makes the quiz-show scandals of the 1950s look innocuous by comparison. More than just a commentary on the aesthetics of the genre, this book looks at the evolution and cultural significance of these programs, disputing claims that they are nothing more than harmless entertainment.
