Harry Connick Jr. Daytime Talk Show

Harry Connick Jr. to Host Syndicated Daytime Talk/Variety Show

American Idol hasn’t even begun its final season yet, but judge Harry Connick Jr. has already lined up his next TV gig.

The musician/actor will host Harry, a syndicated daytime talk/variety show to air on Fox-owned stations around the country, NBCUniversal Domestic Television Distribution (which will produce the series) announced Tuesday.

Harry will include comedic man-on-the-street interviews, live musical performances and parodies, stunts and audience-participation bits.

Justin and Eric Stangel (Late Show with David Letterman) will executive-produce alongside Connick and his frequent collaborator, Ann Marie Wilkins.

Harry will premiere in Fall 2016.

In addition to serving as an Idol judge for the past several seasons, Connick’s TV credits include recurring roles on Will & Grace and Law & Order: SVU.

Let us know in the comments: Will you tune in to Harry?

    Yes! I wouldn’t miss it! I was able to be part of the pilot episode filmed in June and it was so much fun! I think it’s a great addition to daytime TV.

    OMG what are these TV executives thinking? He’s almost OK on Idol but a talk show? I’d rather watch rats fight over a slice of subway pizza.

    I love Harry Connick, Jr. I have watched the talk show several times. I tried to like the show. I just cannot find anything that will keep me coming back for more. I find it boring. I don’t even like the opening song and I love to hear Harry sing.

    Love to see Harry show he has a great sense of humor. I never thought he would be cool guy that is funny and not afraid to be himself and interacts with people that’s what is so great about him. At least he is not like other talk host where they seem to up tight and a square person who is to good to have a sense of humor like him he makes me laugh and I enjoy watching his show.
