The article focuses on the observations on a television talk show hosted by television host Montel Williams. "The Montel Williams Show," is shot in the West Side, New York City, in a building with no pretensions. The reception area of the building and the green rooms occupy leftover spaces and hallways and the focus of the operation is the set. The stage has a few living-room touches like upholstered chairs and side tables. The moments of intimate exposure often bring personal talk shows into the realm of exhibitionism, and bring down the wrath of the censorious on them.
