The rating has been graceful for the 37-year-old's show as it was dubbed the No.1 new syndicated program. The average of 1.9 million viewers per episode has topped up NBC's viewer ratings among all the other broadcasting networks, while the show itself is fourth among all syndicated daytime talk shows in history.
"The Kelly Clarkson Show is connecting with viewers in a unique way and we are so happy to build on that momentum, bringing Kelly's brand of humor, heart, and, of course, the incredible 'Kellyoke', to stations for a second season," the executive vice president of creative affairs at NBCUniversal Television Distribution, Tracie Wilson, said in a statement.
