    I think so too.

    There is talk about whether someone should replace him, and who it
    should be. I think that kind of program has outlived its purpose and
    that no one should try to continue in his place. It's had a good run,
    but all things must come to an end. It's just another ersatz news/ersatz
    entertainment reporting program the like of which sit like blocked-up
    cars in the front yard of every "news channel." Time to get rid of it.

    I watch sometimes, depending on who is on. I remember listening to his
    show on KMOX in St. Louis when I was a kid. On a clear night in the
    70's you could pick up KMOX all over the eastern half of the country.

    Me either, if I happen to accidentally stumble into it for some reason
    it is followed by a quick press of the remote to escape. You couldn't
    pay me to watch his show.

    I unfortunately have managed to see him quite a few times over the
    years. I've always been puzzled why he seems to be regarded as some
    kind of legendary interviewer... or something. I always thought his
    interviews were rather insipid and pointless, really.

    I think perhaps he's highly regarded because so many celebrities would not
    give interviews to anybody else. And the reason they would insist on King
    doing the interview is that he would allow them to say whatever they wanted
    to say; he didn't ask them questions which would make them look bad. IOW he
    would steer the interview toward whatever message the celebrity wanted to
    impart to the public (and what more could you want from an interview?).

    That's about right. King is even worse than Charlie Rose. Good
    riddance.

    You're probably right Bob. That may be why I didn't like him. I
    don't care about celebrity messages.

    ==
    The Larry King show was a "masquerade"...an entertainment show. No
    boat rocking if at all possible and just enough showmanship and subtle
    humor to bring people back. The hair, glasses, demeanor and especially
    the suspenders were uniquely Larry King and will unlikely be used
    again by a successor.

    That could either be a good thing - or a bad thing - depending on the
    celebrity concerned. I'd wager it's more the latter most times.

    I'll miss him. His show has far more interest, depth and appeal than
    Joy Behar and her fluff. Sure, he's had some duds, but Joy's show
    borders on the tabloid world. I guess she has to take what she can
    get. She can't seem to keep her panelists from all yakking at once.

    I wish him many years of health.

    I had no idea who Joy Behar was until I found a picture of her. I've
    seen her face before. Is/was she on The View?

    Yes she is on the View. Her show is your basic gossip hour. It can
    be entertaining, depending on who her guests are.

    yes.

    i think she's actually pretty funny. at the very least she doesn't look
    like she's been dead for several years, as king does.

    Facelifts after a certain age are not flattering. I don't think
    Raquel Welsh looks very good either.

    Racquel looks pretty much like she always did, to me. You can bet she
    paid dearly for those lifts. At least she didn't turn out looking
    like a freak such Mickey O'Rourke, Kenny Rogers, or even Dolly
    Parton. The more facelifts Dolly has the wider that mouth gets.
    She's beginning to have a mouth that looks like she stole it from the
    'Joker.'

    We should all look as good as she does at 70
    and Sophia Loren at nearly 76. Joy Behar is
    67 and I think she looks pretty good, too.

    I once heard that if Joan Rivers has one more facelift, she'll be sporting a
    goatee.
