Kelly Clarkson is shooting a talk show pilot with NBC, will it get picked up?

The 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards

Kelly Clarkson was successful in music, but not so much on the big screen (remember From Justin to Kelly)? She does have a winning presence on the small screen, as a judge on The Voice, so it might not be a surprise that she’s filming a pilot for a talk show.

Broadcasting & Cable reported that the 36-year-old Grammy winner is following in the footsteps of equally affable crooner Harry Connick Jr. and working on her own talk show. (Side note: Harry’s show was canceled in February after two seasons.) Once the pilot is filmed, it will be shopped around in 2019 for a premiere in the fall. Kelly has a talent deal with NBC Entertainment, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll pick it up. If NBC passes, the show could be syndicated or “it could air on another platform or in combination.” In the meantime, Kelly is returning this fall for the 15th season of The Voice, with country singer Thomas Rhett as her adviser.

I like Kelly Clarkson, but I am not a fan of talk shows. If I was going to give any celebrity chat show an hour of my time, it would definitely be RuPaul, but I wish Kelly luck with this new venture. Who is going to give this show a watch?

    Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson are The Voice season 15 guest coaches! I was so happy when the show started casting two female guest coaches to make the panel two men and two women.

      I like both of them. I only started watching again because Kelly was added to the show.
      I’m sad to hear Alicia won’t be on though, I think she did a great job, but apparently she’s working on a new album.
      I wish they’d get rid of Blake. He’s awful.

      Also, I think Kelly is delightful, but I can’t imagine anyone launching a talk show nowadays, they rarely seem to catch on. But I guess with her deal, why not try?

        Alicia had such a lovely way with words. She addressed each contestant so personally and eloquently. I don’t know much about Hudson. I skipped the year she was on with Miley altogether.

      • lucy2 says:

        Alicia really has a lovely soul, doesn’t she? I felt like she truly cared, and she knows what she’s talking about.

  2. LadyT says:

    I find her so genuine and likeable. I’d give it a try.

    ohmygod this woman needs better people to dress/style etc like she’s a mess. I could do a better job with a stuff from H&M.. Do like her music tho!

  4. Linda says:

    Dont like her. Find her very annoying. I also find Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood very annoying. I do like country music.

  5. vesper says:

    Please gawd no! She’s annoying and not fun to look at. I know that is mean, but come on people what else is the purpose of television. Stick to music Kelly. Stay in your lane.

    That busy blue dress is unfortunate. Who’s idea was her to wear that? As for the talk show, unless she’s going to do a Mike Douglas type talk show (yeah I’m old enough to remember that one) I’m not interested.
