Talk-show tango Sept. 7-11: stay tuned

In television on 09/07/2009 at 5:11 am

Hello chickens and happy Labour Day to you. I’ll be fresh from a few days off and back at the laptop midafternoon to flesh out what I’m expecting to be an action-packed roster, with most of the daytime shows finally back from summer vacation (nice work if you can get it). But if you can’t wait and if the early details I’ve sketched in below are not enough to hold you, just click on the show title for details on the show’s homepages.

Update: Okay so I’ve filled in most of the blanks (No Jon Stewart? No Colbert?) and the biggest trend I see is Rod Blagojevich. Oy. Some book to promote, it appears. But it’ll be easy to avoid him because there are  many great choices on all days and nights. You look now.
