Look Who's Talking in Daytime: Aug. 20 to Aug. 24
Train, Carly Rae Jepsen, Trey Songz and the Wanted rock daytime
With most of the talk shows on hiatus, the hottest thing in daytime the week of Aug. 20 is the ongoing battle between "Today" and "Good Morning America." "Today" fights for viewers with performances from Train, Carly Rae Jepsen, Trey Songz and Il Volo, while also focusing on Back to School all week. "GMA" aims to lure in viewers with a line up of "Dancing with the Stars" favorites and a performance by The Wanted. Jessica Chastain ("The Wanted"), Kristen Bell ("Hit and Run"), Kirk Cameron and Geena Davis are also coming to daytime, along with stars from "Drop Dead Diva," "Top Model," "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" and "Hillbilly Handfishin.'"
Nick Lachey, Joel McHale, Seth Meyers, Bryant Gumbel and Howie Mandel tap in at "Live! With Kelly" to co-host a week that mixes fresh and encore interviews. The shows on break until September are pulling out their big guns for encores. Look for repeats of episodes featuring Tom Selleck, Justin Bieber, Ed Helms, Matt LeBlanc, Sofia Vergara and Adam Lambert; not to mention a few episodes of Hairpiece Theatre on "The Wendy Williams Show."
