Actress Drew Barrymore premieres her talk show Sept. 14 on WXIX-TV.

Greater Cincinnati daytime viewers will see more of the same this fall.

The new daytime shows can be counted on one hand: Drew Barrymore's talk show premiering Monday, Sept. 14 on WXIX-TV; Protection Court switching from WXIX-TV to Channel 12.2 that day; and WSTR-TV adding a second run for the People's Court at 9 a.m. on Sept. 21.

The Drew Barrymore Show will air at noon, following Rachael Ray on Channel 19. The granddaughter of actor John Barrymore has enjoyed an acting career spanning four decades (Charlie's Angels, The Wedding Singer, Fever Pitch. 50 First Dates, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial). Her show will be taped in Los Angeles.

Here's my list of local daytime changes provided by the stations:


Drew Barrymore (noon-1 p.m., WXIX-TV). To make room for Barrymore, Channel 19  shifts 25 Words or Less to 1 p.m. from noon, and the daytime Jeopardy! repeat moves from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Protection Court (2-3 p.m., Channel 12.2). Judge Carroll Kelly's domestic relations cases move from Channel 19, replacing Personal Injury Court.


People's Court (9-10 a.m., WSTR-TV): Channel 64 benches Judge Frank Caprio and his Caught In Providence show in favor of People's Court Judge Marilyn Milian.  Additional episodes continue to air noon-1 p.m. on Channel 64.


Schitt's Creek (1:30 a.m. late Monday/early Tuesday, Channel 12.2). These are broadcast repeats of the Canadian and Pop TV series created by Eugene and Dan Levy about a former wealthy family living in a small-town motel.
