Queen Latifah is beating Bethenny Frankel when it comes to TV ratings, according to the latest Nielsen report.
The rapper turned actress is now enjoying a successful run with her revamped talk-show which currently sees 1.8million people tune in every single day to keep up with Latifah’s funny skits, interviews and lifestyle talk.
On the other hand, Bethenny isn’t doing as good as everybody thought she would as her own ratings continue to fall despite the fact that she has had a lot of support by fellow talk-show host and friend Ellen Degeneres.
Sources are already saying that FOX are keeping an eye on Bethenny Frankel’s show because the fact that less and less people tune in is starting to worry the network since they’ve invested so much money into the set and other costs.
Latifah’s show, which gained 10 million viewers in its first five days on television, has made the show become the second highest rated talk-show premiere since 2009. That is huuuuuge!
So while things are going great on the Queen’s end, Bethenny needs to start stepping her game up if she wants to last in this business because her viewership is – how do we put it – crap.
Of course no one is competing with Ellen just yet since she averages at around 2.5 million per show but Queen Latifah is in her first season and is already blowing her competition out the door. Before you know it, she’ll overtake Ellen.
Either way, Bethenny Frankel should be worried about her own show because unless she finds a way to attract an audience, she’ll be off our television screens for good by early next year.
Sidenote: The Queen Latifah Show is great! Probably the best talk-show on television right now. Well produced and is very diverse with its content. We certainly like it.
