Politicking with Larry King is an apt title to this program. In it, Larry sits with celebrities and talks politics and current events (personal and national) that affect U.S. politics. The celebrities range from those in politics and those who have either written about or starred in/produced/written movies and/or plays about our government. As per normal with Larry, the set is comfortable, just as he is with his guests. He sets up the interview at the outset with where he is going to lead it and he goes straight to key questions. While he inserts his own views via the questions he asks, he is honestly curious about his guest's ideas and assumptions about current events. He is a prepared host, having read the guest's book or watched their movie and, while he may have a list of questions, he courteously listens to his guests and forms questions from their answers.

Description

Politicking with Larry King is an apt title to this program. In it, Larry sits with celebrities and talks politics and current events (personal and national) that affect U.S. politics. The celebrities range from those in politics and those who have either written about or starred in/produced/written movies and/or plays about our government.

As per normal with Larry, the set is comfortable, just as he is with his guests. He sets up the interview at the outset with where he is going to lead it and he goes straight to key questions. While he inserts his own views via the questions he asks, he is honestly curious about his guest's ideas and assumptions about current events. He is a prepared host, having read the guest's book or watched their movie and, while he may have a list of questions, he courteously listens to his guests and forms questions from their answers.

Politicking with Larry King is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (634 episodes). The series first aired on June 13, 2013.
