Fox To Bring A Priest To TV

father albert coming to fox

This summer, Fox TV stations and Debmar-Mercury will test a one-hour "talker" show with Father Alberto Cutie, who left the Catholic Church to get married and have a family, and is now a priest at an Episcopal Church.

Here's what a statement by Debmar-Mercury had to say about the show:

"Father Albert's wide cross-over appeal, incredible story, encouraging advice, open mind and charismatic personality make him a natural fit for daytime television. We are excited to provide English-language audiences with the opportunity to discover why Father Albert has struck such a chord over the past decade with millions of fans throughout the U.S., Canada, Spain and Latin America."

And here's what a Fox Television Group statement had to say about the program:

"This really completes our roster with Debmar-Mercury: Tyler Perry, Wendy Williams, South Park, Jeremy Kyle and, now, a minister. Seriously, daytime television could use a fresh face and a distinctive voice. We believe we've found one in Father Albert Cutie, whose unique perspective makes him perfect for this role."

We can't say we're surprised that Fox would make a move like this.

Guess we'll see if Father Albert brings in the audiences. We're thinking he probs will.

Would U watch a priest on TV?

Are those Nanny DVDs of yours getting worn out?

If so, you'll have a chance to experience some brand new Fran Drescher on TV this November, with a three-week preview of The Fran Drescher Tawk Show on six Fox-owned stations.

Here's what Fran had to say about it:

"I'm thrilled to be able to bring The Fran Drescher Tawk Show to daytime TV, which fits me hand in glove. It will cover all of my passions, everything from pedicures to politics. America will have a chance to see the real Fran Drescher, beyond The Nanny. I'm the girl next door, a self-made woman who has been to hell and back a few times."

Fox stations that will air the show's three-week preview include NYNW New York, KTTV Los Angeles, WTXF Philadelphia, KSAZ Phoenix, KMSP Minneapolis, and WOFL Orlando.

The show, which will be co-produced with syndicator Debmar-Mercury, will start on the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 26.

Here's Fox TV Stations' senior VP of programming, Frank Cicha, on Drescher's new show:

"Fran is the perfect person to bring a new 'voice,' if you will, to daytime. The female audience knows her, likes her, and we expect the show to bring energy and freshness to these time periods."

Here's Debmar co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein with more on Fran:

"Fran is a natural, multi-faceted talent with an extraordinary life story who is perfect for daytime talk. We are thrilled to partner with Fox to create this launch pad for Fran into the talk show arena, in the hope of gaining a full national syndication rollout in the 2011-12 season."

We're def intrigued by a daytime Fran Drescher talk show.

What do U think? Would U like to see a talk show hosted by Fran?
