Jennifer Hudson’s Daytime talk show is coming this fall. The Jennifer Hudson Show will launch on Fox television stations. With Ellen DeGeneres ending her two-decade talk show career, Hudson’s new show is set to become a flagship IP for Warner Bros. Studios.

The daytime talk show space continues to be crowded. Hudson will join his colleague american idol alum Kelly Clarkson, as well as Nick Cannon and Sherri Shepherd in the daytime genre.

The Jennifer Hudson Show comes from Telepictures productions, the same production company behind The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The Oscar-winning actress’ test show was filmed last fall on the Ellen arrange. Warner Bros Studios is betting big on the singer because the same producers and show-runner of Ellen helped create Hudson’s new show and pitched it to other stations.

Hudson’s new show is getting a major boost as it is also set to launch on Hearst Television. Additional station groups will carry The Jennifer Hudson Showrepresenting more than 60% of the country.

The Grammy winner has been in the entertainment industry for almost 20 years. Now she is ready to show another side that the public loves. The show’s format is being kept under wraps, but Hudson is sure to introduce something new to daytime television, much like how Clarkson brought us his famous Kellyoke.

Jennifer Hudson’s Daytime Talk Show

Hudson is used to standing out in competitions. The singer dominated during her time on american idol. When it was time for her to shine in the race for the Best Supporting Actress Oscars in 2007, she came out on top. Hudson now enters a new competition.

The world of daytime television is tough. Most new shows end after two seasons. It’s not uncommon for producers to hunt for the next big hit once a staple like DeGeneres has finished its run. We saw it when Oprah Winfrey decided to end her popular talk show.

As Clarkson’s show takes over DeGeneres’ time slot, news of Hudson’s show is backed by so many who brought us Ellenseems to indicate both Idol the stars will clash.
