Della! (also known as The Della Reese Show) was a talk show hosted by Della Reese. It aired for one season from 1969 to 1970. Reese and her sidekick, comedian Sandy Baron, welcomed many celebrities onto the hour-long show during its run. Peter Myers conducted the orchestra. Della! is notable for being the first talk show to have an African-American woman as its host.

All episodes are currently lost and it's unclear how much of the footage may even survive. Only a few clips have surfaced on YouTube.
