Charlie Rose is an American television interview show, with Charlie Rose as executive producer, executive editor, and host. The show is syndicated on PBS and is owned by Charlie Rose, LLC. Rose interviews thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, businesspersons, leaders, scientists, and fellow newsmakers.

The show premiered on September 30, 1991. It is presented by WNET, where it first aired as a local program.

Funding for the show is primarily provided by donations from various corporations and charitable foundations. The show has been criticized for not disclosing the list of donors even if the show is considered "public" broadcasting.[1]

In 2007, the video archive of past interviews was added to the website for free viewing. In a partnership with Google, nearly 4000 hours of video was added to Google Videos including complete hour-long episodes as they originally aired. The videos are now unavailable after Google Video shut down.[citation needed]

Show musical theme[edit]

Charlie Rose's music theme was composed for the series by David Lowe and David Shapiro in Brooklyn, NY.[2] It is not available in any format.

Guests and guest hosts[edit]

There have been thousands of guests on the show. Guests and guest hosts have included:

The Week replaced the cancelled series Need to Know, and occupies that show's former Friday time slot.[6]
