The Dick Cavett Show is a talk show that features well-known public figures that range from celebrities to politicians. Although The Dick Cavett Show focuses on having comedic elements, it also provides viewers with a serious tone as a daily talk show. Each hour-long episode will usually feature a few prominent people in the public eye as guests on the show. Having multiple guests gives the host, Dick Cavett, a chance to hold a panel discussion among them about current events that are going on in the United States and internationally. The guests booked for each episode typically have differing opinions that allows both sides of the argument to defend their viewpoints. Some episodes, however, only focus on a single guest throughout the show. This gives Cavett a chance to delve deep and ask as many questions as he can to get to know the guest as intimately as possible.
