Two syndicated shows appear likely to receive renewals soon, with Warner Bros.’ panel talk show “The Real” and Debmar Mercury’s “Celebrity Name Game” looking likely to receive second seasons, reports Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva.

The renewals would come after a better season overall for new syndicated programs, following a lackluster season last year, the story notes. Two new syndicated shows have already received renewals: NBCU’s “The Meredith Vieira Show” and CTD’s “Hot Bench,” the piece adds.

“During the November sweep, all four syndie rookies that have been renewed or expected to be logged 1.0 rating or above in households. Judge Judy Sheindlin-created and produced court show ‘Hot Bench’ averaged a 1.7, followed by ‘Celebrity Name Game’ (1.3), ‘Meredith Vieira’ (1.2) and ‘The Real’ (1.0),” the piece reports.

Andreeva adds: “Last year, only one first-year syndicated series, ‘Queen Latifah,’ was above 1.0 for the November sweep, at 1.1, followed by ‘Bethenny’ (0.9), ‘Arsenio Hall’ (0.7) and ‘The Test’ (0.6), all canceled by the spring.”
