Despite the production hiatus, Soul Train held that superlative untilwhen Entertainment Tonight surpassed it completing its 35th season. Among non-news programs, Wheel of Fortune surpassed that mark in These programs—specifically the latter, which featured a predominantly African-American group of in-studio dancers—would set the stage for what was to come to Satin Soul - Various - Soul Train (Memphis - Detroit - New York - Philadelphia) station several years later.

WCIU-TV took notice of Cornelius's outside work and inallowed him the opportunity to bring his road show to television.
Beginning as a low-budget affair, in black and white, the first episode of the program featured Jerry Butlerthe Chi-Litesand the Emotions as guests. The program's immediate success attracted the attention of another locally based firm—the Johnson Products Company manufacturers of the Afro Sheen line of hair-care products —and they later agreed to co-sponsor the program's expansion into national syndication.

Soul Train was part of a national trend toward syndicated music-oriented programs targeted at niche audiences; two other network series Hee Haw for country music, and The Lawrence Welk Show for traditional music also entered syndication in and would go on to have long runs. Though Don Cornelius moved his operations west, a local version of Soul Train continued in Amigo - Various - Roots Of Reggae Cornelius hosted both the local Chicago and Los Angeles—based national programs simultaneously but soon focused his attention solely on the national edition.
Don Cornelius hosted every national episode of Soul Train during this era except for one: comedian Richard Pryor guest hosted the final episode of the season. InChicago-based Tribune Entertainment WGN's syndication wing took over Soul Train's syndication contract; the series would continue distribution through Tribune for the rest of its original run.
Don Cornelius ended his run as host at the end of the show's 22nd season inthough he remained the show's main creative force from behind the scenes. The following fall, Soul Train began using guest hosts weekly until comedian Mystro Clark began a two-year stint as permanent host in Clark was replaced by actor Shemar Moore in InMoore was succeeded by actor Dorian Gregorywho hosted through Soul Train pulled into its last stop when production of first-run episodes was suspended at the conclusion of the —06 season, the show's 35th.

The future of Soul Train was uncertain with the announced closing of Tribune Entertainment in Decemberwhich left Don Cornelius Productions to seek a new distributor for the program. When Don Cornelius Productions still owned the program, clips of the show's performances and interviews were kept away from online video sites such as YouTube owing to copyright infringement claims.

Some commentators have called Soul Train a "black American Bandstand ," another long-running program with which Soul Train shares some similarities. Cornelius acknowledged Bandstand as a model for his program; as the years advanced and Soul Train evolved into a tradition in its own right, he tended to bristle at the Bandstand comparisons.
InDick Clarkhost and producer of Bandstand, launched Soul Unlimited — controversial for its pronounced racial overtures [ citation needed ] — to compete directly with Soul Train. Agreeing, ABC canceled it after a few Okus Resničnosti - Planet Groove - Zakon Groovitacije. Cornelius was relatively conservative in his musical tastes and was admittedly not a fan of the emerging hip hop genre, believing that the genre did not reflect positively on African-American culture one of his stated goals for the series.
Even though Cornelius would feature rap artists on Soul Train frequently during the s, he publicly would admit to the artists' faces such as Kurtis Blow that the genre was one that he did not understand; as rap continued to move further toward hardcore hip hopCornelius would admit to be frightened by the antics of groups such as Public Enemy.
Cornelius admittedly had rap artists on the show only because the genre was becoming popular among his African-American audience, though the decision alienated middle-aged, more affluent African Americans like himself. This disconnect which was openly mocked in an In Living Color sketch where Cornelius and the show were lampooned as extremely old and out of touch eventually led to Cornelius's stepping down as host in the early s and the show's losing its influence. Within the structure of the program, there were two enduring elements.

There was also the popular " Soul Train Line " a variant of the s fad then known as The Strollin which all the dancers form two lines with a space in the middle for dancers to strut down and dance in consecutive order.
Originally, this consisted of a couple—with men on one side and women on the other. In later years, men and women had their own individual lineups. Sometimes, new dance styles or moves were featured or introduced by particular dancers. In addition, there was an in-studio group of dancers who danced along to the music as it was being performed. Each musical guest usually performed twice on each program; after their first number, they were joined Blues - Django Reinhardt - Djangologie 10 (1940) the program host onstage for a brief interview.
From time to time, stand-up comedians, such as Tom Dreesen whom Don Cornelius knew from his time in Chicago and Franklyn Ajaye known in the s for being a star of the hit movie Car Washwould be featured on the program to perform a brief comedy routine.
Soul Train was also known for two popular catchphrasesreferring to itself as the "Hippest trip in America" at the beginning of the show and closing the program with " I'm Don Cornelius, and as always in parting, we wish you love, peace InCornelius gave permission for a version of the show in the United Kingdom.
