Charlie Rose is an American television interview show, with Charlie Rose as executive producer, executive editor, and host. The show is syndicated on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and is owned by Charlie Rose, LLC. Rose interviews thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, businesspersons, leaders, scientists, and other newsmakers.
The show premiered on September 30, 1991. It is presented by WNET, where it first aired as a local program.
Funding for the show is primarily provided by donations from various corporations and charitable foundations. The show has been criticized for not disclosing the list of donors even if the show is considered "public" broadcasting.
In 2007, the video archive of past interviews was added to the website for free viewing. In a partnership with Google, nearly 4000 hours of video was added to Google Video including complete hour-long episodes as they originally aired. The videos are now unavailable after Google Video shut down.
Charlie Rose suffered shortness of breath while in Syria to interview President Assad in March 2006. Rose was flown to Paris, where he was scheduled to undergo cardiac mitral valve repair.

"You're talking to someone who's very, very lucky. It could have gone the other way," Rose told his hometown Henderson, N.C. newspaper The Daily Dispatch in May 2006. He also wrote on his show's website that he looks forward to "all the years of interesting guests and good conversations we have ahead of us."
There have been hundreds of guests on the show. Guests and guest hosts have included:
