Big day for summer debuts

From Tampa Bay-

Don't let the white collar and priestly garb throw you. "Father Albert" is not a religious talk show.

"Anyone who watches it for a few minutes will see that," says Father Albert Cutie, a former Catholic priest who is now an Episcopal minister for a Miami church.

He says his show may be inspirational and uplifting, and it's open to all topics. Like Oprah Winfrey, he'll be helping people deal with issues and dilemmas. In fact, he's been called "Father Oprah."

Father Albert, 42, enjoyed a successful 12-year run with a secular talk show on Telemundo.

He's being given a summer run on Fox-owned stations such as WTVT, Channel 13, which debuts his show at 11 a.m. today.

Cutie (pronounced Koo-Tee-Ay), says he has lived through some personal dilemmas himself, such as the scandal that caused him to leave the Catholic Church.
