After yesterday’s news of a Tori Spelling daytime gabfest in development from ABC, comes word from The New York Post that CBS is developing a daytime talk show to rival ABC Daytime’s The View starring Les Moonves (CBS Prez) wife, Julie Chen. Chen has also been the host of CBS’s hit Reality Show, Big Brother for several seasons. Additional news is that Roseanne star and lesbian mom, Sara Gilbert is also set as one of the c0-hosts.
The article goes on to say that, “Other possible panelists linked to the project are Lisa Rinna and pregnant Real Housewives of New York star Betheny Frankel. A CBS source said, “It’s a daytime panel show to take on The View targeted at women with children and hosted by celebrities, journalists and regular moms. A pilot will be shot in early May.”
