The Early Show Cancellation Details

Following the demise of his Food Network show, Emeril Live, celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse experimented with a program that was a mix of late night talk show (complete with a house band) and cooking show, but it quickly disappeared from TV. Fortunately for the charisma-filled Lagasse, this show was not his last, as he went on to star in several food related shows.

The Early Show Broadcast Time

The Early Show airs each weekday morning at 7AM to 9AM on CBS.

The Early Show Background

The Early Show is CBS' answer to The Today Show and Good Morning America. Like those morning programs, The Early Show provides viewers a lively mix of news, weather, sports, and special features on everything from health issues to entertainment. The weekday morning show on CBS has been through numerous incarnations over the years, with the current Early Show debuting in 1999. Bryant Gumbel and Julia Chen helmed the show in its early years, and when Gumbel left a few years later, Harry Smith, Hannah Storm, Rene Syler, and Dave Price joined the line-up. In 2011, further changes were made and now the weekday Early Show co-hosts are Erica Hill, Chris Wragge, Jeff Glor, and Marysol Castro. The program has a weekend counterpart, The Saturday Early Show, which airs on Saturday mornings.
