Daytime will have a new talker come the fall of 2019.  Grammy-winner, Kelly Clarkson’s new syndicated series, The Kelly Clarkson Show has been picked up.

According to Deadline, NBC Universal Domestic TV Distribution had sold the show to the NBC Owned TV Station group for a fall 2019 debut.

Kelly’s new show will air as the lead-in for The Ellen DeGeneres show in all but one market. This is the time slot previously held by Steve Harvey and his talk show for the last seven seasons. The future of Harvey’s show remains unclear, but it looks to have been replaced by Clarkson.

The Kelly Clarkson Show is the first first-run syndication series developed after the fall 2016 restructuring at NBCU, which saw NBC head of alternative Paul Telegdy take over the first-run syndication division. Telegdy and his unscripted team that recruited Clarkson for NBC’s The Voice.

The singer’s new talker is described as a fun, energetic show that breaks with tradition. Each episode will feature stories, celebrity guests, surprises, humor and music.  Clarkson and  her husband, Brandon Blackstock are executive producers.

So, how do you think Kelly will do in the daytime talk show arena? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I do not like her talking voice. Loud and irritating! Please give me another talk show, reality show. Give me reason to save on my cable bill, I will soon abandon cable and stay with Antenna TV/Online purchases. more classic comedy and less junk.

Who makes these ridiculous decisions? What makes Kelly Clarkson an expert at anything besides singing? This will not last. I’ll give it one season.

No talk show host is an “expert.” They’re just entertainers or personalities who people either like or don’t. If they have dynamic personalities and have good guests, the network has itself a winner for a fraction of the cost of a soap.

It’s my understanding that the show will be network-run, but I may stand corrected.

Anyway, newer talk shows haven’t had the best of luck as of late, never going beyond one or two seasons like Anderson, Katie, the Fab Life, etc, with probably The Talk and The Real being the only ones who’ve managed to stick around for as long as they have.

Best of luck for this (as it probably is going to be syndicated overseas as well) and hopefully it doesn’t affect Days at all.

Way too many talk shows. I would much prefer to bring back some soaps!

How does a talk show with stories, humor, celebrity guests, music, and surprises break with tradition? It sounds pretty bland to me, but as long as soaps aren’t impacted, it’s fine with me.

On an objective note, I think Kelly Clarkson’s great. She’s packed with personality and if anyone can host a talk show, I think hers will be one worth checking out. On a more concerned note, these afternoon shows that are creeping up on the same stations that produce the remaining soaps are a real threat. None of the four bring in huge ratings or profit and I feel these talk shows are a test drive; if they can attract a large enough audience (and they’re waaaaay cheaper to produce) our soaps will be gone sooner rather than later. LOL! So… Read more »

I certainly – hope – @DAYS of OUR Lives ; has dodged a bullet because this would be barf all over if it was Ms. Clarkson who sealed our fate “Kelly” : “YOU ARE A star” okay ? your debut and/or foray in to the public light as host/spokesperson on the Voice… was immature … you over the topped fell over every thing. GUSH no more ! just work your personality with research and insight in to the persons guesting; on YOUR new talk show. talk about the struggle of making and producing MUSIC how it is to find writers.… Read more »

As The World Turns

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

So, how do you feel about Steve being let go from GH? Do you hope Steve can return at some point? Share your thoughts via the comment section below,
