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 The future of Harvey’s show remains unclear, but it looks to have been replaced by Clarkson.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 »

REPORT: Days of our Lives Renewal Update: Sony and NBC In Talks, Insiders Optimistic While Show Pauses Production

Every year around this time, Days of our Lives renewal has been its own cliffhanger.  With the show taping episodes so far in advance and wrapping their current season, the series paused production and went dark on April 16th, according to TV Line.

Now comes the waiting game and according to a report from Deadline on Wednesday, NBC and Sony are continuing to be in talks to bring the series back for its 57th season. While no one from any camp is officially commenting on the negotiations, their sources are reporting that things do look optimistic, as of now.

The report indicates that in anticipation of a renewal, the producers have been making if-come deals with key cast members in the past few weeks and the writing team is said to be hard at work on potential scripts for the new season.

In the past, DAYS’ renewal had taken several months to pan out, because of how the show’s distributor Sony Pictures Television has to adjust its business model to continue the show without going in the red.

Even though over the years DAYS had declined in the linear ratings, there appears to be a commitment by the studio and NBC to find ways to keep it on the air.

So, are you hopeful that DAYS will survive yet another negotiation for renewal? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Some great news for daytime fans!  Following a deal announced today between National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and CBS, the network now has a two-year deal to broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards.

CBS will present this year’s 48th Annual Daytime Emm Awards, on Friday, June 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network and it will stream live and on demand on Paramount+.   This will mark the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other network.

In addition, this is the first time since 2008 that one network will broadcast both the Daytime and Primetime Emmy awards in the same year. CBS last hosted both specials in 2005.

 

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
