Talkers, mags up as syndies soar

11 December 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Syndicated TV shows enjoyed a significant rebound during the November sweep with an additional 619,000 television households tuning in to daytime and primetime access talk, magazine, game and court shows compared with last year. Numerous first-run syndicated programs posted significant ratings increases year-to-year, according to ratings data published Wednesday. Leading talk shows and magazine shows were generally higher, while game and court shows posted mixed results -- though most off-network sitcoms dipped year-to-year. The top three talk shows -- The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Phil and Live! With Regis & Kelly -- all posted double-digit increases from November 2002, according to Nielsen Media Research. Oprah (7.2 average audience household rating) was up 15% year-to-year. Dr. Phil (5.7) posted a significant year-to-year gain of 27%, while Regis & Kelly (3.9) enjoyed an 11% increase in viewing households. The Maury Povich Show (3.2) was even with the previous year's ratings performance. »

Old faves hit new highs as syndies roll

26 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Several syndicated shows were on a major roll midway through the November sweep period, with some top-level programs hitting their best ratings ever and others posting their strongest numbers in years. Veteran talker The Oprah Winfrey Show posted a 7.7 average household audience rating, which represented its best ratings performance in five years, according to the Nielsen Media Research syndication rankings for the week ending Nov. 16. Oprah's numbers also represented a 13% jump from the week before and a 24% gain compared with its performance for the same period last year. The No. 2 talk show, Dr. Phil (5.7), was down 3% but up 19% year-to-year after hitting its season high the week before. Live! With Regis & Kelly (4.0) was up 8% for the week and 18% year-to-year. Maury (3.4) hit a season high with a 10% week-to-week gain and was up 3% year-to-year. Other talk shows hitting season bests were The Montel Williams Show (2.6), up 8% for the week; Ricki Lake (1.5), up 15%; and The John Walsh Show (1.3), up 18%. »

Hilton checks out from 'Simple' PR plan

26 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Thanks to videotape and Internet file-sharing, many Americans are now intimately familiar with the energetic love life of Paris Hilton. But the willowy hotel heiress and her new PR rep are making few friends in the TV business. On Tuesday, Fox will premiere The Simple Life, a reality series that deposits Hilton and fellow child of privilege Nicole Richie on a hardscrabble Arkansas farm. In terms of publicity, the debut could hardly come at a better time for Fox, given that clips from a sex tape the blond socialite made with a former boyfriend turned up on the Internet this month. Even before the tape surfaced, Fox had begun booking Hilton for an intense round of media appearances to drum up interest in Simple Life. The PR campaign seemed particularly critical now that the child-molestation allegations against singer Michael Jackson threaten to sweep smaller scandals onto the back burner, at least for a while. But in a turn of events at least as odd as the homemade porn tape itself, Hilton's New York-based publicist, Dan Klores, has angered Fox officials by abruptly canceling all of her scheduled appearances, including Live! With Regis & Kelly, MTV's TRL, CBS' The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn and Sharon Osbourne's daytime talk show. Hilton's inhospitality also roused the ire of CBS host David Letterman, who was supposed to welcome her to Late Show tonight. For the past four nights, Letterman has begged Hilton to come on the show while attacking her PR rep on-air as a "goon" and "pond scum" for nixing the original interview. »

'Regis & Kelly' lead syndie talkers pack

12 November 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Several syndicated shows opened the November sweep period with impressive numbers despite widespread pre-emptions on the West Coast for coverage of the devastating California wildfires during the week ending Nov. 2. The period included the first two weekdays and first weekend of the sweep period. Live! With Regis & Kelly (4.0 rating) enjoyed the biggest increase in daytime among talk shows with a 14% jump, its highest rating since April. Helping the show's advance was a 4.6 rating on Halloween morning, when the hosts dressed up as Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson and various other costumes throughout the hour before winding up as Batman and Catwoman. Halloween was the second day of the November sweep. A single ratings point represents 1.084 million households. »

He is moving from Twentieth's new strip Classmates. Marla Kell Brown will serve as consulting executive producer. Armour's production credits include the syndicated strips The Montel Williams Show, Queen Latifah and Ricki Lake.

Additionally, Rosanna Tavarez has signed on as news anchor on the Seacrest strip. Tavarez began her television career as a bilingual entertainment reporter-producer at Telemundo/MUN2's Fuzion.

Sharon Osbourne Talk Show Plagued by Problems

31 July 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Morale on the set of rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne's upcoming talk show is dangerously low because pre-production has been beset by a wealth of problems. The Sharon Osbourne Show is set to debut on September 15, but celebrity guests have proved difficult to book - and two producers are so stressed they ended up leaving the studio in an ambulance, according to the New York Post's Pagesix website. A studio source reveals, "We're six weeks from debuting and we really don't have a formula that works. Sharon is lovely. She's smart. Everybody loves Sharon and no one wants to do a show that will embarrass her. But the executives have changed their minds 10,000 times and it's like we're starting from scratch." Some staff have been working on the show for two months, but stress has proved so great two producers were admitted to hospital - one suffering a seizure and the other an asthma attack. The source adds, "The whole staff feels beaten down and exhausted. Everybody wants to leave. There's a sense of mutiny." Jim Paratore, president of Telepictures Productions, said on Monday, "This show won't be like any other show on TV. The Sharon Osbourne Show will combine celebrity segments a la Live With Regis And Kelly, human interest stories a la Oprah, plus musical guests and pre-taped mini-reality segments. It's really three shows in one, and that's why it's been such a difficult start-up. It's always been a very ambitious show. It takes a while to get everybody on the same page." So far the only celebrities lined-up by bookers are David Spade and Bow Wow, and Paratore admits, "Morale is mixed. The people doing good are feeling good, the people who are not, are not." »
