Meredith Vieira Lands Syndicated Daytime Show

'The Meredith Vieira Show' slated for fall 2014

Meredith Vieira is heading back to daytime with “The Meredith Vieira Show,” a syndicated program to be produced and distributed by NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution. NBCU has slated the skein for fall 2014.

The daily, multi-seg show will be based in Gotham and taped on a set that resembles Vieira’s home. Hourlong program will feature huma- interest stories, lifestyle segments and sit-downs with celebs along with everyday people.

“All of us at NBCU are so excited about this new show with Meredith,” said Ted Harbert chairman of NBC Broadcasting. “She creates an instant connection with audiences with her smart, quick-witted and down-to-earth style. This entertaining and substantive show will be a great way to reach her loyal daytime fans as well as new ones who will discover why Meredith is one of America’s most loved television personalities.”

Vieira defined herself in the daytime space as one of the original co-hosts on ABC’s “The View” and co-anchor on NBC’s “Today,” alongside Matt Lauer. The journo is also no stranger to the syndie space, having hosted the syndicated version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” for over a decade, stepping down from her hosting duties late last year.

“As a journalist on Today’ and ’60 Minutes,’ I learned how to really listen to people and help give them a voice. On ‘The View,’ I unleashed my own opinionated self and discovered the empowerment that comes with sometimes heated, but always respectful, discussion. And on ‘Millionaire,’ I relished the joy of changing people’s lives while having pure fun,” Vieira said. “All of these experiences, along with being a wife and mom, have led me here because they all share one common denominator… this fundamental need we have to connect with and find inspiration in each other.”

Vieira has maintained a reduced role with the Peacock since her tenure on “Today,” contributing to “Dateline” along with “Rock Center With Brian Williams.” She has also subbed in on “Today’s” fourth hour for Kathie Lee Gifford.
