With all the hype about the new talk shows coming to daytime this fall, there hasn't been much promotion for Marie Osmond's new show. With the "Marie!" premiere set for Oct. 1, however, taping started in Van Nuys, Calif., in July and audience tickets are available for upcoming shows.
Bing: More about Marie Osmond
Hallmark created a show page for its upcoming daytime talk show "Marie!" but the page doesn't offer much information about what to expect. On-Camera Audiences, which has "Marie!" seats available, offers the best hint:
"Looking for a fun, entertaining way to spend your day?" reads the "Marie!" ticket request page. "Come and join Marie Osmond as she chats up your favorite celebrities from the worlds of music, film and television. Get great tips from experts on beauty, fashion, home improvement and much more. You never know what surprises are in store at 'Marie,' where there’s plenty of talk and a lot of laughs."
Osmond has been talking up her show on Twitter and generating conversation with fans about guests, but the "Marie!" promotion machine certainly hasn't kicked in. It seems Osmond is letting the talk shows premiering in September duke it out before she arrives on the scene.
Katie Couric, in contrast, is handing out invites to her premiere, while Ricki Lake is getting fans involved by inviting them to her production meetings via youtube and social media sites. Steve Harvey, who kicks off talk show premiere season Sept. 4, dropped his promos early in the game and is also keeping active via social media. He recently posted this chocolate factory disaster shot from an upcoming episode (right). Jeff Probst is also working the social media scene, but not as loudly as the other daytime newcomers. Trisha Goddard has been quietest of all. With no social media presence or promos, Goddard's premiere has been bumped from the first of the month to Sept. 17.
With so many new shows on the horizon, "Ellen" called in celebs to promote its tenth season and "Anderson" is undergoing a complete revamp. It's going to be a very busy September, leading up to an very Osmond October.
"Marie!" premieres Monday, Oct. 1, on Hallmark Channel.

I showed up with my tickets to see her show and after driving 1 1/2 to then stand in line for another 1 hour 15 min. I was told the show was full. I could stand around in 100 degree weather for another 4 hours and they would guarantee a seat. No thanks, even Marie Osmond is not worth the time, cost of fuel and heat stroke to be treated that way. I won't be watching her new show.

I grew up in the Osmond era and always liked Donny & Marie. I don't watch many talk shows, catch Ellen sometimes, but I will tune in a few times to see how she does. Marie is a very friendly, personable, and strong woman who has endured MUCH heartache, and I wish her the BEST!

I know this is a broken record on my part and I like Marie Osmond but why do we have to have more stupid talk shows or reality tv shows or similar new "entertainment" programs (which, by the way are neither new nor entertaining in any way, shape, or form) or yet more syndication of CSI, Two And A Half Men, etc. franchises on the once original programming cable networks like A&E and the History Channel. No wonder so many new comedies and dramas that are tried out in summer never survive. Just because the reality tv, talk show, syndication route may be cheaper doesn't mean it is better. In fact watching and listening to the Emergency Alert System logo is more entertaining than any of that garbage.

Marie has always been and will continue to be the little engine that COULDN'T!! She's a waste of her own time and brings nothing of value to the entertainment industry. Marie Osmond is D-List material at Best.
