Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced by Warner Bros. Television, The Tyra Banks Show was a sprightly daily, hour-long vehicle for supermodel-entrepreneur Tyra Banks -- and there were those who were astounded that the extremely busy host ever managed to find time for this project. Not simply a one-on-one chatfest (though there was plenty of time spent on the crucial issues of the day), the series was also big on audience participation, pop-culture segments, fashion and beauty hints, and musical performances. And in the tradition of Oprah Winfrey, Banks generally focused on a central theme in each episode, with the first week's worth of programs touching on an entirely different topic every day. Seen primarily on local WB and UPN network affiliates, The Tyra Banks Show premiered September 12, 2005.
