Stephanie Miller taped her final talkshow Dec. 8 – a move that had been expected (Variety, Dec. 4-10) – but in an unusual twist, syndicator Buena Vista TV has scheduled four as yet unnamed guest hosts Tuesday-Friday this week to fill out its first run commitment of the show to stations. Reruns will air for the next month, with the final episode of the canceled low-rated latenight talker (it averaged a 1.4 season-to-date) set Jan. 20.

A BVTV spokeswoman declined to comment on rumors that Danny Bonaduce would be one of the fill-ins, or may do the entire week. There has been speculation the Disney syndie subsid has been exploring latenight options for the daytime talkshow host.
