Ricki Lake is coming back to daytime TV!

The syndicated The Ricki Lake Show was cleared in fifty percent of test markets across the country and will launch in September 2012.

The show will join newbies like Jeff Probst, Katie (Couric), and Steve Harvey. Ricki will be on Tribune Stations and will replace Anderson on WPIX.

The new incarnation is described as a "fresh, fun, interesting talk that will cover subjects that range from parenting, weight loss, losing love and finding it again.

Ricki Lake, Ricki's first talk show, ran from 1993 to 2004.

We know that this show should be just as great!

    Her last talk show was a trailer park, chair throwing, collection of garbage. Who wants it back?



  2. 2

    She should replace Rosie,
    Ricki is so much better,
    loved her in Hairspray



  3. 3

    over/under 6 months

    Well, the few times I had to do jury duty (before they introduced call-in), no one wanted to watch her show on the TV in the jury room. Was working then so did not watch daytime.

    Oh goody - another talk show - let's see besides all the ones currently on - and that's a lot - next year, we'll have Jeff Probst, katie Couric and now Ricki Lake to add to the many. many others. All talk - all the time - no wonder reading is making a comeback and people are playing with their phone apps more - nothing of interest on tv.

    Her show was awesome! you read my mind with this one, i was just wondering when she'd be back. I use to love her show. Who's next? Richard Bey? The 90's are coming back…

    By next year her first show can be about how she gained all the weight back after DWTS!

    See? Producing these shows is a breeze! :o )

    Nobody's watching those old Ricki Lake, Jenny Jones, Sally Jessie show's anymore that's why they're off the air. Now it's more like The View, Regis and Kelley, Ellen where they talk topics and interview celebrities.

    So I suppose we'll be having a Ricki Lake victory on DWTS? It's all about PROMOTION!
