A new voice is headed to daytime television, Mrs. Kelly Clarkson!
Clarkson has landed a talk show, “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” which has been sold to the NBC Owned Television Station group for its fall 2019 debut, NBC Universal announced Wednesday.
The Kelly Clarkson Show, which is set to debut on local NBC stations in fall 2019 and will serve as a lead-in for The Ellen Show, looks to change the chat show game by bringing a fun new energy while also breaking with tradition. Each episode will feel like a “weekday brunch party with a fascinating guest list of people who would otherwise never meet.”
The one-hour show will feature the Grammy winner as host, and will act as the lead-in to “Ellen” on NBC-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas-Fort Worth, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Miami, San Diego, Hartford and Boston. These 11 stations can be viewed in almost 30 percent of U.S. households, NBC said.
President of Alternative & Reality Group, NBC Entertainment Paul Telegdy added: “The incomparable Kelly Clarkson takes everything she touches to another level and we couldn’t be happier to bring her talent, humor, generosity and compassion to daytime next year. With Kelly’s cross-generational appeal and extraordinary ability to understand and connect with viewers, ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ will have something for everyone.”
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson said in a statement. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
Fall TV in 2019 never looked so good!
