“Karamo,” just two weeks ahead of its Sept. 19 premiere (weekdays at 1 p.m. on WPIX/Ch. 11).“I’ve been shooting ‘Queer Eye‘ in New Orleans for the past four months and didn’t have any lead time at all,” Brown said. “The first day I got to welcome our executive producer [Kerry Shannon, “Judge Jerry”] was the first day we shot … but it’s been working out great, so far.”Brown, 41, isn’t a novice to the talk-show field; he subbed several times for host Maury Povich on “Maury” last season and, when Povich announced his retirement in March, was knighted his daytime successor. “There was conversation [about replacing Povich] but you never know in this business until the ink is dry,” he said. “I could tell that the NBCUniversal distribution team had faith in me … and once they announced that Maury was retiring it was like, ‘Let’s make it official.'”Brown, whose long TV resume includes “The Real World: Philadelphia” and “Dancing With the Stars,” has been the “culture expert” on the second iteration of “Queer Eye” since the show’s 2018 premiere.On “Karamo,” he will focus on relationships and helping his guests get their lives in order — including asking permission, on occasion, to lock their cellphones or the phones of their partner.“I’m not someone who believes in lie-detector tests, that’s not my gig,” he said. “Everything we hold dear to us in on our phones; we literally look through people’s phones — locations, secret photos — and really does help the conversation and the growth of the guest.“It’s no more he said/she said, it’s more ‘Here’s the proof, let me show you.’ And I’m very proud of that.“If you have problems with your mother, father, children, parents, friends … I can help you solve your problems,” he said.
