I think it could work, but, aside from the financial angle, a lot would depend on who the guests were (local boy/girl makes good, international best-seller, somebody whose book went through a vanity press, etc etc). Content and perceived validity of that content would be vital.
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

The success would also depend highly on the host of the show. Many talk shows fail because the host just isn't entertaining. And I would think that it has to have more than just interviews. Take a look at all the successful talk shows. They do more than talk. They entertain.

Charlie Rose interviews writers fairly often on his PBS talk show.
