April 22 @ 11:30 PM

NEW YORK, NY, April 19, 2001 – Emmy Award-winning talk show host, Dick Cavett brings his comedic timing and talent to guest-host a special episode of Subway Q & A. Cavett’s goes underground to capture commuters at their best and yes, even at their worst, through a series of off-beat and sometimes outrageous questions asked on the subway.

Cavett makes his debut as host on Subway Q & A on Metro (Time Warner Cable – Channel 70, Cablevision – Channel 16) Sunday, April 22nd at 11:30 PM.

During his forty years in the entertainment business, Cavett has been the host of highly acclaimed, and often controversial, talk shows on network, cable, and public television. Cavett has also starred on Broadway, has had several TV show guest appearances including Cheers, The Edge and The Simpsons and has appeared in such feature films as Beetlejuice and Forrest Gump.
