The homegrown chef’s talker will air in 90 percent of the country through 2016
Rachael Ray’s brand of straight-shooting talk and culinary solutions for the busy gal will be around for two more seasons.
CBS Television Distribution has renewed talk show, “Rachael Ray,” through the 2015-2016 season for a total run of 10 seasons.
It will continue in 90 percent of the country, including on ABC Owned Television Stations in New York, Philadelphia and Raleigh, N.C, and stations from CBS Television Stations, Hearst, Post-Newsweek and Sinclair Broadcasting groups.
“‘Rachael Ray’ is one of the best brands in the business and our station clients and advertisers recognize that,” CBS TV Distribution’s president of sales, Joe DiSalvo said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to keep a talent like Rachael in the family and extend the show to 10 seasons.”
The two-time Emmy-winning show, produced in association with Harpo Productions, premiered in 2006 when it was the highest rated first-run talk show debut since “Dr. Phil” in 2002.
The renewal arrives as new entries into daytime talk, Telepictures’ Bethenny Frankel and Sony Pictures Television’s Queen Latifah’s shows are finding success in the post-Oprah Winfrey age.
