In the DC area, the premier of Queen Latifah’s daytime show on ABC waited a day because of the news coverage of the shootings at the Washington Navy Yard Sept. 16. It appears that the Sept. 16 kickoff (with John Travolta) was not shown here.
In some markets, Latifah replaces Anderson Cooper’s daytime show, which was stopped as of the end of the 2012-2013 season. That show (“where the real conversation begins”) tended to focus on people with extreme problems, although sometimes it hit hard real issues, such as the setting up of “libel web sites”. Cooper came out as openly gay about a year ago, and Hollywood Reporter has a glowing report here. Right now, that leaves him with his AC360 show, which airs twice each weeknight, and special. However, his contract with CNN as a news anchor ends this fall. USA Today has a story here.
In Washington DC, Queen Latifah airs on WJLA (ABC) as syndicated, but Hollywood Reporter shows it as having originated with CBS.
