On Tuesday, December 2, former “All My Children” stars Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) and Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery) are set to reunite as part of a “Soap Opera Showdown” segment of NBCUniversal’s syndicated daytime talker, “The Meredith Vieira Show.” The episode finds Willey surprising Lucci during her showdown with host Meredith Vieira.
Less than two months since its debut, “The Meredith Vieira Show” has been renewed for a second season by the NBC Owned Television Stations.
“We are proud to have Meredith Vieira on our stations for a second season,” said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, in announcing the renewal on Thursday. “Meredith is genuine, smart, warm and funny, and she has our strong support to help her continue to grow her show in this very challenging day part.”
“’The Meredith Vieira Show’ has the full commitment and support of NBCUniversal and we could not be happier to bring it back for a second season,” said Ed Swindler, President NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution and NBC Broadcast Operations. “With its singular host and talented producers, Meredith has grown creatively since launch, continues to gain viewers and we are optimistic it will emerge as a staple in daytime.”
“The Meredith Vieira Show” is currently sold in 98% of the country including the NBC Owned Television Stations.
