The race is on among daytime talkshows for attention-grabbing guests during the upcoming November sweeps. Oprah Winfrey has bagged a Beatle — Paul McCartney is set to do an hour with the reigning queen of talk to promote his new EMI Classics release, “Standing Stone.”
Rosie O’Donnell will host a monthlong salute to Broadway, sort of. Cast members from such shows as “Grease,” “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” and “Les Miserables” will sing “Rosie”-themed parodies of their signature tunes.
Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford are Hawaii-bound for four days next month. “Live with Regis & Kathie Lee’s” guest list for November also includes Pamela Lee, Cindy Crawford, Michael Bolton and Wynonna.
