The Closest Nate Berkus Will Come To Admitting His Show Is Awful

It’s not like Nate Berkus can come out and say that the original concept for his daytime talk show — “bring celebrities on the set and have them talk about sconces and end tables” — was a complete failure. But at least he’s being honest that his show, which is suffering for viewers, is being rebooted.

“There’s never been a show like my show,” Berkus insists, in a manner where I can’t tell whether he means “about home design” or “this bad.” “What’s changed since the beginning is that we’re learning from our mistakes. There are certain things that are cringeworthy that I see when we first started [Ed: Like this and this], and then there are things that I’m really proud of [Ed: Like this].”
