It’s about freakin’ time, right? After a successful test run this summer, ‘The Real’ will return permanently Fall 2014. The one-hour daily talk show, hosted by Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, tested in seven markets (New York (WNYW), Los Angeles (KTTV), Washington D.C. (WTTG), Philadelphia (WTXF), Phoenix (KSAZ), Houston (KRIV) and Tampa (WTVT)).
Today, Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, released the following statement:
This summer, the daytime landscape in seven Fox markets was dramatically altered when the women of ‘The Real’ exploded on to the air. The Real’ brought viewers a unique combination of elements that were missing from daytime, a real, multi-cultural conversation about issues that women of all ages are talking about. Daytime viewers from across the nation tuned in everyday to share in the fun, authentic, energetic and wonderfully outrageous hour that is ‘The Real’ experience. We are very excited to be bring this distinctive unique series to stations for the Fall of 14.
