Kelly Clarkson Is Getting Her Own Daytime Talk Show as Lead-In to 'Ellen'
Kelly Clarkson's daytime talk show will premiere next fall, airing weekdays as the lead-in to "Ellen" in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Miami, San Diego, and Hartford. Boston fans can also watch, but in a different time slot.
The official announcement describes the new daytime talk show as...
"...a fun, energetic show that breaks with tradition. In each episode audiences will experience an hour full of remarkable stories, celebrity guests, spontaneous surprises, humor, heart and, of course, good music! It’s like a weekday brunch party with a fascinating guest list of people who would otherwise never meet."
Kelly Clarkson shared her own statement on the news:
"I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations. Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
Kelly previewed her news last night on "The Tonight Show":
"But in the long term, the casualty could turn out to be the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives, which has aired on NBC since 1965 but is only renewed through next summer. Days has been on the cancellation bubble for years as one of the last classic soaps still airing in network daytime."
In the meantime, Kelly Clarkson is returning for "The Voice" Season 15, which premieres Monday, September 24 on NBC.
