Many TV networks are “steering clear” of the media personalities, according to the New York Post.
CBS’ syndicate operation, CBS Media Ventures, turned down a “proposal” for a talk show from the controversial couple, per an insider close to Amy and TJ.
CNN also turned down a pitch from the duo’s talent agency, CAA, when they reached out to the network on behalf of the ex-ABC personalities in February.
Amy and TJ have also reached out to Fox Entertainment and Fox Television stations, meeting with station execs to discuss having their own syndicated program.
A source told the outlet that the interactions between the two and Fox were “general meetings” on “various opportunities” that weren’t “limited” to just a “talk show.”
Even though Amy and TJ are striving to get back to fans on-air, a TV expert recently slammed the possibility of the pair having their own talk show.
“If they did a talk show, what would they talk about? What’s their expertise — infidelity?” the unnamed expert told the New York Post.
“They’d take anything. I think they’d host a game show at this point.”

Despite a few networks turning them away, Amy and TJ are still sending their pitch around to people who could help materialize it into a reality.
According to insiders, Amy and TJ’s show pitch details are still “vague” and malleable.
One source told the New York Post that TJ and Amy told execs they could “be whatever you want us to be.”
“One thing’s for sure…they can’t do news,” the insider told the publication.
They were also caught apparently spending time together at each other’s apartments in Manhattan.
At the time, TJ and his wife Marilee Fiebig were married, and Amy was married to her husband Andrew Shue, 55 – each respective couple had been married since 2010.
While the hosts were legally married upon the breaking news, a source told the outlet that they were in the process of separating from their partners.
Several sources had previously told The U.S. Sun exclusively that an official announcement from the network was “imminent” despite ongoing talks with ABC.
Hours later, a source told The U.S. Sun that the move was official: “Amy and TJ are out at the network. They reached a deal a few minutes ago.”
The spokesperson for the network then released a statement confirming they had parted ways from the stars.
“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,” they shared.
“We recognize their talent and commitment over the years and are thankful for their contributions.”
