“The first of the dominos have fallen,” a television source said. “Amy and TJ will be talking to the distributors behind Rachael Ray and pitching themselves, no doubt. They view this as the first of their chances to make it back onto television screens and not on ABC.”
Amy and TJ have been off the air since ABC removed them from Good Morning America after Daily Mail published photos of the two getting cozy on dates.
The married anchors were accused of having an affair for over 6 months. ABC launched an investigation into the matter which lasted weeks.
“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,” the network said. “We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions.”
In the months since signing their exit deals, sources revealed, Amy and TJ “aren’t done with television and remain confident another network or cable channel will see the value in their undeniable chemistry.” While the two have been photographed partying in Mexico and Hawaii, the two have told television execs they are ready for a comeback.
The couple was told to sit back and wait for a second. “They’re being urged by managers to wait for the next round of syndicated television pitches to present to buyers a new format that would rival their old slot at ABC,” a source said.
“Can they pull it off? Stranger things have happened.,” a television source added. “Daytime television is a different ballgame these days and TJ and Amy have what it takes. They are not too scarred from the scandal.”
