Bonnie Hunt gets her own talk show
I've been wondering when actress Bonnie Hunt was going to return to television. She's had several short-lived sitcoms (all rather good and different - Grand, The Bonnie Hunt Show, Life with Bonnie, The Building) and beyond her movie work (Cars, Cheaper By The Dozen) I heard she had also signed a deal to create another comedy show.
But that's not going to happen anytime soon, because Hunt has just signed a two-year deal for her own talk daytime talk show. The show will premiere in syndication in the fall of 2008 on NBC stations.
I think this is fantastic news. I mean, Bonnie Hunt talking to me through my television every single day? Excellent. Now all I have to do is try to get Amy Sedaris to do a daily show, maybe immediately following Bonnie's show, so I can have some Super Awesome Bonnie and Amy Power Block to watch every day.
The only thing that bothers me is that the show is going to include health tips and other features for women. Ugh. Why can't she just do a straight variety/comedy/music show? We don't need another show telling us how to clean our closets, find a mate, and make the perfect risotto.
