Storyline

A long-running talk show with a host of the same name. This show was one of the first challengers to Phil Donahue's undisputed rule over the daytime talk world. Raphael's subjects were often more sensational, and were often aimed more at titilation, rather than information. As time went on and shock TV became more popular, Raphael's show thrived while Donahue's faded. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Sally, you are still missed!!!
10 September 2007 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

I miss Sally Jessy Raphael with her glasses and her mannerisms. She came before Oprah Winfrey's success in 1986. I liked her and the show because she dealt with difficult teens and issues like Satanism, homosexuality, transgender, cannibalism, cults, etc. I was really upset that they canceled her show because she was one of the most genuine talk show hosts around who really cared about her guests and audiences. She always wore those red eyeglasses and showed genuine emotion. During the 1990s, the talk show craze included Sally who deserved a lot of praise for her performance. She wasn't Oprah nor did she try to be Phil Donahue. She was Sally and we still miss her show even five years later.
