Meredith Vieira Daytime Show Is Happening

She'll start hosting "The Meredith Vieira Show" on NBC in Sept. 2014."

The one-hour show will tape in New York City, on a set designed to look like Vieira's home.

I am going to go ahead and cancel this in advance.

the mere mention of her name induces narcolepsy in many Neilson households.

by Anonymousreply 207/09/2013

I hope she has a weekly co-host to help keep things moving. She's a nice lady but not very dynamic.

by Anonymousreply 307/09/2013

who the hell do they imagine will care about this?

by Anonymousreply 407/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 507/09/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 707/09/2013

Is her husband still alive?

by Anonymousreply 807/09/2013

I love R1.

How is she any different than Katie? What's supposed to be the appeal here?

by Anonymousreply 907/09/2013

What will this mean for DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Starring SUZANNE ROGERS as Paul Williams?

by Anonymousreply 1007/09/2013

MV is an MVP for NBC.

by Anonymousreply 1107/09/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 1307/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1507/09/2013

Yeah, and when is MY talk show finally premiering?

by Anonymousreply 1607/09/2013

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?

Come ON!

by Anonymousreply 1707/09/2013

she's a conservative

by Anonymousreply 1807/09/2013

didn't she utter a homophobic comment while interviewing someone on the Today show?

by Anonymousreply 1907/09/2013

Meredith is fiscally conservative and socially liberal. She is tolerant of gay people.

by Anonymousreply 2007/09/2013

Tolerant? She hated when two men hugged on camera

by Anonymousreply 2107/09/2013

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 . . .

by Anonymousreply 2207/09/2013

Vieira? Were her parents Portuguese or Brazilian? If so, the bitch was probably raised Catholic. No wonder she's a homophobic cunt.

by Anonymousreply 2307/09/2013

That doesn't sound so revolutionary to me, r24. There are a ton of shows like that now. Meredith will need to do something to stand out from the batch.

by Anonymousreply 2407/09/2013

R26. I see that comprehending sarcasm isn't one of your strong points.

by Anonymousreply 2507/09/2013

Apparently sarcasm is lost on r26.

by Anonymousreply 2607/09/2013

If Kris Jenner can have her own talk show, anyone can.

by Anonymousreply 2707/09/2013

Kris Jenner has charisma to spare. Meredith is dull dull dull.

by Anonymousreply 2807/09/2013

Meredith Vieira seems better suited to doing one on one interviews, but NOT in daytime. She always looks like she could use hours of more sleep.

by Anonymousreply 2907/09/2013

There goes my hope that she'd take over hosting Jeopardy when Alex Trebek retires.

by Anonymousreply 3007/09/2013

I love this bitch.

On Millionaire and the View, she could let her hair down and get really inappropriate, which you sensed was natural for her. The Today Show cramped her style.

by Anonymousreply 3107/09/2013

[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.

by Anonymousreply 3207/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3307/09/2013

So what's Meredith doing between the time Cedric The Entertainer replaces her on MILLIONAIRE this Fall, and Fall 2014?

by Anonymousreply 3407/09/2013

She's fucking the Marine at R31.

by Anonymousreply 3507/09/2013

Who cares? I suppose there will be Meredith Vieira Daytime Show threads aplenty from here on out through its premiere 14 months from now.

by Anonymousreply 3607/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3707/09/2013

R28, charisma is part of the whore's bag o' tricks! Alas, scum can have charisma.

by Anonymousreply 3807/09/2013

This is fantastic news. If there is anything that daytime television is lacking, it's another talk show.

But doesn't the show that Sara Gilbert created already have this?? She was first.

by Anonymousreply 4007/10/2013

THE TALK is actually a lot of fun now.

by Anonymousreply 4107/10/2013

Meredith comes across as believable and down to earth. Katie comes across as a big phoney.

by Anonymousreply 4207/10/2013

I can't put Katie down since she saved this nation from Sarah Palin.

by Anonymousreply 4307/10/2013

Excellent point, R43. I was never really a fan until the Palin interview. Then it all changed.

What are they having some blind invalid come staggering through in his soiled underwear every 5 minutes?

by Anonymousreply 4507/10/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4607/10/2013

I'm surprised she's doing this, since she's super lazy and doesn't like putting in a full day of work.

by Anonymousreply 4707/10/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4909/08/2014

Well I'm going to tune in now just to see JLo sitting on dog peed furniture.

by Anonymousreply 5009/08/2014

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.

by Anonymousreply 5109/08/2014

You can bet I'll be watching everyday, except Monday thru Friday.

by Anonymousreply 5209/08/2014

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?

by Anonymousreply 5309/08/2014

I don't think she'll even get a second season, like Anderson and Katie. She should've just stayed on Today or Millionaire.

by Anonymousreply 5409/08/2014

i went to a live taping...




although half of the workers there are hot and gay

got some free stuff

eh her shows won't last long

this guy works there is so cute...

hideous broad

by Anonymousreply 5704/23/2015

Why does the show suck so hard?

She has talent and seems way more comfortable than when she was on the Today show. But the content is just dreadful.
