New show, here's the scoop:

The Bonnie Hunt Show, produced by Telepictures and Warner Bros. will premiere on September 8. You might remember Bonnie from such films as The Green Mile, Dave, Rain Man, Jumanji, Jerry Maguire, and Cheaper By The Dozen as well as her hit ABC sitcom, Life With Bonnie. She will be seated behind a desk and feature two celebrities a day as well as other guests, from everyday people to experts. She is a premiere talent who’s incredibly quick, funny and relatable. Though she’s worked with nearly every big name in Hollywood, she’s still “your next door neighbor with a first-class talk show”. BONNIE show will be shot in front of an audience, live-to-tape to air the following day. The show tapes Monday-Wednesday at 4pm and Thursday at 2pm and 6pm at The Culver Studios. BONNIE was one of the fastest programs to clear and has been sold in 97% of the country. We will air at 2pm in New York and 12PM in Los Angeles on NBC.
