The Bailey family is YumTime... (17.09)

Bobby: And I've been made to understand that you're the reasonable board members who see how tenuous the future of YumTime is.

Jerry Purkheiser: We could be as reasonable as Phil Donahue, wouldn't change a thing. Hutch Bailey III is the CEO and will be until he decides otherwise. The Bailey family is YumTime. YumTime is the Bailey family.


Phillip John "Phil" Donahue (born December 21, 1935) is an American media personality, writer, film producer, and the creator and host of The Phil Donahue Show. His television program, later known as Donahue, was the first talk show format that included audience participation. The show had a 29-year run on national television in America that began in Dayton, Ohio, and ended in New York City in 1996. His shows have often focused on issues that divide liberals and conservatives in the United States, such as abortion, consumer protection, civil rights and war issues. His most frequent guest was Ralph Nader, for whom Donahue campaigned in 2000. Donahue also briefly hosted a talk show on MSNBC from July 2002 to March 2003. In 1996, Donahue was ranked #42 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time.
