Wonder what Babs has to say about this!
Now that she's exiting Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Meredith Vieira is said to be in talks for a new daytime show scheduled to air "no sooner than September 2014."
And even though desperately cling to anonymity for the sake of the project's birth, the signs are all there! After all, why else would she quit an easy moneymaker like Millionaire?
She did say she was about to embark on a "new adventure" with NBC.
The insiders think she could end up in the same time-slot as The View — the daytime juggernaut she called home for nine years before leaving to do Today.
Totally awkward!!! But we kinda love it. Ha!
Of course, it could all end up going down a different road as sources also say they're eying the same slot as The Jeff Probst Show.
Hmm… when would U watch her?? Morning or Afternoon??

Meredith Vieira is leaving the syndicated version of long-running show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? after 11 years as host and two Daytime Emmy awards.
Meredith was first offered the gig by ABC to sweeten her contract deal as co-host of The View.
The decision came at the end of her contract as she has decided to move on to other projects.
Millionaire is already is search of someone to fill her position!!
This marks the end of an era in television!!!
Who do YOU think would make a good replacement?!

Meredith Vieira is most well known for her time on The View and The Today Show, as well even hosting the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, but soon enough, she'll be showing the daytime TV world exactly what she's made of…as a PROSTITUTE!
No, we're not kidding!
Those of you who follow General Hospital may recall that around ten years ago, the journalist made her first appearance on the ABC soap as Bree Flanders, a madam running an upscale call-girl business, and on December 14th, she'll be making her long-awaited return!
Only this time, she's not selling seXXXy timez!
As she explains:

Someone's been watching that 'Cigar Store Indian' episode of Seinfeld too many times!
Matt Lauer, who is always the classiest of gentlemen (Ha!), was the butt of an underwear-themed joke on the Today show this morning, when Meredith Vieira gifted him a pair of Stella McCartney ladies underwear.
In response, Matt essentially calls Meredith a slut, and when she tries to take the underwear back, he calls her a VERY inappropriate phrase (above).
Sexist commentary aside, way to use an ignorant, completely archaic, and utterly racist term Matt Lauer. Jerry Seinfeld making light of the phrase in the 90s doesn't make it cute…
And this is a world-travelled journalist? Awesome.

The honeymoon is officially over for Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie!
By most accounts, NBC's coverage of the outstanding 2012 Olympic games in London is vastly inferior to, say, watching an infected wound fester.
The ratings for pre and post-event coverage are disappointingly low.
We don't know whether to blame tape delays, the lingering Ann Curry hangover, or anchor performance issues!
We do know the network shipped in veteran anchor Hoda Kotb because they are severely displeased!
One insider revealed:

Oh no! But who else will
put up co-host with Kathie Lee on the fourth hour NOW?!
In light of Ann Curry's inevitable axing from The Today Show, producers have already tried to get Meredith Vieira back in the old post and failed, and despite offering third-hour host Savannah Guthrie the position, we're now hearing that Hoda Kotb is now getting quite a bit of buzz as the potential replacement!
