I look forward to the day when I get that call from Hollywood saying, "Myron. We'd like to give you your own daytime talk show! We would also like to pay you a truckload of money to do it!" However, until that time comes, I guess I will settle for checking out the daytime TV talk show hosts who have already gotten that call.
I'm especially excited about the new Steve Harvey daytime show simply titled "Steve Harvey." In addition to his morning radio show and his hosting duties on "Family Feud," Harvey is about to conquer daytime television as well. His new show will focus on real topics such as marriage, family, dating, finance and workplace issues.
And, of course, he will address these topics as only Harvey knows. That means it will have no choice but to be funny.
The show will premiere locally Sept. 4, on Fox 13, WHBQ weekdays at noon. I guess I will have to set my DVR.
Meanwhile, "The Wendy Williams Show" will be getting a makeover this season, with some big changes to her set design. And if you liked the "Hot Topics" segment, it will be extended to a whopping 18 minutes.
We can also expect to see her in full High Definition. Even her wardrobe will be changing just a bit. Williams, who quips that she is ten times thinner these days from hitting the gym, will be wearing more pencil skirts and blue jeans, along with her signature wigs.
The current season of her show starts on Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. on Fox 13 WHBQ as well. I won't have to set my DVR for this one. The show repeats each night on BET.
The Universoul Circus returns to Memphis on Aug. 28 through Sept. 3 at the Hickory Ridge Mall. If you're familiar with the Universoul Circus, you know that this particular circus is like no other. Bicycle girls, motorcycle daredevils and contortionists are just a few of the acts you'll see, along with elephants, tigers and even trick dogs.
