We wanted to set the tone of our new show right off the bat -- that we're here to bring the entertainment world's brightest and best into the homes of our viewers-- from the legends and superstars to the new up-and-comers.”
“With the special friendship between George and Garth, and the fun relationship Charlie and I have enjoyed with both of them over the years, we are looking forward to sharing an entertaining show with our viewers," adds co-host Lorianne Crook.
