Kelly Clarkson Talk Show a Go at NBC - Will It Replace Days of Our Lives?

at . Comments

Kelly Clarkson's next TV gig will give fans a lot to talk about. 

The popular singer has landed her own talk show at NBC, and it is slated for a fall 2019 rollout. 

Thus far, it has been sold to 11 NBC-owned affiliates across the country and will air weekdays in those markets.

Clarkson revealed the first details of her talk show on The Tonight Show to host Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night.

"Well, I’m doing this to kind of prep for my talk show that’s going to be next year. We’re doing a live segment during my show,” Kelly revealed to Jimmy on-air of how her upcoming tour will tie into the show.

“So every night on tour, we’re going live online.” Kelly added that she is going in this direction for the “people that can’t come out.”

With that, Jimmy revealed that he was surprised Clarkson was being so open about the show because it was yet to be confirmed by NBC. 

Kelly laughed it off, confirming that the talk show's existence has "been leaked."

This was very likely in reference to reports that recently revealed she filmed a pilot with Chloe Grace Moretz, Terry Crews, and Josh Groban in Los Angeles. 

“At the pilot, I got, you know, people to sing with me and do little skits. So it’s very musical as well. It would be weird if it wasn’t,” Kelly told Jimmy of the pilot.

But where will NBC be placing the series?

“Yeah, it’s daytime. We’re on right before Ellen [DeGeneres],” Kelly said.

Kelly then went on to say how the show will be set up, and it sounds like her touring band will play a big part in all of the fun. 

“That’s the cool thing. My people on tour. Because my show is actually going to be a little different than you know, anything that’s been on,” Kelly told Jimmy.

“Just because I’m still touring, I’m still — you know what I’m saying? It’s kind of one of those things where my band is on the road with me, or they’re on the show with me.”

Kelly continued, “We sing every day on the show and do like this fan request thing, it’s fun.”

It sounds like a fun show, but what might its existence mean for another show on NBC's daytime roster?

The most likely scenario here is that the Peacock network finally decides it's time to rest Days of Our Lives

The long-running soap has been on the air since 1965 and is only renewed through next summer. 

Wouldn't that mean it's a likely candidate for the chop ahead of Kelly's show hitting the air?

Despite diminished ratings, Days is still very popular with viewers, but it wouldn't be all that surprising if it was nixed in favor of a younger and cheaper option. 

What are your thoughts on this, TV Fanatics?

With Kelly in, does it mean Days of Our Lives is out?
