Woo! Smart! A great fit for her!
It seems like all the cable outlets are snagging up funny, funny ladies to start their own talk shows. First Bravo signs Kathy Griffin, now VH1 has announced that they are welcoming Jenny McCarthy back into the fold to develop her own sassy, fun sho!
Set to premiere in late summer or fall, The Jenny McCarthy Show would take on relevant pop culture stories with guest panelists and Jenny would even interview a celebrity or two! VH1’s EVP of original programming and production Jeff Olde released a formal statement about the news, sharing his and the networks excitement about having the funky blonde back on the network. He says:
“We wanted to get back in the game and create a signature show that really hit that female funny sweet spot, and Jenny was always on the top of our list because our audience grew up with Jenny.”
For those of you who did not grow up in the 90s, Jenny was a co-host on the MTV dating show Singled Out. (Watch it on YouTube. It was an awesome show! Also, search for a clip of Eric Matthews on the show. Yeah, we remember that!)
A BIG congrats to Jenny on this insanely wonderful opportunity! We have a feeling she is going to shine so bright, they'll signed her up for another season right after the pilot episode! Calling it!
