During the segment titled: Mail From You Guys, Bonnie answers viewer e-mail. The show also plays games such as Dr. Know It All in which Bonnie, Don Lake, and an audience member do improvisation. On special occasions, a segment Make It Happen involves audience members learning a dance.[6] In Young People Don't Know Nothin' Bonnie asks questions about past tv shows, singers, and popular topics from 1980's and before to three young audience members. On special occasions, Niecy Nash and Bonnie will perform a parody of The Real Housewives of Atlanta in which Bonnie plays Kim, and Niecy plays NeNe.

Set design

The show's set is a Dean Martin tribute. On the wall are pictures of her dog, Charlie, and more of her family. The guests use many entrances such as the door, the stairs, or the fireman's pole. Bonnie has never gone down the fireman's pole nor the stairs. Instead Bonnie enters through an entrance near her desk.[6]
