Megan Mullally Takes On Daytime TV

Posted by Rhys Alexander Categories: Talk Shows, NBC, Talent,

DescriptionFan favorite Megan Mullally of the soon to be retired Will & Grace is moving on with her career: she’ll be hosting her own television talk show. No doubt fans will be thrilled, but we have to wonder - will she be using the same voice as she did on Will & Grace? Because talk shows require a lot of well, talking, and that voice is perhaps appreciated more in smaller doses.

Megan Mullally will draw on the talk show hosts she watched as a youngster when the Will & Grace star launches her own contender in the fall. “I want it to be a ‘best of talk shows’ talk show,” she said. “I’ve always been a big fan of talk shows, ever since I was a kid—(Johnny) Carson, Merv (Griffin) and Mike (Douglas). I think it’s cool to pull elements from all the best shows.”

The Megan Mullally Show will include comedic and musical elements, skits, field segments, and a band, Mullally said. But one thing it won’t have in common with many talk shows of its ilk is that she won’t be seated behind a desk. Although the actual set is still being worked out, Mullally said she’s aiming for something that’s “fresh and different.”

Will Megan survive the talk show curse cancellation most actors-turned-hosts experience? What do you think? Will you be tuning in?
