FOX’s new daytime talk-show ‘The Real’ hosted by Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Jeannie Ma is pulling in major ratings! According to reports, after one full week on the air, the show is literally killing the competition!
“The Real” is off to a good start — especially in New York.
After two days on the air, the summer tryout talk show is up 55 percent from what repeats of “Dr. Oz” averaged last year in the timeslot (noon on Ch. 5).
It’s also performed strongly among its target demo, increasing its viewership among women 25-54 by 63 percent over what the “Dr. Oz” repeats were pulling in last season — and it was up an identical 63 percent in women 18-49.
The show has also performed well nationally, increasing its time-slots 38 percent nationwide from what aired in those slots last year. It’s a bigger story, however, among women viewers; nationally, “The Real” is up a whopping 80 percent in women 25-54 over last year, while it’s up 60 percent in women 18-49. – New York Post
Congrats to the ladies! It’s great to see more African-American woman on daytime TV. I like to refer to this show as the younger generation version of ABC’s “The View“. I recorded a few episodes and I must say it’s a really good show. There are no topics off-limits and I mean NO TOPICS! LOL
The show airs at 11am Monday-Friday on FOX.
