'The Real' talk show gets a reality check with pickup for 2014
"The Real," the syndicated daytime series that brought a distinctive young cultural flavor to the daytime talk show during a trial run last summer, has been given a greenlight for a pickup next fall.
The show, which was hosted by Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, scored solid ratings in its four-week run.
Frank Cicha, senior vice president of programming for Fox Television Stations, which produces and distributes the series, said in a statement, "We're all looking for younger adults and this program delivered big time."
"The Real" will be the third daytime talkfest to feature an all-female panel. The other shows are ABC's"The View" and CBS' "The Talk."
