Talk Show ‘The Real’ Renewed Through 2020 as Other Syndicated Series Teeter on Bubble

Warner Bros. has snagged a two-season renewal with Fox Television Stations for its syndicated talk show “The Real.” The deal comes as the fate of other established syndie series — including talkers hosted by Maury Povich, Steve Wilkos, Harry Connick Jr., “The Doctors” and “CrimeWatch Daily” — remain up in the air.

Warner Bros. pact with the Fox stations virtually ensures that the ladies of “” will keep on yakking through 2019-20 season. The Fox O&Os carry the show in 17 major markets covering 37% of U.S. television households.

The syndication business heads toward the annual National Association of Television Program Executives conference in Miami later this month with uncertain futures for an unusually high number of established shows. Because daytime syndicated series are five-day-a-week affairs, there’s usually a long lead time for producers, distributors and station owners on renewal and cancellation decisions. The NATPE conference, which runs Jan. 16-18, is typically a de facto deadline for distributors on making calls for the upcoming season.

CBS Television Distribution’s “The Doctors” and NBCUniversal TV Distribution’s “Harry” are seen as long shots to return for the 2018-19 season. “Doctors” is now in its tenth season. “Harry” is midway through its second season. The pending acquisition of Tribune Media, one of the industry’s biggest buyers of first-run programming, by Sinclair Broadcast Group is another factor in the delayed decision-making this time around.

“Maury” and “Steve Wilkos” are also veteran players that would open up significant time-period real estate on strong stations were one or both to sunset after the current season. The state of flux has distributors, including Warner Bros., holding off on yea or nay decisions about launching new first-run strips. Warner Bros. has been prepping a comedy-variety series fronted by Jane Lynch. CBS Television Distribution has piloted a conflict-resolution series “Face the Truth” hosted by Vivica A. Fox. But neither have been formally pitched to TV station buyers — yet.

The two freshman strips that bowed this past fall are both expected to return for year two: Twentieth Television’s “Page Six TV” and “DailyMail TV.” Station buyers seem inclined to give both entertainment news-driven strips more time to find their legs, especially with a dearth of new product on the market.

“The Real,” now in season four, had also been on the bubble but ultimately had enough traction with the Fox stations to command a renewal.

“While there are other panel talk series on the air, what truly makes ‘The Real’ stand out from the pack is that it is comprised of four very strong, very authentic and very engaging hosts whose chemistry is unrivaled,” said Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution president Ken Werner. “Fox has been with us since the start, and we are thrilled that together we have built a strong franchise that will continue to entertain, inform and inspire viewers for years and years to come.”

“The Real” is a homegrown success story for Warner Bros. and Fox as the series started with a test run in a handful of Fox markets in the summer of 2013. The roundtable show tackles headlines and topical issues from the perspective of four multicultural women, in addition to offering celebrity interviews and lifestyle segments. Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley are the hosts. Rachel Miskowiec is exec producer.

“On one hand, it’s very gratifying to be renewing a program that started as a test. On the other hand, it doesn’t matter how it got here,” said Frank Cicha, senior VP of programming for Fox Television Stations. “Warner Bros. set out to fill a void and it fit our audience perfectly. Congrats to the cast and crew.”

September 9th marked the official launch of Tamron Hall’s long-awaited talk show … and let’s just say, it was well worth the wait.

And we’re definitely not the only ones who think so. The ratings were incredibly strong for Tamron, particularly in the New York and Los Angeles markets. In fact, Tamron’s debut was the second highest for any daytime talk show in five years, just behind Kelly Clarkson’s (which also premiered on September 9th). In short, the former Today anchor is already off to an amazing start.

The thing is though, some Tamron fans expressed on Twitter that they are having a hard time figuring out how to watch the new program.

“Does anybody know what channel is Tamron Hall show …” one asked. “What network is it on??” another wanted to know. “I can’t find any listings showing who your daily guests will be?!??” a different fan tweeted at the Tamron Hall Show Twitter account, while another shared that they were having a hard time “locating which station” they could watch it on.

Of course, these questions are totally normal — after all, it is a brand new show. Thankfully, Tamron herself pointed her fans in the right direction on Twitter while taking the time to thank her viewers.

Thank You!!! Our first show ratings are in @TamronHallShow #tamcam. I appreciate y’all so much! It’s one day and the journey continues. Find your time and channel @ https://t.co/bPhMFZ6hRh and keep watching! pic.twitter.com/9zz7T6U2sv

“Thank You!!! Our first show ratings are in @TamronHallShow #tamcam. I appreciate y’all so much! It’s one day and the journey continues,” she tweeted, while also including a link to the show’s website for channel and time information.

So how do you watch the Tamron Hall Show and what channel is it on?

Steve Harvey’s daytime talk show to end in June

Steve Harvey TV

Steve Harvey’s time on daytime appears to be coming to an end. His syndicated talk show, Steve, will end its run in June, multiple outlets reported Friday.

The show, distributed by NBCUniversal Television, followed Harvey’s first foray into the format, Steve Harvey, which was produced in Chicago and began airing in 2012. It followed more in the mold of shows like Dr. Phil and won several Emmys in the Informative Talk Show category. In 2017, Harvey relocated to Los Angeles to produce a new version of the show, now called Steve, with more creative control and a revamped format. The new incarnation focused more on comedy segments and celebrity guests.

According to Variety, the move angered NBCUniversal executives, as it cost the company its ownership stake in the show, and is the probable reason for its end. Steve’s producers are reportedly trying to shop the show to other outlets. Harvey will remain on the air in his longtime gig hosting Family Feud. Meanwhile, NBC-owned stations will fill Steve’s time slot with Kelly Clarkson’s new talk show.

Reps for NBCUniversal and Harvey did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

Not even syndicated series are safe from the ax in this week of heavy TV casualties: Steve Harvey‘s talk show will stop airing this summer, our sister site Variety reports.

Steve taped its final episode Thursday; the installment, which will serve as a series finale, will air in June. Kelly Clarkson’s eponymous daytime chatfest will take Steve‘s place on NBC owned-and-operated affiliates in the fall, airing weekdays as the lead-in to Ellen in the following markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Miami, San Diego and Hartford. (In Boston, it will air in a different time slot.)

Harvey hosted The Steve Harvey Show for five seasons. That endeavor wrapped in May 2017, after which Harvey partnered with IMG to retool the daytime offering and call it Steve. Production of the series also moved from Chicago to Los Angeles at that time. The shiny, new Steve launched in September 2017.

Steve‘s cancellation doesn’t mean the comedian is out of work: He also is the current host of Family Feud.

It’s cold comfort, but Harvey’s show was in good company Friday: ABC’s The Fix, The Kids Are Alright, Speechless and Splitting Up Together, NBC’s I Feel Bad and Fox’s The Passage and Lethal Weapon all were sacked the same day.

When one door closes for Tamron Hall, another door opens. More than two years after it was revealed that the 49-year-old would no longer be a part of the Today show and NBC News, she’s landed an impressive new job—her very own self-titled talk show. Though this change is exciting and new, it’s also a change that the mother-of-one is welcoming with open arms.

“I don’t think I’ve ever said this out loud, but every ‘no’ that I received in my life, and there have been many, it’s made sense at some point in time,” she told Good Housekeeping. “We are not the biggest job we’ve landed…I’m not Tamron from the Today show. I’m Tamron.”

And the award-winning journalist is proving with her already popular daytime talk show that being Tamron is more than enough. So, how can viewers catch the new show? And what’s it all about? Read on for everything (and more) you need to know about Tamron Hall.

What is Tamron Hall’s show about?

Hall previously told Parade that her show will be a “traditional daytime talk, like Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin, Rolonda Watts, Jenny Jones and, of course, the great Oprah Winfrey. The kind of daytime shows that I fell in love with.”

Broadcasting from New York City with both live and pre-taped shows, Hall’s talk show is a place for viewers to connect with celebrities and everyday people “who are shaping our world through meaningful, engaging and entertaining conversations,” according to her website.

What’s happened so far on Tamron Hall’s show?

Since premiering on Sept. 9, Hall has welcomed a wide array of celebrities on her show to talk about everyday issues including Real Housewives stars Kenya Moore and Gretchen Rossi, who opened up about their celebrations and struggles with IVF. On that same episode, which aired on Sept. 16, Hall’s son Moses, whom she welcomed via IVF, made his television debut.

“The journey is filled with many ups and downs, I never knew that it would end like this,” she said as she cuddled her little one while walking around the set. “I love this boy with all my heart.”

Another guest that appeared on the show is soap opera icon Susan Lucci, who opened up about her successful 50-year marriage to husband Helmut Huber.

“My instincts told me he was it, my heart told me he was it, my head told me he was it. He made me laugh then and he makes me laugh now, I mean that’s very lucky,” she revealed.

Other celebrities she’s welcomed on the show include Fantasia, Tracie Ellis-Ross, Gretchen Carlson, Mary Wilson, Catherine Oxenberg, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tika Sumpter.

Aside from famous stars, Hall has also met with real life people who’ve opened up about their personal journeys, including a grandmother who gave birth to her own grandchild and women who were forced into marriage at an early age.

Where can I watch Tamron Hall’s show on TV and stream full episodes online?

The show is syndicated nationally, so fans can go to TamronHallShow.com and type in their zip code to see where the show is airing in their specific location.

Unfortunately, full episodes from season one are not available for streaming, however, the show’s website does have clips from various segments that have aired on the show. Hall’s YouTube channel also has exciting clips from her interviews and behind the scenes.

What happened to Tamron Hall before this?

In February 2017, Al Roker revealed that Hall would no longer be a part of the Today show or NBC News. “We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success, and cannot wait to see what her next chapter is,” he said at the time.

Hall’s contract with NBC happened to be up in February, and she was in the process of negotiating it when reports surfaced that Megyn Kelly was being considered for her own one-hour segment on Today.

“I was heartbroken,” Hall told USA Today of her abrupt exit. “ you’ve been putting in the work, and suddenly your employer says they’re phasing you out. I had some suspicions, because I’m a reporter and I’m pretty intuitive, but no one wants to lose their job. It wasn’t about who I was losing it to–it was like a relationship where you’re putting in 100 percent and the person who’s putting in less has the nerve to break up with you.”

The reporter chose to leave on her own accord, revealing with a statement, “The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”

How much money is Tamron Hall worth?

Prior to her exit from NBC, it was revealed that the journalist’s net worth was roughly $5 million. The current salary that Hall is earning for her new talk show has not been disclosed, though due to her impressive ratings so far, we’re sure she’s doing just fine.

— Tamron Hall (@tamronhall) September 10, 2019

Hall is an open book. TV host has shared her fertility journey with the world.

So Hall pitched a daytime show rooted in those conversations to Disney-ABC. They were in. Her self-titled talk show will be syndicated across the country and feature a mix of real women and celebrities. The format will vary from episode to episode, ranging from interviews to lifestyle segments, but Hall wants to give the traditional talk show structure an injection of 2019 culture. She says she’ll begin all conversations by asking guests about their relationships before diving into a round of real talk.

In many ways Tamron Hall will be the anti-Dr. Phil. Think no paternity tests but plenty of hormone testing. Or as Hall puts it, “If you go on , your relationship is already in trouble. It’s not fixable. For us, it’s having that authentic conversation you would have with your girlfriends. Like about fertility. I interviewed a woman who recently froze her eggs at 35 because she thought it was putting pressure on her relationships. That’s a major modern-woman decision. That’s our show.”

Celebrities will also be prominently featured on Tamron Hall, but Hall plans to engage them on these issues. Her dream guest is Celine Dion—not to discuss her fashion or iconic career, but rather her fertility journey. “Celine’s a well-known person,” Hall explains, “but with the birth of her children, that was a woman who wanted to be a mother and did what it took to get there.”

Fertility is top of mind for Hall, who had her first child, four-month-old Moses, this year. To conceive, she underwent in vitro fertilization after having unsuccessful fertility procedures in her 30s.

And while the past few months have been an embarrassment of riches (albeit hard-fought ones), Hall is now figuring out how to “have it all.” She employs a nanny (something she wishes more women in the public eye would be vocal about); she insists on a dedicated half hour of cuddles with her son at 6:45 each morning; her husband, music manager Steven Greener, begins his day a bit later so he can finish Moses’s morning care. Even with the help, it’s not an easy schedule. “There’s no balance. I don’t know what that means,” she says. “There are some days where I look at my son in his crib in the morning when it’s dark and I’m flying a 5-in-the-morning flight to go promote the show, and I start crying because it will be midnight when I get back and he’ll be asleep. So he went the whole day without seeing me. But that’s the reality of it.”

These issues—marriage, motherhood, and figuring out how to make it all work—are the types of conversations Hall has been spending her days unpacking with her team, all of whom she hand selected. Early on, Hall says, she went to a development meeting for the program and found herself in a room of all men. Hall put her foot down: She never wanted to be the only woman in the room again. “Daytime television is predominantly watched by women,” she explains. “ not representative of the viewership. We need diversity in television, and it’s not just race. It’s geography, it’s different walks of life.” All of which she took care to have reflected in her staff. Hall’s creative team is now 30 percent black women. Many of the senior staffers are mothers. Women fill out nearly all of the key roles.

Now, with Tamron Hall on air, Hall wants to give herself the opportunity to marvel at how far she’s come. ”I get emotional thinking about it. It’s been a hell of a journey,” she says. “People tell you to be proud of yourself. We tell our friends and our kids they should be proud. Yet when you actually are proud of yourself, you get shamed for that pride. With this show, whatever the outcome, I will be proud of myself.”
