American talk show host and Emmy-winning TV journalist and personality Meredith Vieira triumphantly makes her way to daytime with The Meredith Vieira Show on SABC3 Mondays to Fridays at 14:00 from 20 March, 2015
Meredith brings her indisputable television experience along with a rare combination of humor, warmth, and intelligence. The show aims to brighten people’s days with inspirational stories, celebrity sketches, interviews and informational pieces, featuring music from a live house band and original digital shorts. Meredith’s ability to connect with both viewers and guests in all walks of life brings a unique authenticity and compassion to daytime television.
Daytime Emmy winner Meredith Vieira has hosted a number of shows in her TV career – The View, The Today Show and Who Wants to be a Millionaire among the most notable but she’s never had her own talk show … until now.
The self-titled, daily programme adds some twists to the typical daytime talk format. The show’s set at 30 Rockefeller Center in New York resembles Vieira’s home – even down to her pet-ravaged furniture and features staples usually seen on late-night shows: a house band, led by Everett Bradley of the E Street Band, and a sidekick, Jon Harris, who also doubles as the show’s announcer. Elements that daytime viewers are used to include a mix of human-interest stories – featuring everyday people and celebrity guests and lifestyle segments that highlight Vieira’s point of view.
Don’t miss The Meredith Vieira Show as it offers an exceptional mix of fun, along with feel-good human interest stories every Monday – Friday at 2pm on SABC3.
