The Charles Perez Show is a syndicated daytime talk show distributed by Tribune Entertainment, which ran from December 19, 1994[1] to January 26, 1996. Seeing low ratings, most likely due to the glut of syndicated talk shows which debuted during Perez's second season, Tribune chose to cancel the program in mid-season, ending with a 1.7 average.[2][3]

The show became a source of controversy in March 1995, when a segment aired which reportedly used an actress to discuss personal matters with the sister of the person she was playing.[4]
