Fox TV still considering picking up Bethenny Frankel's 'Bethenny' talk show


UPI News Service, 07/07/2012 

Fox TV said it is still considering picking up a new syndicated television talk show starring former "Real Housewife" Bethenny Frankel.

A network representative Friday denied media reports that Fox had decided to pull the trigger on "Bethenny" and add it to its 2013 lineup.

"A decision has not yet been made," the spokesperson said.

"Bethenny" is four weeks into a six-week trial run, and Fox insisted no decisions would be made until the full run is completed.

The Hollywood Reporter said it has been so far, so good for Frankel. Ratings have been better than the 2008 test of "The Wendy Williams Show," which may have stoked the buzz that led to premature reports the show was being picked up by Fox TV.

Some sources maintained the future of "Bethenny" was a foregone conclusion, citing solid ratings in the New York and Los Angeles markets and among women ages 18-49.

THR noted potential headwinds for "Bethenny" include the syndication of "Broke Girls," "Mike and Molly" and "Anger Management," which are slated to begin in 2014 and could provide stiff competition for weekday time slots.
