Aisha Tyler tapped for talk show

By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Actress-comedian Aisha Tyler will host a “hybrid” talk show pilot for ABC.

“The Aisha Tyler Show” will incorporate aspects of a traditional talk show with comedic political commentary, comedy segments and other elements usually associated with late-night shows. Aimed at a younger audience, “Tyler” is being developed as a fully “wired” concept, with fans being able to communicate with Tyler via Facebook, Twitter and other platforms.

There has been speculation that the project might be eyed for ABC’s afternoon block, which airs the soaps “All My Children,” “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital.” (CBS recently canceled its long-running soap “Guiding Light” and will replace it with a game or talk show.)

But ABC sources stressed that “Tyler” is being targeted for syndication or cable.

Tyler recently appeared in the feature “Bedtime Stories” and on her recent Comedy Central special “Aisha Tyler Is Lit: Live at the Fillmore.” She’s completing a U.S. stand-up tour and next will write, direct and star in a series of webisodes for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s FunnyOrDie.com.

I’m looking forward to watching her talk show. I hope the pilot’s successful and gets picked up.  First Wanda Sykes and now Aisha. Finally some change in the late night talk show arena.
