Drew Barrymore’s Talk Show Bows Today

Another new talk show enters the fray on Monday, when Drew Barrymore makes her highly-anticipated debut with her self-titled syndicated daytime talk show.

The former child movie star who went to a successful career in films as an adult, and who has also been a producer and a director, is excited about this new arena for her talents.

The talk show has certainly lined-up a great guests for the series opener, all former co-stars of Drew which include: Adam Sandler (Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, Blended), and Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels).  In addition, Drew has a big surprise in store for a deserving family of essential workers in one of the show’s signature segments, “Designed by Drew.”

The rest of premiere week also features celebrity heavyweights: Jane Fonda, Reese Witherspoon, and Charlize Theron.

Barrymore told the New York Post about one of her segments on the daily talker: “I’m an obsessive information, news and pop-culture junkie. When I aggregate so much information for myself, I find a lot of stories so fascinating beyond that front section of the newspaper or the top headline. I think ‘Drew’s News’ is a mixed bag, which is how I like digesting the information of the world — human interest, weird, fun facts. It feels like a newspaper where, to be a responsible citizen, you have to understand what’s happening in the front section but also in sports, metro, arts and sciences, business and even obituaries — which make me want to go and live a better life because someone else did and it’s very inspiring.”

Watch a very cute promo for the series below with a very young Drew at its epicenter.

So, how do you think Drew’s new talker will do? Will you be checking it out? (Check local listings in your area for times and stations) Let us know in the comment section.

Saw it, and it was quite fun. Hope to see more of her.

I have loved Drew since she was a little girl, and I’d would like to continue liking her. I watched one show and she wore me out. She acts like she is on speed with all her hyperactive behavior.If she calms down some I’ll give her show another try.
