TV Confidential Archives: Nov. 1, 2010

First hour: Donna Allen and Tony Figueroa join Ed for a discussion on the heir apparent, if any, to Oprah Winfrey; how the tone and format of The Jerry Springer Show was considerably different than how we know it to be today; and initial thoughts on The Talk and Parker/Spitzer. Also in this hour: This Week in History remembers the births of Jackie Coogan, Pat Sajak, Jack Benny, Henry Winkler and Roy Rogers.

Second hour: Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer Charles Fox joins Ed for a discussion of his collaborations with such artists as Roberta Flack, Paul Williams, Norman Gimbel, Barry Manilow, Jim Croce, Lena Horne and Fred Astaire. Charles' book, Killing Me Softly: My Life in Music, not only walks readers through his journey in music and television, but also pays tribute to the teacher who continues to influence him, the great French composer and conductor Nadia Boulanger.
