There’s nothing wrong with the sound on your television. Daytime’s newest talk host isn’t helium-voiced hellion Karen Walker of NBC’s Will & Grace. It’s her real-life alter ego, the lower- pitched Emmy-winner Megan Mullally.
On Monday, she kicks off The Megan Mullally Show (syndicated, check local listings), a light entertainment mix of interviews — both celebrity and civilian — comedy sketches, taped field pieces and interaction with the studio audience.
An admirer of Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin and Dinah Shore while growing up in Oklahoma, Mullally filled in for David Letterman in 2003. “I just had so much fun doing it. I was so not nervous, I took a nap before the show.”
