LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution has sold “The Kelly Clarkson Show” to the NBC-owned TV Station group for a debut approximately a year from now.
Clarkson, former “American Idol” winner and current coach on “The Voice” who just announced a North American tour, is expected to host a talk show that will lead into the popular “Ellen” daytime talk/variety show, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Not only is it a prime slot, it boots a talk show helmed by Steve Harvey, now called “Steve” that has run in the slot for seven seasons so far. Harvey’s show has been “formidible,” Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva said, and will likely find a new slot rather than disappear.
“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,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative & Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “With Kelly’s cross-generational appeal and extraordinary ability to understand and connect with viewers, ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ will have something for everyone.”
