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 The future of Harvey’s show remains unclear, but it looks to have been replaced by Clarkson.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

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
