While Maury Povich and Sally Jessy Raphael are wont to cover topics like “People Who Are Dumb as Dirt and Don’t Care Who Knows It,” PBS’s Charlie Rose generally finds himself chatting with administration bigwigs about NAFTA. Yet despite these differences, all three talk hosts’ programs purvey legitimate aspects of American culture. At today’s “Thinking Out Loud: The Talk Show Hosts,” Washington Post television critic Tom Shales moderates a discussion with the aforementioned trio, as well as one-time Mary Matalin sidekick Jane Wallace. At 2 p.m. at the Department of the Interior’s Main Auditorium, 1849 C St. NW. $23. (202) 357-3030. (Tina Plottel)
