Former Today co-host Meredith Vieira will interview Jennifer Lopez for the first episode of her new NBC talk show, The Meredith Vieira Show. The premiere episode airs Monday, Sept. 8. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lopez, 45, talks "openly and candidly" about her family, life and, of course, her highly-publicized relationships. The actress and singer, who split from Casper Smart earlier this summer, has recently been linked to Dancing With The Stars' stud Maksim Chmerkovskiy

For the first week of the show, Vieira also booked Seth Rogan and wife Lauren Miller, former Spice Girls' singer Mel B, Olympic swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen, comedien Howie Mandel, and actress Jessica Alba.

Alba, 33, will discuss how her two daughters, Honor and Haven, inspire her business empire. The Wall Street Journal recently valued Alba's The Honest Company at $1 billion. 

The Meredith Vieira Show premieres Monday, Sept. 8. For specific times by location, see the official website.
