A daily talk show is switching to a live format and bringing aboard a number of personalities as recurring guests. “The Meredith Vieira Show” announced the changes to the syndicated program’s format in advance of its season-two premiere Sept. 8.
Joining the show as regular contributors are ‘NSYNC member and host of “Dirty Pop” on Sirius XM Lance Bass; TV host, style expert and founder of TheLVGuide.com Lilliana Vazquez; “Funny Girls” co-star Yamaneika Saunders; and co-host of the digital series “Parental Guidance” Megan Colarossi.
Rich Sirop, Executive Producer, says in the announcement: “Meredith is an incredible broadcaster who is meant to be on live television. She’s so excited to welcome such a funny, smart and opinionated group of people to the show. Having them with her every day will really allow us to dig in on the issues our viewers care about most. At the end of the day we want the audience to feel like they are part of the conversation.”
The nationally syndicated daytime talk show, which tapes in front of a live studio audience at Rockefeller Center in New York City, is produced and distributed in the U.S. by NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution.
