WHAT THE TALK SHOW HAS ACHIEVED
Clarkson's talk show has averaged 1.9 million daily viewers since it began. It was reported that it was the strongest start for a first-year syndicated talk show in seven years.
“The Kelly Clarkson Show” now ranks fourth among all syndicated talk shows. It sits on a pedestal with long-term shows like “Dr. Phil,” “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
THE SHOW’S PAST GUESTS
The country singer starts each show with a "Kellyoke" segment. During the segment, she covers a song that her audience connects to.
Her talk show premiered on September 9, 2019, after being announced in 2018. She’s since had numerous famous guests like Nick Jonas, John Cena, and Jason Momoa.
TALK SHOW IS OUTPERFORMING OTHER ESTABLISHED ONES
Clarkson’s show has managed to outrank established daytime shows like "Maury," "Dr. Oz," and "Rachael Ray." In an email to CNN Business, the musician stated:
"I think the world is craving stories with humor, heart and everyday heroes that they can relate to. I love hosting a show that is fun and inclusive... Whether you are a guest on the show or are an audience member watching, I want everyone to feel welcome and know they matter."
