Another Gay Gets a TV Talk Show: Oprah’s Nate Berkus Coming Next Fall


Continuing the trend of gays and blacks running talk television (see: Wanda Sykes, Ellen), Oprah‘s home decorator-cum-household name Nate Berkus is getting his own syndicated chat fest.s He joins The O’s Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz as Oprah’s syndicated spin-offs, highlighting her winning strategy of using her own program to create insta-stars. And if Oprah opts to move her own namesake show to her struggling-to-launch OWN channel next year, she’s quickly filling the buffer to keep a presence in the syndication market.

    I’d probably watch him… er I mean the show.

  • GeoffM

    Nate is an amazing guy. Not sure if he can carry a show, but I just think he’s fantastic.

  • foothillsduo

    Another talk show? OH WAIT! It’s Nate!! WOOF!!

  • yousobad

    I can’t keep up with these O-stars. Who’s next? The lady who lost her face when the chimp attacked?

    I’d watch that show only because I like when people on TV black out their faces. I’m a sucker for humility, unlike O.

  • seanboy

    if he could have carried a show they would have launched him years ago. is the show going to be all about interior decorating?

  • SouLKid

    I love Nate. I hope they show it overseas.

  • JonathanHasHadIt

    Ugh, please, first Wanda Sykes and her abominable show, and now another one of Okra’s minions. It’s too much. Get me outta here.

  • LiberalBitch

    now he’s selling his schlock on HSN, and laughing all the way to the bank. Can’t stand Oprah and her posse.
