The Dick Cavett Show

Talk show that typically had several guests, but occasionally Dick Cavett would devote an entire show to a single guest. These shows helped showcase Cavett's skills as a host who could attract guests that otherwise might not do interviews, at the expense of some of the excitement that might ensue from the multiple-guest format. Cavett was receptive to rock and roll artists to a degree unusual at the time, as well as authors, politicians, and other personalities outside the entertainment field.
