Kelly Clarkson has proven to the world that she is a singer who can also do talk shows, and she is doing pretty well at it.
Since the premiere of "The Kelly Clarkson Show" on Sept. 9, 2019, the "A Moment Like This Singer" was able to keep the ratings high than what people expected it to be the first time they announced it.
Clarkson seemed to have a "secret formula" aside from starting the show with a song number -- famously dubbed as "Kellyoke" (where she covers pop and classic songs) -- and her engagement with her audience by talking about wide-range of topics, from relationships to personal problems.
Before starting the "The Kelly Clarkson Show", she sought for pieces of advice from the most successful presenters like Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres, whose shows are among the most-watched TV programs up to this day
The "Breakaway" songstress opened up to Fallon, saying that talking and communicating with people are her leisure activities and she turned them into her strengths now. In fact, she was compared to him right after the first episode and her fans told her that she was a better talk show host than Fallon.
Aside from Fallon, she was also compared to Rosie O'Donnell who has a six-season-old show. The "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" host is renowned for being "excited" to have guests on her show, which is the same quality that Clarkson has been successfully displaying since day one.
Her style in conversing with her guests, as well as with the live audiences, drew more viewers than expected.
During the episode 1 premiere, with Dwayne Johnson as guest, the 'Fast and Furious' actor didn't have a hard time talking to Clarkson and easily shared his intimate wedding photos with wife Lauren Hashian. The Rock even told stories about his everyday life with his wife!
The discussion between the actor and singer was smooth-sailing and doesn't feel forced and scripted compared to other shows, and it was all thanks to Clarkson being so natural. The studio, in fact, almost felt like home because of her.
According to media consultant Bill Carroll, "The Kelly Clarkson Show" brought success to daytime TV after years of being silent. He also added that if the show can maintain its ratings, it will turn into a long-term success that the singer deserves.
With the Clarkson show's ratings being noteworthy right now, its current number of viewers is almost impossible to beat for a daytime TV show.
Based on Nielsen Data, the show has now an average of 1.9 million viewers per episode, which makes Clarkson stand in fourth place of the most-watched daytime talk shows. What makes it even more notable and outstanding is the fact that the show was produced and distributed by NBCUniversal Television, who is the brain and heart behind the most successful talk shows including "Ellen" and "Live with Kelly and Ryan."
"The Kelly Clarkson Show" is a breakthrough that aims to interact with "everyday people" and celebrities through Clarkson's way of storytelling. It also aims to help charities, communities and the less fortunate, so fans can easily connect and watch with a purpose
