Sadly, there aren't any anymore. My favorite talk show personality was Tom Snyder. He used to tell little anecdotes and then interview a very wide range of interesting guests on his show in the 1970's called "Tomorrow", and then in the 1990's he had a show "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder". You can find episodes on YouTube. (Mr. Snyder has a standard American midwest accent) Even though its an older program, you can learn a lot about American culture from it. Some of my favorite guests were Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Ayn Rand John Lydon and Alfred Hitchcock

What do you mean by "talk show"?

The show that gets the highest ratings today is "Dr. Phil." And while it may be considered a talk show, it isn't what was meant 20 years ago when someone used those terms. If you mean a single host, talking to people late at night - "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Kimmel" gets the highest ratings. But that is a mixture of comedy (which she said she didn't want) and interviews. The daytime interview-with-celebrities show that gets the highest ratings is "Live with Kelly and Ryan." "Ellen" has fewer watchers than any of those shows. It also has comedy.
