Kris Jenner In Talks For Twentieth Daytime Talk Show Eying Test Run On Fox Stations

Kris Jenner Talk Show FoxEXCLUSIVE: Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, the first lady of reality television, is eying a move into daytime. I’ve learned that Jenner is in talks with Twentieth Television to host a daytime talk show. Discussions are also underway for a test run of the show on the Fox TV Stations as early as this summer. There had been speculation that Jenner, who has built a TV empire with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians franchise, is looking to launch her own talk show. Last year, she served as a fill-in host on The Talk and the fourth hour of Today. Meanwhile, the six-week test run on the Fox stations has become increasingly popular as it has spawned two series to go to national syndication: Wendy Williams and Bethenny. “Everyone wants to do a test with the Fox TV stations,” a spokesperson for the stations said, declining further comment.

This fall saw a glut of new daytime talk shows, none of which has broken through, including Katie, Steve Harvey, Jeff Probst and Twentieth TV’s Ricki Lake. Already testing the waters for a fall 2013 launch is Sony TV’s Queen Latifah talker.

  • No! She should consider E! the “Kardashian” Network before syndication. E! like The Kardaashians so it will work better but I still say NO! Noo body will watch and no one will even remeber if it’s on the air.

  • Can we please have a woman who reaches higher and leads us up to a better place? Not someone who enforces and represents all of the things wrong in our culture today. We need more than a cute face and personality and we certainly need more than the lowest common denominator!

    • And the worst thing is she’s missing the face and the personality

  • Absolutley not! I will boycott it. I rather have a new cheap daytime mini-series on daytime tv. The Kardashians are emmbarassement to television.

  • Kris will be fantastic. She’ll bring controversy, star power, glitz, and won’t try to pretty up the truth…she’ll dish the dirt with the best of them.
