Bethenny Information

Bethenny is a syndicated American celebrity/lifestyle talk show that is hosted by reality TV personality, author, entrepreneur, and natural foods chef Bethenny Frankel, who also serves as co-producer and creator with Ellen DeGeneres. The series debuted as a summer test run on June 11, 2012 on six stations owned by Fox Television Stations Group, and is expected to go nationwide across the United States and Canada in 2013.


The series has Frankel offering a mix of celebrity interviews and lifestyle tips, geared to a female audience. Although her show has been compared to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in part due to having DeGeneres as a co-producer, Frankel dismisses the notion: "Ellen has her own fan base and a very different conversation with fans than I do. She's not trying to make this a show like hers."


The idea to bring Frankel to talk television had been in the planning stages in 2011, but disagreements over the series' concept and failure to clear the show in major television markets resulted in the project being shelved that November. But in January 2012 it received a second chance when the Fox Stations group approached Warner Bros. about testing the show out as a summer replacement for some of the syndicated programs that were canceled or ended production.

The series has gotten off to a good start, with the six stations posting better-than-expected numbers. Warner Bros. has already announced that once it finishes its six-week test run, it intends to put it on hiatus and syndicate it nationally for fall 2013. On July 6, 2012, Warner Bros. announced that Bethenny has been cleared by the entire Fox Television Stations Group, well ahead of the September 2013 launch.
