Lance Bass has a new talk show gig. Lance, famed as a member of N’ Sync, is now adding daytime TV to his resume. Bass has signed up to contribute full-time to Meredith Vieira’s talk show, reported Us Weekly.
Set to start Tuesday., September 8, the second season of the Meredith Vieira Show is taking a risk with a live broadcast. Lance will be present to kick-start the show each day. Bass will be contributing to the talk show from its home in Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Lance, 36, is be featured in a review of daily trending news. Bass will be joined by other talk show panelists, including Lilliana Vazquez, who founded the LVGuide; Yamaneika Saunders, known from Funny Girls and Last Comic Standing, and Today show contributor Megan Colarossi.
Meredith emphasized her excitement about the live broadcast.
“I’m excited to be returning live for our second season — uncut and unfiltered, anything can happen,” declared Vieira about Season 2 of her talk show. “With the new live format, we’ll be able to connect even more with our viewers and bring their voices into the discussion.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Nick Cannon recently appeared on Meredith’s show to discuss his twins and the endless Mariah Carey rumors.
Cannon also played one of Meredith’s games.
In addition to Meredith’s show, Lance recently appeared on a different talk show, The View, and got some fans excited with hints of an ‘N Sync reunion, reported BWW.
Bass indicated that there is a possibility that the guys could reunite to croon for their followers.
However, a previous attempt at a reunion with Lance and his ‘N Sync boy band members fell flat, reported Access Hollywood.
The first hint of a reunion came from the ‘N Sync Twitter account.
“Together again… Gee, it’s good to be together again #SNL40.”
That made fans assume that the entire band would be present at the Saturday Night Live special show. But when it failed, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick explained the reason.
“Here’s the reality of it, to be honest. Justin [Timberlake’s] here. We were all supposed to be here, but actually with the weather and everything else, JC [Chasez] could not be here. There was no performance [planned],” said Joey prior to the anniversary show.
In addition, the bad weather made it impossible to travel.
“My flight got canceled last night and I had to come in today,” Joey added.
“It’s freezing up here right now. Floridians don’t understand this… We lost our luggage. I freaked out,” Chris chimed in.
However, Bass did show up not to sing but to pose with pals.
