    Jennifer is a natural conversationalist. She makes her guests comfortable and draws them to reveal themselves in a manner that makes feel like they’re talking to a friend in private.  She’s was destined for greatness.  She will be the next Oprah, Ellen and Johnny all rolled in one! We❤️JH.

    I truly love Jennifer Hudson show.  I retired in July 2023 and I normally watch this show everyday that she comes in television.  I also record this show so I can watch it if I miss the show.  Jennifer puts her all and all into her guest and she lets the audience get involved too.  I hope this show makes it to the number one show of daytime.  God bless her and her friends!

      What I love about the Jennifer Hudson show is the way she interviews. She holds a safe loving space for all of her guests. Jennifer has guests on her show that aren’t overly saturated by media. She keeps it fresh. She is relatable. She is gracious. She is a risk taker. I truly appreciate how she allows us to get to know the interviewee personally before she asks questions about their projects. Together with Jennifer we get to personally engage her guests that she interviews. We get to peek into the window of conversation as a cohost with JHud and Walter…. I love how uplifting she is.
      This show is fire and forward thinking….

      I think this survey is bias. I do not watch any off these shows. What about Tamron Hall and sherri shepard talk shows.

    I am a newly retired educator of 40+ years & have watched The Jennifer Hudson Show since the start. I also tape the shows daily so as to view later. I love her interaction w/her audience and she seems genuine, compassionate and caring. She is respectful and caring w/her guests…the older- younger ones. I love how she interjects into conversation, the life lesson that her mother left w/her and all comes from a place of Love ❤️. I also love how in her 2nd season, she pay homage to the music/artist world w/songs from the past…and yes, I be dancing also!
