The Nate Berkus Show, also known as The Nate Show, is an American talk show that premiered on September 13, 2010, and is hosted by interior designer Nate Berkus.[1] The series aired on syndication during its original run from September 13, 2010, to May 24, 2012. The Nate Berkus Show is a spin-off of The Oprah Winfrey Show.

In September 2012, the Oprah Winfrey Network purchased the cable rights to The Nate Berkus Show, along with the first five seasons of Rachael Ray.[2]

Production[edit]

The show is co-produced by Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television. It is taped in 1080i (HDTV) at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York.[3][4] The series is distributed by Sony Pictures Television, after Sony and NBCUniversal made agreements to launch the show on all 10 NBC owned and operated stations, as well as Harpo Productions.[5]

The show's premiere came in response to the cancellation of The Bonnie Hunt Show, which was not renewed for the 2010-11 television season. As a result, most NBC stations were having trouble finding daytime programming. Broadcasting & Cable reported that NBC syndicated daytime programming, aside from The Ellen DeGeneres Show, "have been largely out of the daytime game, primarily because of low to lukewarm ratings for Bonnie Hunt's show.[6]

On December 9, 2011, it was announced that the show would end after its second season.[7][8]It remained in production and delivered all scheduled original episodes.[7] The show officially ended on May 24, 2012, with reruns airing through August 31, 2012.

Ratings[edit]

When the show debuted, The Nate Berkus Show had a 1.1 rating, which was the highest rating for a new daytime talk show during the 2010-11 television season,[9] although the rating showed only half of what the ratings for Dr. Oz was. However, the series later became 126th-rated syndicated show and the lowest among established talk shows; which lead to its cancellation.[10]
