For May sweeps, Katie Couric is taking her daytime talk show to Hollywood. Couric will host her eponymous syndicated program from the set of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” at the El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
Disney, which produces Couric’s talk show and airs Kimmel’s program, also owns the El Capitan.
As in New York, there will be a live audience, with Couric also visiting Hollywood landmarks. Guests will include Kimmel (of course) as well as fellow Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”), musician Will.i.am and actress Zooey Deschanel.
Also for May sweeps, CBS’ daytime talker “The Talk” will return to New York City for the second time this season. Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler will host from the CBS Broadcast Center May 13-17. Guests include “NCIS” stars Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly, as well as “How I Met Your Mother”‘s Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders.
