Regarding Michelle Willens' "Why Do They Do This?" (Aug. 26), which was about what motivates people to disclose their personal secrets on television talk shows:
I loved Willens' article and I'd give her three sound bites for her accuracy and thoroughness.
But there are two points that were overlooked: (1) Regardless of their motive, deep down, most people love the thrill of being seen on television; (2) producers are the driving force behind any successful talk show. In my opinion, good producers do exactly what the title calls for. They "produce."
