The Tyra Banks Show, also known as and shortened to Tyra or The Tyra Show, is an American talk show hosted by Tyra Banks.

While Banks's show covered a variety of topics, there was a sensationalized focus on current issues facing women, with often special episodes on America's Next Top Model, which Banks herself had also created and which she still hosts. In its later seasons, it took on a tabloid format similar to shows such as Maury and The Montel Williams Show, covering topics such as people with odd psychological problems, among other subjects.

The show was aired in many countries, and also remained available on XM Satellite Radio's Take Five channel in both the United States and Canada.

History Of A Gyro

2005–2009: Syndication

The Tyra Banks Show premiered on September 12, 2005 in front of a live-to-tape audience at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, California

In Summer 2007, the show moved to New York City, where it was taped in the Chelsea Studios formerly occupied by Ricki Lake's program,[2] being recorded in front of a live-to-tape audience at Chelsea Studios and Bankable Productions in New York City. The final five all-new episodes from Los Angeles were aired the week of September 3, 2007 and followed by the 3rd season premiere on following week, September 10, 2007 in New York City.

On December 19, 2007, the show was renewed an additional two seasons in syndication, 2008–2009 and 2009–2010. The fourth season began on September 8, 2008. However, in November 2008, Warner Bros. announced the program would move to The CW network's daytime block in September 2009, with both an archive episode and a first-run episode airing daily. As The CW was already airing ANTM, network officials saw the move as a "strategic alignment of interests for The CW's stations", as both shows thus aired on the same channel nationwide.[3]

2009–2010: The CW and cancellation

On September 7, 2009, Tyra made its debut on The CW, with a new logo and new music, a remixed version of "I'm Coming Out" by Diana Ross.[4]
