Is Meredith Vieira Exploring a Return to Daytime?
What might Meredith Vieira do to keep herself busy after leaving Who Wants to be a Millionaire? According to the New York Times, Vieira is exploring returning to daytime television with a syndicated talks show, produced by a division of NBC Universal. Reportedly, Vieira’s talk show could replace The Jeff Probst Show.
The 10 stations owned by NBC are among those that carry Mr. Probst, but his show is underperforming the season’s other new entrants, including Ms. Couric and Steve Harvey, whose talk show is syndicated by NBCUniversal. NBC might seek to pair Mr. Harvey’s show with one by Ms. Vieira.
I would absolutely love to see Vieira return to daytime talk. I always preferred her over those who filled her chair after her departure on The View. Will daytime fans welcome Vieira back? Sound off in the comments!
