Looks like the daytime talk show market is going to get more than just the new Kelly Clarkson Show in the fall of 2019.

Tamron Hall, the former Today co-host will definitely launch her new talker, as well.

Disney ABC has cleared the new syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Hall on the ABC Owned Television Stations Group for fall 2019.

According to Deadline:  The project had been in development at Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International for the past couple of months.

They report that it is unclear where the Tamron Hall show will go on the ABC stations line-ups. Depending on the market, it could replace Rachel Ray, which currently airs on three of the eight ABC stations, or Right This Minute.

The ABC Owned Television Stations Group include the following markets: WABC-TV in New York; KABC-TV in Los Angeles; WLS-TV in Chicago; WPVI-TV in Philadelphia; KGO-TV in San Francisco; KTRK-TV in Houston; WTVD-TV in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; and KFSN-TV in Fresno, California. The eight stations represent 23% of the country’s television households and will serve as the show’s launch group.

“We’re excited to bring Tamron Hall to our ABC Owned Stations next fall and are confident she’ll be a unique and welcome voice in daytime,” said Wendy McMahon, president, ABC Owned Television Stations Group. “Tamron is refreshingly authentic and approachable. She genuinely cares about people, their struggles and their triumphs. We know she’ll connect with our audiences in a personal and positive way.”

So, what do you think about a Tamron Hall talker and more gabfest’s entering the once soap opera filled day-part? Comment below.  But first watch this teaser video with Tamron of what she says her show will feel like.

    Seriously? Who is going to watch this? I dont get how Hollywood dumps money on stuff like this. Sure, I’m a soap fan and want ALL 4 to survive but daytime, no matter what you put on these days is on its last leg! I would put more money into products that are tried and true and promote them more. I dont know how many times I’ve told someone I watch GH and their comment is always, “Oh, is that still on?”

    This BETTER NOT meant that GH is cancelled. ABC should know better!!!!

      Just what I was thinking! I like Tamron, and I’m glad she’s getting her own show because she was screwed royally by NBC! But, I hope this is not some plot to get GH’s timeslot! I still have not forgiven ABC Daytime for cancelling AMC & OLTL and replacing it with The Chew and another equally cheap, horrid show! When that was cancelled, I wasn’t sorry — until I remembered that a whole bunch of people lost their jobs — AGAIN!

    Ugh, WHY oh WHY oh WHY do these (mostly) women believe they can host a successful talk show? I can’t stand Katie Couric or Meredith Veira, but if they couldn’t do it then Tamron Living-Brain-Donor Hall certainly isn’t going to do it.

    I think with each new talk show on a soap opera network we’re getting closer and closer to the end of the soap era. Terrible…

        oh i know…. but hey, isn’t a soap site a place to lament ?

        • rebecca1

          September 27, 2018 at 10:21 am

          LOL; yes indeed. Well, lament, praise, love, dislike and all that jazz. But, sometimes, it seem some posters think that canceled soaps will be revived. Until/if there’s a way to produce them more cost effectively it’s not happening. All we can do is hope the remaining ones aren’t ripped from our screens too suddenly/quickly. It’s not a matter of if, but when.

            Hi rebecca1…We’re probably lucky there are still four soaps. It seems everything that has made a civil, progressive, entertaining society for our era has been disappearing. I’m not trying to say that all things have been positive, still a lot to work on, and a lot has regressed. But at least the soaps have tried to explore some of the more social topics in their ongoing stories. I must say, for me, though, some of the “news” has been riveting lately. Talk about drama. I have been glued to what’s happening re: the supreme court nomination. Don’t want to get into politics (which I really dislike), but good for the women at the elevator, or one who had the courage to testify with nothing to gain. No matter how it turns out it shows how just a few passionate, well spoken words, at the right place and time can make some pause/difference. At least for now.

    Nothing against Tamara but another talk show? How boring & if politics are discussed I think I will scream. I hope she does not replace Rachael Ray at least she cooks. If her time is 10am that is Rachaels slot.

    I don’t think I can stand yet another talk show, no matter who the host is. It just better not interfere with Rachael Ray. I really miss The Chew, a show where I learned a lot. I absolutely HATE The View, a bunch of cackling women. I don’t want to know about anyone else’s politics. I’ll form my own political views, thank you. Please leave Rachael Ray’s show alone. I love to watch Kelly and Ryan, and I enjoy Right This Minute. Where else can they put this new show? We don’t want it or need it.

    We don’t need another talk show. The Tamron Hall Show is being advertised for ABC’s 10 AM slot in Philadelphia. No word on what is happening to the Rachel Ray Show which has been in this time slot for years. 1st ABC cancels the Chew which has always had higher ratings than Stratham & Sarah & now you’re messing with Rachel Ray? Time to stop watching ABC.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
