A viewer's relationship with Hart to Heart is likely going to be linked to their experience with celebrity culture as a whole. Choosing to be rid of a traditional interview format has pros, most prominently that it's not a carbon copy of every other late-night talk show on TV. That said, it also lacks the more prepared bits that some viewers really enjoy, such as recapping the news on The Daily Show, or the meta, over-the-top silliness and self-deprecation that made Conan O'Brien's shows a beloved favorite for so many years. Stripping that shiny layer away from the talk show format leaves two people talking honestly about their lives and experiences, and that's, well, just fine. It may be more or less interesting to a viewer who is more or less interested in the work these actors and musicians have done, and it's that simple.

There is some beauty in that simplicity though. Some audiences watch television to experience the effects of grand dramatic storytelling and million-dollar costume budgets. But sometimes, it's nice to have pleasant and mildly engaging background noise while you complete household chores. Let's think of it this way - Hart to Heart is probably a very low-budget endeavor for its network, meaning it's a low-effort investment for them. In turn, it also asks for a low-effort commitment from its audience. Everybody wins, even if it's not the greatest show anyone has ever seen.
