Overview: The Bonnie Hunt Show will remind you a bit of Dean Martin - and that's intended. Much of the talk show's set design is attributed to Martin and his 50s sense of style.

That fits comedian, actress and talk show host Bonnie Hunt. Hunt, once voted as the best talk show guest in the world, exudes a similar sense of style and comfort. Everything about Hunt and her show are smooth, laid-back and cozy.

In terms of unique in the talk show space, that's not The Bonnie Hunt Show. Bonnie takes the standard daytime recipe - a bit of a monologue, some banter with the audience, a steady stream of celebrity guests and a lot of interactivity - and makes it her own.
