"TV Guide" says the USA Network is developing a new LATE NIGHT talk show . . . with WILL FERRELL'S production company . . . that will actually be modeled after MORNING talk shows.
You know, like "Live with Kelly and Michael", and the fourth hour of "Today", which is hosted by KATHIE LEE GIFFORD and HODA KOTB. Basically, it's aiming to be "the first 'morning show' of the day" . . . literally . . . at 12:01 A.M.
This SEEMS like an awesome, hilarious idea, especially since Will Ferrell has his hands in it . . . but there's a catch: That "morning show" thing ISN'T a joke. (???)
An "insider" says, quote, "They're dead serious. It'll have coffee cups, the whole thing. They want it to be a comedy-type program, but not a parody." There's no word on any hosts yet. Producers hope to hire a male-female hosting team soon.
