Jenner Talks to Twentieth About Talk Show
Would run as test on Fox stations next summer

The test would follow this summer's successful test of Warner Bros.' Bethenny, starring Real Housewife and Skinnygirl Bethenny Frankel, which Fox picked up for next fall.
Fox has established a pattern of testing shows before it picks them up, including Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams and Twentieth's own new entertainment magazine, Dish Nation.
Not all of the tests have met with success, however. Attempts such as TMZ spin-off Beyond Twisted and Debmar-Mercury's Fran Drescher and Father Albert failed quickly.
Besides her appearances on E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Jenner has picked up some talk experience appearing on CBS' The Talk from time to time.
A Twentieth spokeman declined to comment.
I agree with Eric as regards the chances of a Kris Jenner talk show.
She's hoping to do the show just because of her name!
Hopefully, if Twentieth does launch a new talk show in 2013, it will be hosted by someone else who can do either a very entertaining or very informative show (or a combination of the two) and is very talented at doing so.

I'm not a fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashian's... and I believe this proposed talk show headlined by Kris Jenner would likely be destined to fail. I wouldn't even care to watch the show.
