Bravo has tapped an outspoken comedian for a weekly talk show, according to the Associated Press. The cable network plans to debut “Kathy,” starring Kathy Griffin, in the spring, the story reports.
According to the report: “Bravo promised that ‘this will be the destination to get Griffin’s thoughts on everything pop culture as she rants on the week’s biggest headlines and tabloid gossip.’ The show will also feature stand-up comedy, celebrity interviews and taped segments.”
The network is also in talks with Jenny McCarthy about a talk show, reports the New York Post.
McCarthy, 39, made a pilot last year at NBC’s Connecticut studios, where "Maury" and "Jerry Springer" are taped, the story points out.
