HomeTVTalk ShowsMeredith Vieira is Taping a Talk Show Pilot For NBC Luke Kerr May 1, 2013 Talk Shows, The Today Show, The View, Today 3 Comments After years in daytime as a co-host on The View and a co-anchor on Today, is Meredith Vieira ready to take the plunge with her own daytime talk show? According to Us Weekly, Vieira is taping a pilot for NBC. Insiders tell Us that Vieira, 59, is currently filming the pilot for her NBC show, which is in the vein of Katie Couric's ABC daytime talk show. The series has not yet been picked up, but if and when it is, it would air sometime in 2014. Previously, The New York Times’ Brian Stelter reported Vieira was in talks with NBCUniversal for a syndicated talk show. Reportedly, if picked up, Vieira’s show could go head-to-head with either The View or Katie Couric’s Katie. Talk about intrigue in daytime.

But in any event…Zzzzzzzz Log in to Reply angrierblackerman May 2, 2013 Would love to see some actual NEW faces in daytime talk instead of the same old recycled female journalists from the 80’s and 90’s. Oh, and they can put her show on at 1PM Eastern on NBC, since nothing is currently in that timeslot. >) Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott May 3, 2013 Not a fan. Never was. Never will be.
