DAYTIME TV'S NEW SEASON BRINGS CHANGES
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Many syndicated daytime shows kicked off their new seasons on Monday, September 13. Here's what you can expect from some of your favorite shows:
Family Feud - Hosts for this old school game show never seem to stick around for more than four years. John O'Hurley has been replaced with comedian Steve Harvey. The Feud also has a new set and is now being taped at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Producers are moved the show from Los Angeles, hoping it would be easier to fill the audience in Orlando.
Extra - The newsmagazine turned entertainment show has ditched their set and is now broadcasting from The Grove in Hollywood. The Grove is a popular shopping and dining spot for celebs in the city. The show is also now focusing on coast-to-coast coverage, with correspondents in Las Vegas, New York City and South Beach in Miami checking in each day. The show also has new graphics this season.
Jerry Springer - The king of tabloid tv returns for his 20th season. No major changes to the show, since it got new graphics and a tweaked set last year.

Steve Wilkos - Jerry Springer's former head of security is back for his fourth season. No changes to his show. Last season, the show moved to CT and got a brand new set.
Judge Joe Brown - A familiar face is missing from the cast of Judge Joe Brown this season. Court reporter Jacque Kessler has been replaced with former Fox Sports reporter, Jeanne Zelasko.
Judge Judy - No changes for the queen of court's show. JJ could really use a new set and graphics. The set has been the sam since the show's launch. The graphics and open have been the same for five seasons.
Oprah Winfrey - The queen of talk is back for her 25th and final season. Check out the Daily Edition's story on her premiere.

As far as I'm concerned, Jacque Kessler was the (beautiful) FACE of the Judge Joe Brown program. She also provided intelligent and humorous synopses that added greatly to the show's appeal and kept it from taking itself too seriously.
Her replacement--most likely a financially-motivated misjudgement--will undoubtedly result in a loss of viewership. I, for one, will be voting with my clicking finger!
