I like to watch talk shows like Oprah and Ellen Degeneres I learned a lot of things from them and enlighten me in such topics or discussion they started especially in Oprah But I also like to watch Game shows it is really entertaining and thrilling to watch as such. My I ask you, what about you which one do you like best?

I would definitely choose a game show over a talk show! Family Fortunes comes to mind! Game shows are so much fun and talk shows are so serious. There are exceptions though! I do like Montel and Oprah, I think they are very good at what they do and yes, you can certainly learn a lot from watching their shows. Sometimes they are so passionate and it's hard to hold your emotions in. I like things like that that are based on real life. I do prefer the gameshow bullseye too which is pretty good. Andrew

I am not too keen on game shows or talk/chat shows ,but I like a good drama or a good documentary,the chat shows seem to sink to base level and you end up with everyone fighting and you cant hear anything that anyone is sayin!we have Jeremy Kyle here in the UK and that show is dreadful,he seems to find all of the drop outs and then he pumps them until they air their dirty linen in public,he was the focus of a newspaper article the other day,the article pointed out that he was expoliting the vulnerable and his show was degrading,and I am very much inclined to agree with that.Jerry springer is hugely popular,he has such a following.but tho I dont like these shows I have to agree with you that there are many thousands who do!the shows all have very high ratings,and that speaks volumes

I like both, i guess.. If the game show proves to be educational, informative and intellectually stimulating, then I am a fan..There are game shows which bores me because basically they just dont make sense sometimes.. Talk shows, most especially those gossip shows, I like.. Maybe because I am so way behind what's been happening in the "showbiz world", that I only get to know what's up and what's hot when I watch those kinda shows.. Talk shows, like what you have mentioned and those local ones which of course must not be too boring and non stop talking without sense, I like to watch.. Basically, I like to watch shows which somehow moves me, shows that I would really learn something new and interesting and is worthy, something that would perk up my brain to think and not just to stare on the big tube..

I prefer game shows, I'm not a super fan but I can say that over the years I've watched many different games shows and you can still catch me sometimes watching one game show or another. I used to watche talk shows when I was a teen, it was a mistake really, some may be OK but.... if I could go back I think I would have spent my time doing something else.

Definitely prefer to watch talk show than game show. I'm not a sport oriented and once I tried to watched some basketball game league when I saw my father watching it, well, after a few minutes I was so bored with it. I like watching ellen and oprah too, sometimes tyra banks' talk show, particularly, if it is have a good topic. Learned new things from them and quite enjoying too to watch it.

Game show, everyday already facing words and talks from others, would not have that in TV too. Game show at least have more motion or actions, more relax and enjoy that.

Definately a talk show. I dont get into those games shows at all. To me it is kind of a waste of time.
