RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Dick Cavett was often referred to as "the thinking man's talk show host," for the intelligent and sophisticated interview style he displayed on the Emmy Award-winning series "The Dick Cavett Show" (ABC, 1968-1972). Cavett's witty conversations with a wide array of guests captured viewers' attention and made his show a formidable competitor against late night Goliath "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (NBC, 1962-1992). Throughout its run, "The Dick Cavett Show" delivered some of the most memorable and controversial moments ever seen on the small screen - from Katherine Hepburn's mid-interview walkout, to multiple appearances from John Lennon and Yoko Ono, to a heated debate about the Vietnam War. While interviewing every household name from the worlds of entertainment, politics, and media, Cavett remained a distinguished and fascinated host, admirable traits that helped turn the former stand-up comedian and writer into a television legend.
