CBS Hopes To Pick ATWT Replacement By July

Variety is reporting that CBS is developing a new daytime talk show, SAY IT NOW, starring Valerie Bertinelli and Australian TV host Rove McManus. A pilot was recently shot.

CBS TV Distribution has been looking to develop a talk show for years around Bertinelli. In 2008, the distributor worked with Bertinelli on plans to morph the actress' book "Losing It And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time" into a show.

CBS hopes to pick its AS THE WORLD TURNS replacement by July. In the running are a new version of PYRAMID, hosted by Andy Richter; a mother-themed talk show hosted by CBS' Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Holly Robinson-Peete; and a food-centric game show starring Emeril Lagasse.

  1. Wow, these replacements all sound awful. Which is good, I look forward to CBS's ratings collapse with both ATWT and GL gone.
