Who wants to be a millionaire talk show host? Meredith Vieira does…again!
When we last reported on her potential day time talk show, it was far from a certainty, but now we can confirm as of today that NBC and Vieira will be collaborating in the fall of 2014! We're setting our DVRs right now!
The Meredith Vieira Show (how DO they pick these names? LOL) will film in New York City on a set that actually resembles Meredith's home, with her actual furniture and family photos. Oooh we're lovin' the intimacy!
The show will be multi-segmented and center around everyday people, and of course, have celebrity guests. On her experience hosting, Meredith had this to say in a statement:

Those aren’t bad footsteps to follow in!
After taking over for Katie Couric at the Today Show, Meredith Vieira is doing as her predecessor once again.
While it’s been rumored for a few months, sources are now confirming Meredith will shoot a pilot for a daytime talk show!
However, this time around she’ll not only follow in Katie's footsteps, but she could also be competing with her!
Cat fight, anyone??
The show is allegedly filming with NBC while Katie’s show is on ABC.
Meredith’s new project hasn’t been picked up just yet, but if it is, it will reportedly air in 2014.
Considering Meredith’s past successes, we have no doubt she’ll be back on TV next year!

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:

Except there is one tiny problem…her husband wants to MURDER JASPER!!!!

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.
