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, Inc. 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.[2]

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]

In 2010 Rose and cohost Eric Kandel began "The Brain Series", episodes featuring neuroscientists and other experts;[3] the series was later released on DVD.[4]

In October 2014, a segment called "Al Hunt on the story" was launched as a "regular feature interview"; Hunt's first interview under this banner was with Secretary of State John Kerry.[1]

The show is filmed at 731 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, New York City. This is the same building which houses Bloomberg Television, and Bloomberg L.P. which sponsors the show.[5]

Show musical theme

Charlie Rose's music theme was composed exclusively for the series by David Lowe and David Shapiro.[6]

Charlie Rose: The Week

Charlie Rose: The Week premièred on PBS on July 19, 2013. The show is a half-hour long, consisting of interviews from recent episodes of Charlie Rose, with occasional unique segments produced for the weekly broadcast. The Week replaced the cancelled series Need to Know, and occupies that show's former Friday time slot.[7]
