NBC’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show” is returning for a second season. The popular series, which is the top new daytime show this season, has been renewed through 2021 by NBCUniversal. The hourlong syndicated daytime show airs in 100% of the country on more than 200 stations and has been one of the standouts in NBC’s daytime lineup. “The Kelly Clarkson Show” celebrated its first show on September 9th, and since then, the talk show brought in bigger ratings than any other newcomer in daytime. The show also had the strongest start to any new first-run strip in seven years with an average of 1.9M viewers per episode. The show is currently in fourth place among syndicated daytime talk shows, and the other have been on the air for decades. In digital, the show’s social platforms have gained more than 1.5 million subscribers since September.

“‘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,” said Tracie Wilson, Executive Vice President, Creative Affairs, NBCUniversal Television Distribution. “It is a privilege to be in business with Kelly and our production team, led by Alex Duda, who have a clear creative vision and a talent for storytelling and creating quality entertainment that invites you in for a good time and leaves you feeling happy.”

Clarkson kicks off each episode with “Kellyoke,” a segment where she covers a recent or classic song by artists that her audience feels a connection to. “Kellyoke” covers include “Juice” by Lizzo, “Think” by Aretha Franklin, Taylor Swift’s “Delicate” and “Alone” by Heart, among others. After the performance, Clarkson interviews a panel of guests that includes a mix of celebrities and everyday people. Some notable celebrity guests include Chance the Rapper, John Cena, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Garner, Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, John Legend, Jay Leno, Jason Momoa, Tyler Perry, Blake Shelton and others. She has also performed duets with multiple guests, including Garth Brooks, Cyndi Lauper and Ben Platt.

Segments range from doing the first-ever original “American Idol” reunion show, featuring Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Justin Guarini, to giving back to everyday community heroes. In her first week on air, she helped to transform the lives of music teachers across the country with a Universal Studios “Tram of Dreams” surprise. “Good Neighbor,” “Rad Human” and #WhatI’ mLiking segments shine the spotlight on veterans, foster care and local heroes beating the odds.
