Holly Robinson Peete Launches A New Talk Show + Tracy Morgan Lands An HBO Comedy Special

Watch out Oprah - YBF celeb Holly Robinson Peete is coming to daytime and she's bringing a fresh perspective on motherhood with her.  Plus, perpetually shirtless funny man Tracy Morgan has landed a much coveted one-hour HBO Special. 

Learn more about both shows when you read on...

 

 

According to the Associated Press, this fall, CBS is replacing the soap opera As the World Turns with an hour-long daily talk show with six co-hosts -- all women, all mothers.  

Those hosting the as-yet untitled daytime show include Sharon Osbourne; Sara Gilbert of TV's Roseanne fame; Broadway actress Marissa Jaret
Winokur
; Leah Remini of The King of QueensJulie Chen, who hosts CBS' Big Brother and The Early Show, and our very own Holly Robinson Peete from Celebrity Apprentice.
 

CBS said today that the new show will take a moms' view of entertainment and news stories.  And it looks like it'll be rivaling its fellow woman's roundtable discussion show "The View".

Congrats Holly.  I can't wait to get her fresh perspective.  We need some more YBFness on daytime TV.  

 

  

 

Funny man Tracy Morgan will make his HBO stand-up debut this November in a solo comedy special, called TRACY MORGAN: BLACK AND BLUE

Taping before a live audience at the Apollo Theatre in New York City Sept. 24 and 25, the special will feature the comedian's unpredictable and freewheeling brand of humor in an uncensored setting.

"The special is going to be all the elements: fire, water, earth, air, the comedy bender, the avatar of comedy experience," says Morgan.

 

Morgan's professional profile has been on a steady rise over the years.  One of the stars of the current hit series "30 Rock," Morgan was a cast regular on "Saturday Night Live" from 1996 to 2003. In addition to headlining his own series, "The Tracy Morgan Show," he has starred in such films as Death at a FuneralG-Force, First Sunday, Cop Out, Superhero Movie and The Longest Yard.

Morgan received a 2009 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for 30 Rock, along with three NAACP Image Award nominations for Supporting Actor.

And now with his own HBO Special, Morgan joins an elite list of comedians. 

I can't wait for this special. Tracy cracks me up on 30 Rock

I've been feeling like black comedians lost a platform since Def Jam went off the air.  Maybe a series of one-hour specials is what we need to get some new faces out there.

Actually, the title of this

Actually, the title of this article is VERY misleading!! Holly Robinson-Peete did NOT "launch" this talk show!! The show was created by SARA GILBERT (who used to be on Roseanne), and Sara is also the producer of the show!!

Congrats to Holly on the show--can she start getting better weaves now? Seriously--I like her but the bad hairdos are hard to take. And believe me, the TV industry is just trying to find a black face to fill the void when Oprah leaves. Which is cool-I'm all for more decent black folk on TV--but noone will EVER replace Oprah.
