Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution’s one-hour daily talk show hosted by Bethenny Frankel has been gaining momentum since a successful six-week test run on Fox-owned stations over the summer. Those came after Bethenny was eyed for a fall 2012 launch before clearances stalled in a crowded market. Now Fox stations representing 37% of the country will serve as launch partner this fall, with 60% of the talk show’s clearances now set on traditional affiliates of ABC, CBS and NBC from stations groups representing NBC, Hearst, Gannett, Sinclair, Cox, Lin, Raycom, Post-Newsweek, Media General, Allbritton, Gray, Northwest, and Journal among others. Bethenny is produced by Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production and Warner Bros’ Telepictures Prods.
