Marie Osmond Gets Fall ’09 Talk Show

Jan 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Marie Osmond, recently seen tapping her toes in “Dancing With the Stars,” will return to center stage, agreeing to a deal with syndicator Program Partners for upcoming daytime talk show “Marie,” set to launch in fall 2009.
“I like the philosophy that Program Partners brought to the table,” Ms. Osmond said Tuesday at a NATPE press conference announcing the show. “They’re giving me the freedom to do some things that I feel strongly about, and the timing is right for a show like this.”
Ms. Osmond first hit the airwaves in 1976 in prime-time series “Donny & Marie.” She returned to television first in the 1995 ABC sitcom “Maybe This Time” and then with brother Donny in 1998 to co-host “Donny and Marie,” a talk/entertainment show from Sony that lasted two seasons.
Program Partners now becomes the first distrib to officially announce programming for fall 2009. Other series rumored to be in the pipeline include “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” from Twentieth and “Power of 10″ from Sony.
The new show comes on the heels of Ms. Osmond’s success on “Dancing Wth the Stars,” in which she finished third. She also drew national attention for personal traumas during the competition, including fainting during week five and her father’s death in week seven.
Program Partners also is distributing “Family Court” for the fall season.
“Marie Osmond is unique in this industry,” said Josh Raphaelson, co-founder of Program Partners. “She is a star with an authenticity that makes her relatable to every woman in America.”

  1. I can’t believe that! Move over Tyra, here comes someone much more annoying! She aught to be home raising her 29 kids! And it’s reported that she ever dated a biker star because of mybikerdate.com

  2. I think this is great news. Marie is a very smart lady, and I thought she and Donny did a wonderful job with their talk show in the late 90’s. Good luck Marie!

  3. I love Marie! So looking forward to seeing her in her own daytime talk show. I just hope she doesn’t laugh like a crazy woman at inappropriate times which she has done in some interviews. Hopefully her meds are all sorted out now and she is stable enough to handle the stress. Love ya Marie!!

  4. Wonderful! It’s about time. Marie will be great. I say move over Oprah! Kathy

  5. Another big coup for Program Partners. They are in the big time now.

  6. Hey Jenny,
    You’re the one who’s really annoying. Why don’t you climb back under that rock from which your Mother hatched you. Huh?

  7. This is the best news that we have heard in a long time! Right on the heels of Donny and Marie selling their entire week of shows out for NEXT July in Vegas; and Marie’s sell out Christmas tour! YAY MARIE!!!!

  8. This just goes to show you that ANYONE can get a talk show these days. Sheeze!

  9. Yeahhhhhhhhh! I am a die hard Osmond fan..any of them….
    Can’t get enough of them! I can’t wait!

  10. Hey Georgia, maybe your meds need to be in order, Huh?

  11. please God no.

  12. I agree with Sue when she wrote Jenny is the annoying one. Marie will be the best for a talk show, up there with Oprah. She is identifiable to ALL women, NOT JUST IN AMERICA BUT ALl OVER THE WORLD. you go girl, Marie.

  13. Marie is an excellent choice for a talk show host. Those of you who disagree, remember now, the same remote that turns your tv on also turns it off.If you know how to use it- if not, get the remote control instructions out and read it. Might be better entertainment for you anyway, judging by your backwards, upside down, inbred, miscreant thinking.

  14. WOW this is amazing!!! Can’t wait for this to start up next year!!! Let’s not wait, lets do it now!!!

  15. I can’t wait for Marie’s talk show next year. I miss Donny’s and Marie’s talk show that was on. Marie was great on Dancing with the Stars!! I have been a fan of the Osmond’s for years.I love watching QVC with Marie and her dolls. I only have a few, wish I had more. Keep up dancing!!

  16. Love the Osmonds. Marie is a 1000 times better than horrible Elizabeth on the view. Everyone email the view to get rid of this screeching horror

  17. I think it’s great. She’s warm and funny. And very down to earth.

  18. ICAN’T BELIEVE ALL THE TROUBLE SHE HAS HAD WITH ALL THOSE KIDS SHE HAS THAT SHE CAN’T STAY AT HOME AND TRY TO RAISE THEM LIKE A NORMAL PARENT CAN.
    THEY ARE IN TROUBLE ALL THE TIME AND SHE IS STRUTING HERSELF ALL OVER THE WORLD INSTEAD OF TRYING TO BE A GOOD PARENT. DOESN’T SHE UNDERSTAND YOU DON’T ADOPT ALL THOSE KIDS AND EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO RAISE THEM? JUST SO SHE CAN BRAG I HAVE 8 CHILDREN.HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I HEARD THAT?

  19. I love the Osmonds, too. Been a big fan for years. However, Marie is a little over the top for me! I love seeing her and she has a beautiful voice, I just would like to see her tone it down a bit. I did love Donny and Marie’s talk show. I’d LOVE to see Donny and Marie come back and to do the talk show together again.

  20. Good for her! Marie, do you need a photographer?

  21. So Janette,guess you are not a woman’s libber…maybe not even an Obama supporter. Shame on you, women have come so far only to take several steps backwards with comments like yours. All those liberals out there will really take offense to your “conservative” viewpoint. Hey sister get a clue.

  22. I love Marie, but since she’s changed so much and not for the good, I don’t know if I will be putting much effort into watching her show. Especially if she has that Marcia Wilke person co-producing it. That Woman is obssesed with Marie and she even stalks Marie Fans at Marie’s Events to make sure they don’t get too close to Marie. Marie should have just hired Charlie Manson to Co-produce the show.

  23. To Maria, just because someone has an opinion why do they have to be conservative. Women have come along way, but your comments aren’t anymore brilliant as Janette’s. Sister, you should get the clue!
    Also, to Kirsten, I just wanted to say HELP! You do not even know Elizabeth on the View, and if you were on a show where 3 to 4 women were disagreeing with you, maybe your voice would become loud also. Elizabeth is the ONLY ONE on that show that speaks knowledge and can back up her words with facts instead of saying whatever comes out like Joy, who is the moron on that show. Besides, if you are going to call someone a name like WHORE, maybe you should learn how to spell it. You don’t know whether Marie is liberal like yourself, or conservative like Elizabeth, but since she seems to have it all together I would bet she is conservative.
    You people should think before you just attack someone with evil names like HORROR! And if you are going to maybe you should at least be able to
    do it with dignity and be able to spell when you are doing it.
    Great for Marie!!! Good Luck.

  24. i love Marie i hope she does a good job alone.her and Donny did a great job as they always did iam looking fowad to some great topics .
