The Dick Cavett Show

Dick Cavett may not have been the funniest man ever to host a late-night talk show… but he might have been the most erudite – and he may even have been the best interviewer in the genre. The Dick Cavett Show ran in late night on ABC from 1969 to 1975, and distinguished itself from Carson by booking many “non-entertainment” guests – as well as many rock musicians (who at the time were not taken very seriously).
