Queen Latifah Running over Bethenny In Talk Show Rating Wars

queen latifahQueen Latifah Is The New Queen of New Daytime Talk Shows.

Although Bethenny Frankel has a good show, the queen gave her a beat down in the ratings the first weeks their two shows were on the air.

Queen Latifah’s new talk show averaged 1.8 million viewers an episode during its premiere week, according to Nielsen ratings data.

Queen Latifah’s ratings are averaging about a third higher than those for the show hosted by the former The Real Housewives of New York City star.

She even beat out The Ellen DeGeneres Show in San Antonio last week. Ironically, DeGeneres is producing Frankel’s show.

Two more established talk shows attracted larger audiences during the week of Sept. 16. “Katie” with Katie Couric drew an average of 2.3 million viewers each day, according to Nielsen. “The Steve Harvey Show,” tucked in with 2.1 million viewers.

Queen Latifah also has the advantage of being one of the most admired names in daytime, according to the latest Q Survey, reports the Los Angeles Times, making The Queen Latifah Show especially attractive to advertisers.

All the best Queen!
