August 20, 2018 -- “Page Six TV,” the half-hour daily pop culture program, modeled after Page Six, the iconic New York Post gossip column and website, is set to return for its second season on Monday, September 17, with new co-hosts, a fresh new look and an expanded team of contributors and insight from the editorial team at the New York Post.
Bevy Smith, Elizabeth Wagmeister and Carlos Greer kick off the second season in their new co-host roles from the show’s New York City-based set, which has been given a fresh new look and feel.
