Who was another Black female talk show hostess back in the 90's besides Oprah?

Tempest Bledsoe who played Vanessa Huxtable on the Cosby Show had her own talk show appropriately titled, "The Tempest Bledsoe Show" that aired in 1995.

Star Jones has been a co-host of, "The View" since 1997.

Queen Latifah also had her own show titled, "The Queen Latifah Show" that ran from September of 1999 to May of 2000.

I knew Star Jones and Queen Latifah but I never heard of "The Tempest Bledsoe Show". It must have been a short run or on a channel I never watch.

The Whoopi Goldberg Show      Mon Dec 11, 2006 8:39 am Reply with quote

The Whoopi Goldberg Show aired in syndycation daily from September of 1992 to September of 1993. Even though 200 episodes or so were produced, it was pretty much a disaster. It seems like, in most cases, the type of personality that makes a talk show a hit is rare in those with other major talents.

To me, Whoopi will always be Guinan, the wise and ancient bartendress on Star Trek the next generation! I can't imagine her doing well hosting a talk show, but most people wouldn't have thought she'd make a good sci-fi character either!

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the fact that Whoopi is doing a fantastic job as a co-host on "The View".
