“Our dearest Peggy McCay has left us,” McCay's longtime co-star Deidre Hall wrote on Facebook. “She was a friend, an activist and a real scrapper! I remember meeting her at the bedside of a dear, very ill friend. I backed her up as she ferociously took on doctors and nurses to make sure he had the very best care. She fought that hard for all her causes. Passionate and tireless. And how she loved being Caroline!”

The Voice star's NBC Universal-produced daytime talk show has been sold to 30% of NBC stations less than two months after she filmed a pilot. The Kelly Clarkson Show will replace Steve Harvey's Steve talk show. "I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson said in a statement. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!” Clarkson's talk show is described as a "weekday brunch party" featuring guests who would typically never meet. Clarkson's pilot featured a set dressed like a barn with guests Chloe Grace Moretz, Josh Groban and Terry Crews, as well as a group of quilting ladies from North Carolina.
- Clarkson accidentally spilled the beans on her talk show pickup while visiting Jimmy Fallon
- What will happen to Steve Harvey's Steve talk show? It's unclear, but the 7-year-old Steve has become expensive after relocating to Los Angeles
- Days of Our Lives might be the long-term casualty of Clarkson's talk show
