Nate Berkus will no longer be showcasing his interior design chops on the Oprah Network after Harpo Productions and Sony announced that the show would not be renewed for the 2012-2013 season.
In a joint statement the company’s announced:
“After careful consideration, we have decided that ‘The Nate Berkus Show’ will not return for a third season in the fall. We are grateful for the hard work and heart that Nate, [executive producer] Corin Nelson and their entire team have poured into the show, and we’re very proud of what they’ve delivered.”
Along with his interior designs Nate also interviewed celebrity guests and conducted various interviews in a strange hodgepodge of show segments.
News of the cancellation shouldn’t come as a surprise, last year the New York Post reported that Oprah was upset by the shows dismal 1.2 million daily viewers.
While some reviews said his show was unfocused Berkus said he was happy of what he and his staff produced, stating:
“I’m incredibly proud of my hard working and talented staff, and proud of the show we were able to produce every day.”
The Nate Berkus show is a unique miss for Oprah who launched the daytime talk careers of Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray and Dr. Oz. All three of those talk show hosts debuted with top-rated shows.
Are you surprised that the Nate Berkus show has been cancelled.
