“The Kelly Clarkson Show” has been renewed for two additional seasons through 2025 at NBC, Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of syndication studios and E! News at NBCUniversal, announced Monday.
The critically acclaimed Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show, which is distributed by NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, is a bona fide hit that sees viewership growth year over year. It’s led by Emmy-winning showrunner Alex Duda, who executive produces along with Grammy- and Emmy-winning Clarkson.
The hourlong daytime program, currently in Season 4 and airing in all 211 local markets, averages 1.34 million watchers as its viewership continues to grow for a second consecutive season, making it the first time since 2014 to exhibit such growth. In local key demos, the show has seen year-over-year double-digit percentage increases among adults 25-54 in markets like Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, Miami, Charlotte, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
“Kelly Clarkson is one of the brightest stars of our time,” Wilson said in a statement. “With more than 500 hours viewed on broadcast, cable and digital platforms since its launch, ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ has been a home for stories that entertain, inspire important conversations and connect with loyal viewers across multiple generations in meaningful ways. Together, with our best-in-class producing team, we’ll continue to build on the show’s success and legacy.”
Valari Staab, chairman of NBCUniversal Local, added, “As the fourth season reaches new heights of critical acclaim and viewership, Kelly has used her genuine warmth and natural curiosity to create an engaging, fun show. ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ is a treasured part of our programming lineup, and we’re enthusiastic about its continued longevity.”
Speaking to TheWrap in a recent interview, Duda said the show prioritizes “connection” and Clarkson’s natural charisma with guests. “The Kelly Clarkson Show” formula brings together a diverse, signature panel of musicians, actors, directors and authors with everyday people doing extraordinary things in their communities. A standout segment is Clarkson’s own “Kellyoke,” which sees her cover tracks of any and all genres and time periods.
