Morning talk shows are a closed club. As with the night-time chat-fests viewers tend to remain dedicated to their favorites. "The View" was once a unique opinion-based format. Now, several "View" clones dot the airwaves. "Good Morning America" and the "Today Show" remain at war for fans that prefer marathon-style viewing. In addition, Kelly Ripa has managed to hold the reigns on the "House That Regis Built." Both Wendy Williams and Bethenny Frankel bring a bit of fun and edge for a younger skewing audience. Then there are the doctor and cooking shows.
For those who are looking to break out of the norm, there's VH1's "Big Morning Buzz." The show has an eclectic format that seems to run on adrenaline. The quirky show features musical acts, celebrity interviews, exercise advice, and more. It appears to be hosted in a hallway, but this doesn't detract from the entertainment factor.
Never heard of the "Big Morning Buzz" show? Here's a cheat sheet about this funky little show that could. Don't miss an opportunity to check it out for yourself.
The VH1 blog highlights co-hosts Carrie Keagan and Jason Dundas. Carrie is known for heating things up online. She's been with the show for five seasons and her co-host has been there for three. She's an actress, writer, and producer with an impressive 7,000 interviews under her belt. If she looks familiar, you might have seen her on "Reno 911."
Enjoyable episodes included guests Jamie Lynn Sigler and Eve Torres. Sigler currently stars in NBC's "Guys With Kids" and is best known as Meadow Soprano on the long-running HBO series "The Sopranos." The Mob princess gave great conversation.
Eve Torres is a WWE Diva Champion. The gorgeous professional fighter brought her self-defense skills to the program. She taught the host (and viewers) a couple of great moves that included a kick to the groin.
