Katie Couric will have some competition now that NBC Universal announced yesterday it’s launching its own syndicated talker with Meredith Vieira, entitled The Meredith Vieira Show! 

According to Deadline.com, the series is set to debut in the fall of 2014. Vieira recently shot a pilot for the new series and had began talks with NBCU after she announced she was leaving Disney’s syndicated game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire after 11 years.

Network chairman, Ted Harbert said of the Vieira talk show decision:  “All of us at NBCU are so excited about this new show with Meredith.  She creates an instant connection with audiences with her smart, quick-witted and down-to-earth style. This entertaining and substantive show will be a great way to reach her loyal daytime fans as well as new ones who will discover why Meredith is one of America’s most loved television personalities.”

So another talk show is in the works daytime fans! What do you think? Interested to see how Meredith fairs in the daytime landscape gabfest arena?  Are you concerned that another talk show is being mounted?  Let us know your thoughts!

I’m split on having another daytime talk show. What I like about Meredith is that her guests will like her sweet and yet funny remarks which will make them comfortable around her. She is also pretty informed on many areas of topics. What I hope is that she gets a fresh look about her such as her hair and makeup as I think it would help launch her new show. I probably will not regularly as I would prefer to binge-watch other programs on t.v. However, good luck.

Too many talk shows. But, Meredith will do better than Katie. Her days are numbered.

We need another talk show like we need a hole in the head! But I do think Meredith is one of the more reputable TV hosts currently on air.

With so many talk shows on air– what’s left to talk about? Haven’t they all pretty much covered everything under the sun? Unless she has a fresh format to offer that is different from all the Oprah copycats that sprung up since Ms. O started– I say maybe it is time to invest in game shows again. I rather watch a good quiz show I can play along with than listen to another talk show.

I like Meredith better than some others who have talk shows but ANOTHER TALK SHOW? Why do all these people leave their jobs saying how tired they are, etc, then run out & get their own talk show? Is it an ego thing? They can’t stand not to be on tv or something? Why don’t they just retire & go away! They sure can afford it.

Is she maried to a NBC honcho like Julie Chen is? I will fight hard to
prevent the end of DAYS. I hope ATWT viewers do’nt watch the talk,
which was handed to Julie by her husband after axing ATWT. I wàs
never a fan of ATWT, but I felt the soap world was betrayed by that
husband and wife.

I’ve always liked Meredith and I think she’d fare well with a talk show. That said, I understand that talk shows are cheap to produce with the potential to be very profitable and producers want to try to find the next Oprah or Phil Donahue, but I just think we’ve reached a saturation point where there are just too many daytime talk shows featuring the same topics and guests. It may be time to invest in bringing back some more game shows to have some more variety. After all, they’re cheap to produce too.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
