Could actor Jerry O'Connell be the next face of Daytime TV talk? While Sony Pictures Television denied Cindy Adams'chatter about Queen Latifah's self-titled talk show being canned next fall, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter CBS is developing a female-centric talk show for O'Connell, just in case The Queen Latifah Show is cancelled after this season.
From the report:
If the Queen is dethroned, CBS has actor Jerry O’Connell developing a talk show that appears to be aimed at the same heavily female daytime audience.
The show, which will have co-hosts and guest stars, is taping at least three test shows Tuesday and Wednesday at Sunset Bronson Studios in Los Angeles.
Reportedly, if O'Connell's show tests well, it could be ready to air as soon as Sept. 2015.
