Say what you will about Richard Simmons, but he’s helped a lot of people get healthy and stay healthy. That said, he probably isn’t the best choice as the host of an early morning talk show – people generally like to be eased into their day by perky but inoffensive people like Jane Pauley and Diane Sawyer, not madcap fitness enthusiasts in striped shorts. The Richard Simmons Show aired in syndication from 1980-1984, and was comprised mostly of cooking segments and healthy living tips.
