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 The future of Harvey’s show remains unclear, but it looks to have been replaced by Clarkson.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

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

According to Los Angeles Fire Department Capt Erik Scott: “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”

Heche is currently in a Los Angeles hospital, and had to be intubated following being severely burned.

Soaps fans know that Anne won a Daytime Emmy for her dual roles on Another World and played Vicky and Marley Hudson from 1987-2001.  She has also appeared in the films, Donnie Brasco, Six Days Seven Nights, Wag the Dog. and more.  On television, Heche has appeared in the last few years on: Dancing with the Stars, Quantico and Chicago P.D.

We will continue to monitor this developing story.

So, what do you think of the fiery crash involving Anne? Send your thoughts and prayers her way via the comment section below.  But first, watch this news report from KTLA channel 5 in Los Angeles who were on the scene of the crash.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
