About the Show

Merv Griffin, Talk Show Host
Merv Griffin was known for his unique ability to interview different personalities. His son, Tony, remembers how his father would ask tough questions to writers, artists and senior politicians.

If the moniker of Mr. Hollywood could be applied to anyone, it would be Merv Griffin. A pioneering singer, talk show host, and media mogul, Griffin was a true iconoclast who created some of the most popular game shows of all time, including Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. And although he was also a Tinseltown personality who knew everybody in the biz, it was his business prowess in real estate that would eventually make him a billionaire.
