The Best New Daytime Talk Show

I’ve been a fan of Bonnie Hunt for a long time.  She’s one of those entertainers that you may not be able to place or to remember her name at first, but you’ve seen her in lots of movies and TV shows.  She comes from Second City in Chicago and is very funny, very smart, and extremely talented.  In searching for an alternative to the morning network shows, I discovered to my delight that she has a new syndicated talk show.  Click here to get a taste of it and to find out when it’s on in your area.  If you’re at work when it’s on, TIVO it.  Seriously, it’s that good. 

The show comes on here at 8:00 in the morning, just as I’m getting out of the shower and getting ready for work.  So every day now, I get a good laugh (or three) to start my day.  There are worse things in life.

In preparing to write this post, I came across this video of Bonnie with the late, great Tom Snyder.  She was one of his last guests during the last week of his program.  If you’re somehow not familiar with her, this will give you a good of idea of what she’s all about.  It’s in two parts (can’t find part 3, darn it!), so just click on the link that shows up at the end and you’ll get the rest of the story of her honeymoon.

And here’s Bonnie with one of her first guests, Cloris Leachman.  Be sure you’re not eating or drinking anything while you watch this.  Seriously.
