Look Who's Talking in Daytime: Sept. 17 to Sept. 21
Mitt Romney, Michelle Obama, Emmy talk, prime-time premieres and rocking performers
The heavy talk show competition means another round of A-list star and rockers coming to daytime the week of Sept. 17, not to mention Mitt Romney and his wife Ann, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Prince, Wyclef Jean, Fergie, Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kellie Pickler, Clint Eastwood, Ricky Gervais, Paul Rudd, Ed Asner, Emma Watson and "50 Shades of Gray" scribe E.L. James are coming to chat. Jimmy Kimmel talks Emmys, and prime-time stars are chatting up the returns of "Homeland," "The Good Wife," "Scandal," "Boss," "Parks and Recreation," "Two and a Half Men," "Up All Night," "Raising Hope," "Dancing with the Stars," "The Amazing Race" and "Flipping Out." Plus, look for scoop on new series from Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project"), Lucy Liu ("Elementary"), Michael Chiklis and Dennis Quaid ("Vegas"), Michael Urie and David Krumholtz ("Partners") and Janet Montgomery ("Made In Jersey"). The Killers, Carly Rae Jepsen, Neon Trees, Nelly Furtado, Richie Sambora, Josh Turner, Psy, Easton Corbin and Vanilla Ice perform.
"The Rachael Ray Show" premieres a new studio this week, while Trisha Goddard enters the fray Monday. The UK's "Queen of Talk" will kick off her new show "Trisha" with an episode about abusive men, followed by a week that takes on sex, lies and family secrets; troubled teen mothers; sexy job feuds; and adult children seeking paternity answers.
While "Katie" premiered with a bang, "The Jeff Probst Show" isn't getting as much attention. Those looking for a daytime pick up, however, might want to give the uber positive "Survivor" host a chance.
"Steve Harvey" is also performing well in the ratings. Harvey and "The Ricki Lake Show" aren't about celebrity name-dropping, so they don't make this list, but they do have plenty to talk about. Marie Osmond joins the lineup Oct. 1.
