In Bed With Joan is a weekly internet talk show hosted by Joan Rivers from her bed in her daughter, Melissa's house near Malibu, California. Each week, Joan invites a different guest to talk to her in bed about different things including their past, their love life and their career. Episodes are approximately 20 minutes.

Premise[edit]

Each week, Joan invites a different celebrity to her bed to talk with her about many things including their past, their love life and their career. Each episode starts with the celebrity guest talking personally to the camera about what they expect the experience to be like before the opening credits are then rolled. Joan then starts by saying "Let's see who's coming out of the closet this week..." and then the guest emerges from the closet in the corner of the room. After casual conversation for the majority of the interview, they then focus on specific segments. These currently consist of 'I'm So Sorry' where the guest is given the opportunity to look into the camera and apologise to anyone they have offended or upset in the past. The next item is the opposite, and is called 'Sit on It and Rotate' where the celebrity insults and really gives a piece of their mind to people who have been nasty and cruel in the past. The third and final segment is called 'Dead or Alive' where Melissa comes in with flashcards with a different thing on each flashcard and the guest must choose which one to kill and which one to keep alive (often this is between two different celebrities). The guest then finishes the show by clapping the lights out.

The show is set in Joan's room in the basement of Melissa's house in Malibu, California where she spends half her time living; the other half she spends in her apartment in New York.

Guests on the show have included Kelly Osbourne, Betsy Brandt, RuPaul and Howie Mandel. In the initial preview video, Joan was seen in bed with Kato Kaelin, Bruce Vilanch and Chris Harrison.[1]
