When the timer dings in September and ‘As the World Turns‘ is officially done, CBS has at least three new programs in the running to scrub in as a replacement for the soap.
(Like that? Soap and cooking puns. That is why I am here.)
The latest entry in the race to seize ‘ATWT’s daytime slot is a cooking-themed game show hosted by (Bam!) Emeril Lagasse.
As reported by Deadline.com, the show would be taped in front of a studio audience and feature contestants preparing dishes under Emeril’s guidance.
Also in development as possible ‘ATWT’ successors are a Mommy-centric talk show fronted by Sara Gilbert (‘Roseanne’) and Julie Chen (‘Big Brother’) and ‘Pyramid,’ which is a reboot of one of my fave retro game shows.
An Emeril cooking-slash-game show….
A ‘View’-like talker…
The new ‘Pyramid…
