I gave it a shot, watching about 3 episodes, but just couldn't stick with it. I suppose I'm not in its target audience.

But if you are, and/or you loved it, this should please you.

It's going to be an interesting, crowded fall 2013 in terms of daytime talkshows, when Queen Latifah launches her own, co-produced by Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment. Assuming Trisha Goddard's show is renewed for a second season as well, there'll be a handful of black daytime talkshow hosts during the 2013/2014 season.
