And we thought Lara Spencer had the job in the bag!

According to sources, CBS execs are looking at all possible candidates to replace the Entertainment Tonight hosting spot that Mary Hart held for 29 years.

The Insider's Lara Spencer was the obvious choice, but according to an insider, Maria Menounos could be the real deal since she "has had exclusive interviews with President Obama and the first family before any other journalist. She's also has interviewed the likes of Oprah, Jennifer Lopez and Lindsay Lohan, which were quite provocative and intense interviews."

Even though Maria is currently a correspondent on three different NBC shows, she's become a hot commodity and it "may turn into quite the bidding war."

Who do U want to see as the new ET host??

    Maria talks too loud.



  2. 2

    I'd rather see Maria Lara Spencer sucks



  3. 3

    Samantha Harris has been doing it so long anyway so why not her??



  4. 4

    Nancy O'Dell!



  5. 5

    I'd rather have Maria on there then Lara. Ugh Lara just annoys me on that show, but she is funny when she's on Kathy's My Life On the D List she should totally do room makeovers for her full time job.



  6. 6

    Hahaha. Does anyone else remember when she was on Channel One?

    Access Hollywood is really the only one worth watching anymore (even though Billy Bush is the antichrist). Extra has basically become the 'let's talk about Mario Lopez show'.

    I've always felt Maria was pretty enough to be an actress and I know she has acted a bit but feel she should go that route. Why would Lara Spencer want to leave "The Insider" when that is her show?



  8. 8

    Please no.

    Re: sparkys nemesis – I agree 100% she is loud

    Re: Christopher Craigman – sorry Nancy O'Dell's voice sounds like a machine gun



  11. 11

    Ugh really. Maria is so annoying to look at, and listen to.



  12. 12

    why does mary have to leave???



  13. 13

    Maria is really annoying and way too full of herself.



  14. 14

    carrot-top of course!

    Lara is so fake and insincere.

    Maria I think is a lot more professional in her delivery.



  16. 16

    I like Maria!



  17. 17

    Mary Hart needs to be wheeled into a nursing home and put out to pasture; how many face lifts & lipos can a woman have?



  18. 18

    I like Maria. Lara has gone the Jerry Springer route with her show. I don't even watch it. To geared toward teh dumb and they talk and scream too loud on the show.



  19. 19

    Well if she's interviewed LL than she must have all the qualifications she needs then. That would be every journalist's dream interview, wouldn't it?



  20. 20

    Go Medford, MA!



  21. 21

    I like both. How about a co-host gig? Maria can bring in the C-list. Lara can get some age appropriate clothing and stop wearing tank dresses that are not that appealing, and nobody can afford. Before the new show, she needs to realize that women over 19 shouldn't wear sleeveless 12 months a year.



  22. 22

    I THOUGHT IT WAS A DONE DEAL THAT LARA SPENSER WAS GOING TO BE HER REPLACEMENT. THAT'S WHY THEY MADE LARA QUIT YELLING ON THE INSIDER AND START TALKING LIKE A REGULAR PERSON.



  23. 23

    Maria, hands down.



  24. 24

    Lara comes off fake! Maria is definitely the better choice and has a much better personality. Plus, she's younger and will be around longer. Maria is so cute and has a great personality.



  25. 25

    maria is gorgeous!



  26. 26

    Mary Hart is retiring ? What - all her botox is melting ? !



  27. 27

    nancy o'dell or even lara spencer would be better than this narcisist.

    Maria of course,



  29. 29

    MARIA IS A DIPSHIT……I WONT WATCH HER.



  30. 30

    Lara Spencer is a better choice.



  31. 31

    Why does Mary Hart have to leave in her 29th year on ET? They can't keep her there for one more year to celebrate 30 years on the air? This is discrimination towards older women. They keep the men on T.V. forever. Look at Larry King!



  32. 32

    dont watch that anyway, dont care!



  33. 33

    maria is f-ing annoying…



  34. 34

    Re: yovovi

    Agreed–I will QUIT watching and so will everyone I know if that self-obsessed Maria gets the job. She has absolutely NO redeeming skills, and as for journalistic qualifications, she has none–she's just a talking head who just reads from what other, more talented people write for her. She is certainly not deserving of any kind of 'bidding war'. Bleh!!



  35. 35

    Lara is such a poseur. very unnatural and trying to be as beautiful as those around her. she needs to stick to the tomboyish reporter she once was and give up the attempt of being glamorous—too much surgery…fake. she was better as a side kick kid..she is not glamorous and the more she tries to be the more fake she seems.
    maria, on the other hand is very comfortable in her natural beauty and puts her interviewees at ease. i can watch her all day long. i respect her and appreciate her beauty… she is comfortable in her own skin, not manufactured…lara should go back to road show…this is right up her alley



  36. 36

    no one could replace Mary Hart!



  37. 37

    I thought they forced Mary to retire so they could give ET to Lara Spencer. I also heard that Lara said she was the host of ET on the Emmy red carpet. They probably put this story out there to make it look like Mary wasn't forced out.



  38. 38

    i love her. She used to be a fat chick. and look at her. :) ))



  39. 39

    I think Samantha Harris would be a better choice. Promote within.



  40. 40

    Menounos is pure trash, Samantha Harris has what Menounos lacks, CLASS!

    Re: ClaudiaK – haha hello fatty, are you jealous much ?

    Pam's Used Silicon Breasts @ #17 - So glad I'm not YOUR mother. Mary Hart is almost the Carson of Hollywood Entertainment shows. She's an original, and has done Entertainment Tonight since 1982. Fifty-nine year olds mostly have amazing minds along with wisdom, so if you so cavalierly pasture the experienced people, you deserve where you end up. Nursing home? Probably not for another 25 years for her at least. Look at Larry King. She probably will retire, so she can travel the planet if she wants to, and happily get chubby.



  43. 43

    Why not cancel the show? Isn't it time for some of the trash come to an end? There's still too many shows out there, it won't be missed.

    what about Meagan Alexander from Inside Edition? she's fun!
