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.

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

      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.

      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.

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