Ricki Lake Coming Back With New Talk Show??

Ricki Lake Returns In 2012 Possibly

2012 could be a big year. We've go the elections, the end of the world, The Avengers, and possibly a new Ricki Lake talk show!!

How fab would that be?!

Ricki has not been quiet about whether or not she'd like to return to talk, basically letting the world know during every appearance she makes.

Well the distributors have heard, and because that will be a year after Oprah abandons her post, everyone is looking for a new show to pick up all those viewers!

Here's what's going down:

Since then, things have progressed, with Twentieth, CBS and NBC all expressing interest in distributing such a show. Twentieth has even gone so far as to host at least one meeting between Lake and a potential broadcast client.

One factor that could be delaying a decision by NBC and CBS on Lake is whether or not Katie Couric is going to shop a talk show for 2012, with neither syndicator wanting to tie up resources before knowing what Couric's decision will be and with whom she will sign. Couric's contract with CBS News — currently worth $15 million annually — expires at the end of May.

We guess it would have to do a lot with content and what kind of show Ricki wants to do, but we feel like a Ricki talk show would be way more entertaining than a Katie Couric talk show!

But who knows, maybe Couric has his wild side we've never seen before while she's reporting the news! It's possible!

Good luck Ricki, it'd be great to have you back!

Katie, show us your crazy side!

How do U feel about a Ricki Lake comeback??

    Oh i would LOVE to see Ricki come back with a new talk show! Her show was so great back in the day and there's no other talk show out there now with the format of her old show.

    woohoo!! I LOVEEEE Ricki Lake.. Id love to see her come back.. and Jenny Jones too!! Fun show premises about "Man or woman" "secret crushes revealed" and all the makeover shows!! SO muchhhhh more entertaining then a buncha talk shows about fashion and celebrity interviews. I am so sick of hearing celebrities talk and self promote. The shows were uplifting- yes maybe a bit trashy but still they were light and airy not stuffy and pretentious!

    Couric would be an epic fail. More than half the country would purposely not watch that rabid one-sided attack dog.

    Nooooo. Her 15 seconds are over. Her talk show was awful. She's much better as an actress.
