How To Woo Potential Guests For A Talk Show, According To Nate Berkus!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsMartha StewartWendy Williams


Wow! He certainly has a 'take no prisoners' attitude, doesn't he?!

Apparently, Nate Berkus was so bent on securing a specific (but unindentified) celebrity as a guest on his daytime talk show, that he had no problem throwing his competition - Martha Stewart and Wendy Williams - under the bus as a ploy to win them over!

Check out some HIGHlights from a pitch letter that he sent their people (below)!

It reads:


·Nate delivers more than one million more viewers than Martha's Hallmark show. Nate averages about 1.2 million total viewers so far this season, while Martha's talk show averages only about 220,000 total viewers.


·This November, Nate delivers a 0.6 rating among Women 25-54, building its time periods from a 0.5 base, up +20 percent over last November.

·Wendy Williams also delivers a 0.6 rating among Women 25-54, but that is down from its time periods' 0.7 last year, -14 percent.


clASSy move, bb!

The real question is, however, if the kind of people to whom he sends that kind of pitch actually respond positively to it! Personally, we'd find it a little tacky!

    Can't rag on this guy. He really is a self made man unlike 90% of Hollywood and the Donald.

    This homosexual man is the reason why the world stereotypes Homosexuals..his girly hand gestures, feminine voice, his spray on tan, his ability to hang drapes and his lambskins falling out of his frilly pockets. What a disgusting example of a man that obviously lays with other horrible humans in an attempt to be mainstream…with out Oprah he would be dancing on a bar in West Hollywood.

    Nate fails to deliver tact or respect, and let him not forget that Martha and Wendy delivered themselves to television audiences, while Oprah delivered Nate.

    I'm not a Martha fan only because domestic schtick isn't my thing, but I enjoy Wendy's show when I can catch her (and I believe that Wendy even had the little creep on her show!). Nate's show is an awkward, boring snore.

    wonder if that was approved by OPRAH? since she's in charge of his show the same way she is of Dr Phil and Rachel Ray and Dr Oz

    i enjoyed him on oprah the few times i saw him on her show. that being said, i watched his show a couple times to check it out. it was awful. his voice is very whiney and u really notice it when he has an entire hour to himself. his hand gestures are not attractive. the show jumps all over the place with not enough time devoted to anything. he seems very awkward. some people just cant handle their own show and he is one of them. i wont be suprised if it gets canceled.

    Berkus is no "competition" for Martha Stewart - he's of no relevance to her. His pitch with bogus numbers shows the pip-squeak's problem - too big for his britches. Liza Minelli would be a terrific guest on the Martha Stewart Show - viewers would see her in a fun, interesting, and informative show.
