Fresh Air just rebroadcast its 1986 interview with Chuck Barris, creator of The Dating Game and subject of the new film Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (based on his auto-biography, in which he famously claims that he was also a CIA hitman). He comes off as calm, well-spoken, very, very intelligent and amazingly insightful about what works on TV. If you've ever seen the Gong Show (see some video now), or the movie, you won't believe how smart he sounds.
