'The Kelly Clarkson Show' Renewed Through 2023
Kelly Clarkson's daytime talk show is sticking around for a while.
NBCUniversal Syndication Studios has renewed The Kelly Clarkson Show for two more years, which will take it through its fourth season in 2022-23. The show has been cleared in 75 percent of the country, including on NBC-owned stations, for seasons three and four.
"One ray of sunshine in this wildly unpredictable year is that we get to continue to deliver to stations and fans a show that brings people together," said NBCUniversal Syndication Studios executive vp Tracie Wilson. "This wouldn’t be possible without the heart and humor of the talented and dedicated Kelly Clarkson and our production team, led by the incomparable Alex Duda, both of whom are masters of storytelling. It's easy to see why Emmy voters, critics and viewers have become such loyal fans of the show."
Clarkson's show debuted in fall 2019 and became the most watched new daytime talk show in seven years. The current season — which returned to studio production after filming remotely in the spring and summer — is putting up solid ratings as well, averaging 1.31 million daily viewers and ranking in the top five syndicated talkers.
"The Kelly Clarkson Show is one of the most optimistic success stories in first-run syndication," said Valari Staab, president of NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. "Kelly is a beloved performer and host with deep roots at NBC, and we are delighted to have her continue to be a very important and treasured part of our stations' programming."
The show won three Daytime Emmys in 2020, including one for Clarkson as best entertainment talk show host. Duda is the executive producer and showrunner.
