Station groups including the Fox Television Stations are climbing on board for the fall launch of NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution’s “Crazy Talk.” TVNewsCheck reports that clearances for the syndicated talk show have hit 80% of U.S. TV homes.
Along with the Fox O&Os, stations from Sinclear, Hearst, Meredith, Raycom and Cox, among others, have signed on. The program will be co-hosted by Tanisha Thomas, known for the reality show “Bad Girls Club,” and Ben Aaron, a contributor to New York’s WNBC-TV.
The show will offer clips and commentary based on an exploration of what’s happening on other talk shows.
In a statement, Ed Swindler, president of NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution and NBC Broadcast Operations, said: “’Crazy Talk’ is a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud comedic show which raises an eyebrow on the most outlandish and sometimes bizarre moments across the rapidly growing reality television landscape. Our hosts will infuse a comical spin on these moments to create fantastic fodder for a daily show.”
Paul Faulhaber of “Maury” is executive producer.
