#'''Late Night Talk Show:''' Current events, comedy, and celebrity guests, such as ''Series/TheTonightShow'', ''Series/LateNight'', ''Series/TheLateShow'', ''Series/TheLateLateShow'', etc. Often a limited form of the VarietyShow, typically featuring a house band -- which is usually used to cut to commercial, and rarely shown in its entirety. Musical acts often perform a single song as the last segment of most shows. In the 70s, such shows as ''Dinah Shore'' and ''The Mike Douglas Show'' aired afternoons, a trend that saw a slight resurgence in the mid 90s. By the 2010's, it became increasingly common for late-night talk shows to feature games and other recurring segments with celebrity participation in an effort to make them an InstantWebHit the following morning.

#'''Daytime Talk Show:''' These shows typically feature celebrities and/or ordinary people who showcase [[PointAndLaughShow scandal or dysfunctionality]]. Examples: ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow'' (scandal), ''Live! With Kelly & Michael''[[note]]many previous names, most notably ''Live! With Regis & Kathie Lee'' and ''Live! With Regis & Kelly'' (the same Kelly)[[/note]] (celebrities), ''Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow'' (either or both). Pioneered by Phil Donahue. ''Series/DoctorPhil'' fits here, with the twist that he attempts to use psychology to help the dysfunctional people. ''[[Series/TheTalk Loose Women]]'' is a British daytime variety based on American show ''The Talk'', presented by a panel of rather opinionated professional women drawn from all areas of celebrity: journalists (Janet Street-Porter), singers (Jayne [=McDonald=], Colleen Nolan), actresses (Denise Welch) etc.
