Drew Barrymore "freaks out" after lighting Empire State Building yellow to celebrate her talk show

The former child star Drew Barrymore celebrated the premiere of her daytime talk show "The Drew Barrymore Show" by lighting the Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan on Monday evening. She looked conservative in a yellow silk blouse tucked into a high-waisted grey midi-skirt and brown suede boots. "How excited am I to see the Empire State Building light up in the Drew Barrymore Show signature yellow?" the 45-year-old host asked at the event. "I'm freaking out!"

She's been on every fucking show on TV the past 2 weeks. I like her - but ENOUGH. We KNOW - you have a new show!

I don't predict it will go very well. What unique talent does she bring? She's not a cook, she's not funny, she's not extremely intelligent.

What makes the execs think her show will do well? I don't get it. What show is she replacing?

I read posts like R1 complaining about seeing someone or something on TV too much and I think "bitch, maybe you just watch entirely too much TV???"

But she talks strange. Which is always a plus.

Drunk Drew was so drunk ...

How drunk was she?

I like her well enough but I agree, an hour of Drew every day just doesn't seem like anything I'd want to watch.

Very few people have that sort of persona that can draw people in every day. A host either has to have a little bit of star magic themselves, or, like the old Mike Douglas/Merv shows, be able to be almost invisible but there just enough to guide the spotlight to the guests.

I would have been more interested if Drew had done some sort of weekly Graham Norton type show. She seems like someone that could be relaxed and moderate a show that feels more like a party.

So her show is just advertising for all her products for sale.

She's exhausting. An overgrown Valley Girl with vocal fry. Lacking an in-studio audience actually makes it easier to take, as we know she'd demand everyone hoot and whoo her every move, ala Rachael Ray. She's even more politically correct/find your spirit/empowering than the other frau shows.

Why are women so L'il Miss Hall Monitor? So glad I'm gay.

So how much did the little Empire State Building stunt cost?

There’s a clip from her show doing the rounds on Twitter

It’s so fucking bad

She interviewed Reese Witherspoon and all I kept thinking was.... Reese would make the better host. She already has a book club and everything.

Who thought this was a good idea? Those queens that have been parasiting off her for three decades? They know who they are.

If she’s smart about this she’ll approach her hosting duties as a character in a role she’s playing.

It is terrible! This is going to kill her career

Why do people hate her? Because she got addicted to substances when she was a kid?

by Anonymousreply 1709/16/2020

I don’t think people hate her at all, R17

The show is just terrible

I like Drew, but it takes some talent and intelligence to interview people. Joan Rivers was surprisingly good at it (I know I'm typing old here). To be a good interviewer, you have to let your subject shine and the interviewer fades into the background a bit. You also have to actually listen to the answers and switch gears, if necessary. This is where James Lipton failed; he was well-researched but too stuck on his cards and original plan.

So are actors, even successful ones, so thirsty for work they're starting to branch out into merchandising and publishing like GOOP? I really don't know but the market for this crap has to be saturated as fuck.

by Anonymousreply 2009/16/2020

I watched the first half of the first episode. They threw everything AND the kitchen sink into this show. I really like Drew, but I was exhausted by the first commercial break.

R2 - I'm stuck at home during a pandemic and not working. There's only so much mischief a boy can get into.

by Anonymousreply 2309/16/2020

I love her but the show is a mess. Not hopeless, but in need of someone who can give it shape, get rid of her awful monologs and that Drew's News segment,, and get her to stop fawning over her guests. She knows Jane Fonda so her geeking out over her during the interview was inexplicable and stupid.

I was about to say -- is Drew particularly New York? She seems all LA to me.

I’m so sick of hearing about this talk show.

by Anonymousreply 2609/16/2020

I do like Drew. I wonder if she was one of the influences for the Alexis character in Schitt's Creek though.

by Anonymousreply 2709/16/2020

Is this a real show or a series on Apple+ like the Aniston and Witherspoon one?

by Anonymousreply 2809/16/2020

All of her life she has needed a gay stylist.

R19, Joan Rivers was an intelligent, witty, highly educated woman.

She's no Ricki Lake.

This Is where Jimmy Fallon fails miserably.

Not a hater, but did Drew receive any education at all beyond on set tutors? She seems like the kind of girl who would have flourished during a year long study abroad.

by Anonymousreply 33Last Thursday at 5:54 AM

She's screechy when even slightly excited. So very annoying.

I do hope she gets it together. She is getting great guests but she needs to interview not just praise whoever is in front of her.

by Anonymousreply 34Last Thursday at 6:13 AM

Im afraid this is going to be another Ellen show - constant ass kissing of guests and that the audience will be screaming the whole time.

who thought this was a good idea?

by Anonymousreply 36Last Thursday at 10:52 AM

I love her but she's dumber than a box of hair, nearly Beyonce' level stupid. How can she helm a talk show? All those stay-at-home mommies who MIGHT watch her are too busy schooling little Wyatt and Olivia. The afternoon urban, black, Latino and mouth-breathing white people who feed at the trough of daytime television and trash doctor and judge shows will have zero interest. That isn't Drew's demographic to begin with. So, who's left? A smattering of gays and a handful of childless Gwenyth Paltrow types? That's hardly enough to get her to more than one, two seasons at most.

They should've given this time slot to Carnie Wilson.
