A syndicated talk show has received pickups that will ensure it remains on the air into 2020. TVNewsCheck reports that “The Real” was renewed by the Fox Television Stations for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 TV seasons.
The renewal covers all of Fox’s owned-and-operated stations in 17 markets, reaching more than 37% of TV households.
The report notes that “The Real,” which is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, went live this season, enabling viewer participation via social media platforms.
Ken Werner, WBDTD president, commented: “Since the 2010-11 season, 23 talk shows have launched and ‘The Real’ and ‘Steve Harvey’ are the only two series to last four or more seasons. While there are other panel talk series on the air, what truly makes ‘The Real’ stand out from the pack is that it is comprised of four very strong, very authentic and very engaging hosts whose chemistry is unrivaled. Fox has been with us since the start, and we are thrilled that together we have built a strong franchise that will continue to entertain, inform and inspire viewers for years and years to come.”
