I am going to go ahead and cancel this in advance.
the mere mention of her name induces narcolepsy in many Neilson households.
I hope she has a weekly co-host to help keep things moving. She's a nice lady but not very dynamic.
who the hell do they imagine will care about this?
The fraus love Meredith. Plus, Meredith comes across as a smart, knowledgeable, trustworthy and capable newswoman and television personality.
Meredith's show will succeed due to her believability and down-to-earth nature. This show will succeed more than Katie Couric's show--and while I like Katie very much--the public has sort of a 'love her or hate her' reaction to Katie. On the other hand, most people tend to like Meredith a lot.
It's not an NBC network show, it's syndicated (like "Katie" and "Live With Kelly and Michael" are not ABC network shows; they're syndicated by ABC.) There really aren't any network daytime talk shows other than "The View" and "The Talk."
WTF? Who is the freak at r6?
Is her husband still alive?
I love R1.
How is she any different than Katie? What's supposed to be the appeal here?
What will this mean for DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Starring SUZANNE ROGERS as Paul Williams?
MV is an MVP for NBC.
she will do just fine. Star Jones is jealous.
No it actually means Days Of Our Lives starring Doug Davidson as Maggie Horton Kiriakis!That is what they will be reduced to!A crossdressing star.
Seriously DOOL is still making money for NBC so it would be stupid to them to cancel it outrightly.The ratings have gone up so it looks safe for the time being.As much pull as Sony has with Y and R over at CBS I think it would be impossible for Sony to twist CBS's arm to take Days on.
wouldn't it be fab if she replaced Kl & Yoda?
Kathie Lee and Hoda are are goddamn funny. I don't get to see them ofetn, but I like them a lot--very entertaining and appealing.
Since Meredith's show will premiere in fall of 2014, she can fill the timeslot voided by Kris Jenner's fall 2013 show....which will fail.
Yeah, and when is MY talk show finally premiering?
Meredith is a great lady. She hosted that game show for over a decade.
How can anybody possibly find fault with this ratings grabber/devoted wife?
I could understand people urinating on a Star Jones talk fest, but Meredith Vieira?
she's a conservative
didn't she utter a homophobic comment while interviewing someone on the Today show?
Meredith is fiscally conservative and socially liberal. She is tolerant of gay people.
[quote]didn't she utter a homophobic comment while interviewing someone on the Today show?
I remember, in the early days of The View, they were discussing whether gays make better best friends to women than other women.
Meredith said that her best friend in the world was a gay man she'd been friendly with since college.
The said friend's grandmother was watching the show and had no idea her grandson was gay until that moment.
They all had a good laugh about it the following week.
The View was quite fun in the early days. It became so serious and at the same time stupid.
I don't understand how, in 2013, anyone watches network daytime TV anymore -- when, with very little work, you have access to an almost unimaginable amount of content, whether through DVDs/blu-ray or streaming.
So what's Meredith doing between the time Cedric The Entertainer replaces her on MILLIONAIRE this Fall, and Fall 2014?
She's fucking the Marine at R31.
Who cares? I suppose there will be Meredith Vieira Daytime Show threads aplenty from here on out through its premiere 14 months from now.
I think Meredith is far more interesting than Katie Couric. It is very hard to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up.
R28, charisma is part of the whore's bag o' tricks! Alas, scum can have charisma.
This is fantastic news. If there is anything that daytime television is lacking, it's another talk show.
[quote]This show is going to revolutionize daytime TV! It'll feature cool diet and beauty tips, cooking segments, interviews with actors promoting their latest movies and TV shows . . .
But doesn't the show that Sara Gilbert created already have this?? She was first.
THE TALK is actually a lot of fun now.
Meredith comes across as believable and down to earth. Katie comes across as a big phoney.
I can't put Katie down since she saved this nation from Sarah Palin.
Excellent point, R43. I was never really a fan until the Palin interview. Then it all changed.
[quote] on a set designed to look like Vieira's home
What are they having some blind invalid come staggering through in his soiled underwear every 5 minutes?
The upcoming new talk shows all sound HORRIBLE. Vieira, Jenner, Frankel? NO NO NO. Vieira is just boring and the other 2 are unlikable cunts.
I'm surprised she's doing this, since she's super lazy and doesn't like putting in a full day of work.
Morley "Still Alive!" Safer
It's actually a perfect schedule for someone who's lazy - you can tape a week's worth of shows in one day.
I saw a couple of minutes of it while waiting in line at the bank this morning. She was interviewing Jennifer Lopez (horrible first guest). Anyhow, that ratty furniture she brought from her own house that her dogs chewed and peed on is horrible.
Well I'm going to tune in now just to see JLo sitting on dog peed furniture.
Whoever did this seemed to try really hard to copy the hideous blandness and irrelevance of Katie Couric's daytime show, right down to the cloying lower case font of the show title.
You can bet I'll be watching everyday, except Monday thru Friday.
JLo's pants were hideous. The house band is awful. I couldn't keep it on for more than 5 minutes. How do people sit through these shows from start to finish?
I don't think she'll even get a second season, like Anderson and Katie. She should've just stayed on Today or Millionaire.
