CBS Announces 'View'-Like Talk Show

USA Today

Look out, View ladies!

CBS has just announced a new daytime talk show for fall 2010. And it sounds a lot like yours, but bigger. And louder.

It will be a one-hour series (no name yet) co-hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Holly Robinson Peete, Leah Remini and Marissa Jaret Winokur.

The co-hosts will do exactly what The Viewsters do, according to the press release. They'll "swap stories, challenge each other on issues and engage the studio audience and viewers at home." They'll also interview stars and feature footage from the field and from home, shot by the co-hosts themselves.

Sara Gilbert (Roseanne) is producing and would be one of the featured panelists; The Early Show's Julie Chen (a new mom and wife of CBS chief Leslie Moonves) is another. (Contrary to Page Six, neither Lisa Rinna nor Real Housewives' Bethenny Frankel is involved). A pilot episode will be shot next month and is being considered, along with game show remake Pyramid, for fall as a replacement for cancelled soap opera As the World Turns.
