Here are responses to the Aug. 19 question: How do you rate daytime's talk shows?

I watch "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" every day. I occasionally see "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Clair Altmann, Irvine

Phil Donahue is caring, warm and well-spoken. He is fair to all parties when dealing with serious topics and also very attractive.

Oprah Winfrey does a good job with the interviews.

Joan Rivers doesn't speak well and laughs too often at her own jokes.

Karen Louise Kent, Burbank

We don't like Bryant "Grumble" and can't stand Deborah Norville of NBC's "Today." Poor chemistry.

Majorie Seitz, Loma Linda
