T.J. Holmes & Amy Robach Turned Down By TV Networks Amid Quest Of Landing Their Own Daytime Talk Show

Not so good news for T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach.

According to reports, several TV networks have turned down the former “GMA3” co-hosts as they pitched around their own daytime talk show. Reportedly, many networks are “steering clear” of the media personalities altogether.

According to sources close to the situation, CBS’ syndicate operation, CBS Media Ventures, recently turned down a talk show proposal from the duo. CNN also turned down a pitch from the pair’s talent agency, CAA. T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach reportedly also reached out to Fox Entertainment and Fox Television stations to discuss having their own syndicated program.

Reportedly, they met with executives for “general meetings” on “various opportunities” that weren’t “limited” to just a “talk show.”

A skeptical TV expert said,

“If they did a talk show, what would they talk about? What’s their expertise — infidelity? They’d take anything. I think they’d host a game show at this point.”

An insider close to Fox said,

“I don’t think the talks are serious at all. CAA set up these meetings and everybody took them. I don’t think anyone is serious. I don’t think there’s any there there.”

Despite getting turned down by a few networks, Holmes and Robach are reportedly still in the process of meeting with other media companies.

Reports claim the former anchors have been “pitching a show a la Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos” and reached out to the producers behind “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

According to insiders, details of Holmes and Robach’s pitch have been described as “vague.” One source said Robach and Holmes have told execs they “can be whatever you want us to be.”

The insider said,

“One thing’s for sure…they can’t do news.” 

Last month, an insider told sources that Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes weren’t done with television and,

“remain confident another network or cable channel will see the value in their undeniable chemistry.”

Sources teased that

“some of the best television double acts have been lovers!”

As previously reported, T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach were temporarily suspended from the news program, “GMA 3” following their affair going public. Holmes and Amy Robach began anchoring “GMA3” together almost three years ago and allegedly started their affair in the summer of 2022. However, both anchors have reportedly claimed they were separated from their spouses before they started dating.

On Dec. 28 Holmes filed for divorce from his wife Marilee Fiebig, after 12 years of marriage. The filing came two days after he was captured in an airport with Robach. The ex-couple share a daughter, Sabine, 10, together. Robach’s divorce from her husband, Andrew Shue, was finalized last week.

Ultimately, after a months-long investigation, ABC decided to part ways with the news anchors.

A company spokesperson said in a statement,

“After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes about different options, we all agreed it’s best for everyone that they move on from ABC News. We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions.”
