Saudi Arabia: A New and Popular Talk Show

Dawood Al-Shirian is the host of one of the most watched shows in Saudi Arabia, “Al Thamina ma Dawood.”  (8 o’clock with Dawood)  This show airs five days per week on MBC1 at 8 pm.

Host Al-Shirian is known for speaking his mind and even occasionally losing his temper during a show.  The program is Saudi Arabia’s first talk show which features everyday political, social and economic topics.

Viewers like to tune in to ‘Al Thamina ma Dawood’ not only for the daily discussions but because of Al-Shirian.  He is not shy nor does he mince words on issues that are of interest to every family.

He discusses women driving; he discusses what kind of food is provided at charity events and he demonstrates compassion when he learns that a guest did not know his parents.  Al-Shirian displays emotions and asks questions that are typically reserved to private settings and not in a live broadcast.  As a result, he has an avid following and has won both the trust and heart of his audience.
