Shocking news: There's big trouble on the set of "The Brian McKnight Show."

Even more shocking news: Brian McKnight has a talk show?

According to the California Labor Board, more than 20 employees have filed non-payment complaints against the McKnight show -- totaling $86,300.

But Brian's people intend to pay -- telling us there "was mismanagement in the beginning and since then we have gotten new investors and the show is continuing."

So don't touch that dial!
