Oprah's New Nate Berkus Show Floundering In The Ratings

| Filed under: TV NewsOprah Winfrey

Nate Berkus new show getting poor ratings

Opes! Make some time for Nate!

He needs you!

Though Nate Berkus' show had a strong start last month when it premiered, his ratings are fading fast and industry people are wondering if he can hold onto his show for much longer.

The promising interior designer, a discipline of Oprah Winfrey herself, finds himself dragging behind the likes of Nancy Grace, with a lackluster turn out of only 1.2 million viewers. One industry analysts reviewed:

"Berkus is likeable, but he pings from decorating to mommy bloggers to saving money to auction tips with the occasional celebrity appearance, making it difficult to discern the show's true identity."

We say, get Oprah on STAT!

A few appearances from the Big O and you'll be back on top in no time!

    He's so cute and personable, but his show sucks. Nate, if you like younger guys, let's me know. I'm into it. Big dick here.

    It's the curse I put on him for not responding to my email back in 2003!

    His show truly sucks. He was so much more real and easy going when he was on Oprah. I've tried a few times to watch the show cuz I know he's a nice man but he truly comes across so different then he did On Oprah's show. They've attempted to turn him into this incredibly fake over enthusiastic game show host sort of persona and it's nothing but awkward & very uncomfortable to watch trying to be like that. They need to completely rework this show cuz it is all over the place.

    Boringest show in the history of Television!

    Not everything Oprah touches turn into gold…I remember Oprah's BFF Gayle King having her own show The Gayle King Show in 1997 but was canceled right away b/c of low ratings. What Nate has on his show is something you can watch on HGTV…he's also goes into women's fashion which he knows nothing about. This is a sad thing for me to say but he may need to create drama or controversy in order to make ratings b/c that's why shows like Jersey Shore or Real Housewives have very high ratings…even Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz every now and then have controversial topics on their show that's why they're still on the air.

    good

    He's up against Dr Oz (another Oprah spinoff) who is pretty unbeatable here in the northeast.

    Have you seen it, It is horrible………….



  11. 11

    ANOTHER NOBODY THAT THE INDUSTRY IS TRYING TO SHOVE DOWN PEOPLE`S THROATS.

    I believe the word you're looking for is Disciple, not Discipline. Perez, please contact me you need a proofreader, and I need a job!!!

    I watch sometimes because he is so damn cute. However, the production of the show is trying to make Nate into something he is not comfortable with. He looks forced… and the topics are lame.
    He would be better with a weekly show on HGTV without an audience; just decorating.
    Also, there should be a new drinking game: take a shot for every time he uses the word "literally".



  14. 14

    What do you mean "We say, get Oprah on STAT!"??? What does a HUGE DYKE know about decorating???



  15. 15

    I LOVE him . . . on Oprah. His show . . . it's just not good yet. I want to see him transforming crappy apartments into gems, making dull living rooms cool, organizing chaotic homes into peaceful retreats, etc.



  16. 16

    A "discipline of Oprah Winfreys" ?
    This site has something all the other gossip sites dont have,
    a seven yr old proof reader.

    The show is so ridiculous; they are making Nate do & say things not even a gay man would ever do!



  18. 18

    I love Nate and its awesome that he is the first openly gay daytime talkshow host. I was very excited when I heard the news about the show since following him on Oprah for years. I agree with most of the comments that he appears not as (one of Oprah's fav. words) authentic as he does when doing his segments on Oprah. His fake nod/wink that he constantly gives to the camera is quite nauseating. The show itself is boring and I feel really dumbed down. Maybe people are getting tired of "O"'s favortie things such as Nate.
    Will be interesting to see how many people tune into OWN when it debuts in Jan? Nate be yourself and stop being a puppet for Sony Pictures! People know when something is real or fake!



  19. 19

    I must say, I tried to watch the show a couple of times. The analyst's comments are spot on. I like his decorating, but all the mommy crap sucks! Nate, stick to decorating and room makeovers….. that will save your show! Please stop the auction crap too!

    Re: GetSerious – LOL! I thought I was the only person who noticed how many times he uses that word!!!



  21. 21

    Um never heard of him, xecpet his girlfriend died in the tsunami or he kielled her or something.
    I thought he was dead



  22. 22

    LOVE HIM….but his show is a little too all over the place for me I hope that he can pull it together and quickly too. I have tickets to a taping next month and I would like to see something solid.

    Re: katbaleu – i was going to write something similar to what u wrote but u beat me to it. i might also add that the show is kind of all over the place with no main topic. its a bit amatourish. also there is something kind of irritating about his voice that was not noticeable on his guest spots on oprah but is very noticeable when watchig him for a full hour. its just not a good show and i cant see it lasting long at all.

    Re: gerry in sf – yes, the gayle king show was absalutely horrendouse. i remember thinking how lucky gayle king was for having oprah as her best friend because she has absalutely nothing to offer.



  27. 27

    I watched a little of his show… he is JUST NOT LIKABLE on his own show…not genuine. He presents himself as am I gay, or am I straight, or am I gay, or am I straight, am I a man, or am I a woman, am I a man, or am I a woman? He is trying to hard…. fake. Or maybe its his tooo styled hair that does not move, or maybe its is eyes that are set to far apart. Nate needs to stick to appearances on Oprah, he is great in small doses…"Hey look at me I design great curtains..", it sucks having to watch him for an entire show.."Hey look I can also design an entire room, bake, talk to a celebrity, look concerned, overly interested, and read a book."



  28. 28

    Not a good show. It needs to go away. Waste of air space. So what if it's an Oprah project. Let her get another one.

    Boring…
