Could Paula Abdul thrive as a talk show host?

Paula AbdulPaula Abdul needs some career advice. In the wake of her departure from American Idol, the sometime choreographer/occasional singer and QVC pitch woman has been rumored to be doing all kinds of TV projects. Most have turned out to be rumors and nothing more, but in an interview with TV Guide, Paula said there is a TV dream she covets. Paula Abdul would like to host a TV talk show.

I can't imagine a worse TV vehicle for Paula, especially the kind of talk show she envisions. She said, "It would be a lot of fun variety with a ton of unexpected stuff and tributes to everyday people getting their big chance."

The actress wants The Megan Mullally Show to be mostly unscripted and spontaneous. She also hopes to create a show that is comfortable for both the audience and the guests. The show will also have a band, musical numbers, and skits. Really, it sounds like it's all been done before, but I don't think that matters. The success of these kinds of shows has always depended on the host, and in the case of Ellen, an audience of women who have simultaneous screaming orgasms when you show them a vacuum cleaner. If Mullally can pull it off and be likable and engaging, and I think she can, the show just might work.
