When it comes to filming late night or daytime talk shows such as the ones shown in the clips below, what cameras do you recommeded be used for their filming? Generally recommended? Mist commonly used? What makes and models of cameras? Types? What specifications should they have? Abilities? Features?  
 
Example of daytime talk show:
 
Example of late night talk show:
 
Also, how should they be used? What should their settings be set to? Film cameras are recommended to be set to film at 24fps and shot in 4k/1080p with a shutter speed of 50 for instance --from what I understand-- what about the cameras used for daytime and/or late night talk shows? Do they need to be shot in a flat color profile for better post production? What if they're being used for live tapings? Pre-recorded episodes? What other information should be known about the cameras recommended to be used for those filmings, and how they should be used? What have you used to film those types of shows, if you ever have? Why? Why not other cameras? What have other people you know used? Why? Why not other cameras?

The usual cameras are broadcast 2/3" studio cameras, these are made by Sony, Grass Valley, Ikegami, also Hitachi. They tend to be either interlace or higher progressive frame rates .(59.94p or 50p). The colour correction will usually be done live with a vision engineer adjusting the cameras, so that they match.

 

You should read up on multi camera studios. However, if you're doing online, you can use lower cost alternative methods.
