Marie Osmond's talk show a no-go

Posted on

Country singer and performer Marie Osmond’s upcoming talk show, Marie, has been put on hold due to the unfavorable economic climate, according to a statement released today by Osmond and her show’s distributor, Program Partners. The one-hour syndicated chat series was scheduled to debut in September, but struggling “broadcasting, advertising, and credit markets” made it impossible to support the program at this time. Osmond –who is currently performing nightly in Las Vegas with her brother, Donny– says she still hopes to return to daytime television in the future. “This project, under proper conditions, still remains a strong passion of mine,” she said.
