Jenny McCarthy tapes talk-show tryout -- without Oprah It was Oprah -- who had McCarthy on her afternoon show several times to talk about autism and kids -- who believed she could be a talk-show host. Oprah%E2%80%99s Harpo Productions signed her to a show, possibly to air on Winfrey%E2%80%99s new cable network, OWN. But, after a year or more of trying to develop the show, McCarthy cut ties with Harpo last month. Reportedly, Harpo wanted her to host a late-night talk show for OWN along the lines of E!%E2%80%99s %E2%80%9CChelsea Lately,%E2%80%9D hosted by Chelsea Handler. %E2%80%9CJenny was strung along for so long, and they%E2%80%99d been talking about a daytime talk show for years,%E2%80%9D says a source. %E2%80%9CHarpo was giving her the run-around" Harpo was also putting most of its time and resources into a new daily show hosted by Rosie O%E2%80%99Donnell, which is being taped in the old %E2%80%9COprah%E2%80%9D studio in Chicago and is set to debut in October. The daytime landscape -- now that Oprah is gone -- seems wide open to TV stations. The pilot was taped in front of a live audience that did not know exactly what it would be seeing until the show started. %E2%80%9CWe do not comment on shows in development,%E2%80%9D an NBC/Universal spokeswoman said yesterday.
