Look Who's Talking in Daytime: Aug. 6 to Aug. 10
Rutina Wesley, Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and One Republic
There are several daytime talk shows on hiatus the week of Aug. 3, but there's still plenty of fresh action on the schedule. Stars from "Hope Springs," "Red Hook Summer," "Celeste and Jesse Forever" and "2 Days in New York" are making the rounds -- along with prime-timers from "True Blood," "Boss," "NCIS" "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," "Hell on Wheels" and "The Bates Family: Baby Makes 19." Plus, One Republic performs, and "Today" will be live from London for the Olympics. Carnie Wilson, Tabatha Coffey, Guy Fieri, Gayle King and Pat Harvey tap in as guest co-hosts at "The Talk," while "Live! With Kelly" airs repeats from Hawaii week. "The View" has also gone on hiatus, but has a fresh episode with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones on the schedule.
With most of the talk shows trying to stay in the ratings game during their hiatuses, watch for juicy encore episodes with guests like Kevin Costner, Miranda Lambert, Robin Williams and Selena Gomez. Schedules are subject to change.
