Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert highlight a cast of women that will co-host a new show from CBS that will take over the time slot for "As the World Turns." Susan Hatch has more on the show along with some information on the other hosts for the still unnamed show.
It appears the network will use a six women panel to discuss the issues of the day. While CBS makes a daytime switch, Fox has a big job of replacing a legend in reality TV.
Mote TV notes - Fox producers have revealed it is proving "very difficult" to find a replacement judge for Simon Cowell on American Idol.
The 50-year-old music mogul left the Fox show earlier this year and bosses have claimed they still haven't found a replacement for him for the next season.
One of the other judges on the show, Randy Jackson, recently said: "We don't know yet. I think there's a lot of discussion going on. So we'll see. It's coming. It's coming."
A Fox exec added: "We didn't anticipate him leaving. I guess we took it for granted that as long as Idol continued Simon would be with us. It's very difficult trying to find someone to fill such huge shoes. "Negotiations are still ongoing."
