On the strength of year-to-year ratings gains, FOX TV Stations has renewed syndicated talk show The Real for Seasons 3 and 4,Deadline reports.
Frank Cicha, SVP Programming, Fox Television Stations, said of the two season pick-up:
“The Real has been an important piece in building our growing daytime lineup. In fact, in our universe, it often beats or ties The View. That alone is worth two more years in my book.’”
WBDTD president Ken Werner added:
“The Real in its second season has expanded on its promise of connecting with the diverse daytime television viewers and is delivering substantial ratings growth in the process. The series did not invent this genre of television program, nor are they only talk panel on television, but what The Real has done is differentiate itself from the others, quickly becoming an original, distinct and entertaining hour that has giving viewers a reason to make an appoint each and every day.”
