Magic Johnson, Bonnie Hunt

Bonnie Hunt, bless her heart, is getting her own daytime talk show, hear? Gal’s like the poor man’s straight woman’s Ellen. Did Megan Mullally and Whoopi Goldberg’s hideous daytime experiences (The View, notwithstanding) not teach us anything? How about Bonnie-babe’s own canceled sitcom?

B.H.’s first guest will be Jumanji costar (yep, reaching that far back) Robin Williams. What, couldn’t get ahold of Tom Cruise or Renée Zellweger? At least Jerry Maguire was a more recent flick.

Don’t exactly smell smashing success here, though we do love Bonnie, just not in blab-tube format. Seriously, tho, Hunt-hon’s a talented comedian and actress, but up against Ellen, Oprah and The View crew, is there any room left during daylight hours?

Oh, and still, Bonnie-babe’s gab fest will hardly come close as the worst talk show of all time, an honor still belonging to Magic Johnson's The Magic Hour for the last decade. Unless, of course, Conan replacement Jimmy Fallon keeps chuckling at his own jokes on Late Night, which he most definitely will.
