Bethenny Frankel Talk Show Gets Full Pick Up

Bethenny Frankel apparently did a nice showing during her talk show's six-week trial run. On Monday's episode of Ellen, the former reality star announced Bethenny has been picked up. Executive Producer Ellen DeGeneres stated:

We are not going to give a lot of details, because we can’t. But, it is safe to say she will be on television soon. The television show will be back on the air.

Bethenny's trial run debuted in Fox markets in Dallas (KDWF at 1 PM), Los Angeles (KTTV 2 PM),  Minneapolis (KMSP 10 AM), New York (WNYW 11 AM), Philadelphia, (11 AM) and Phoenix (KSAZ 11 AM). According to Celebuzz, the show tested highly in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Minneapolis.   Watch Frankel and DeGeneres discuss their good news after the jump!

    I barely lasted the first week of her crass, gawdawful show. More power to her for her fans, and at least there’s one less hour of television I’m going to have to watch.

    Incidentally, I didn’t get the feeling from watching her on Ellen that any deal has been made for a “full pick up”. Back on the air could mean anything. No carrier was mentioned, so are they shopping it elsewhere? Is it possible that Bethenny might be pitched to affiliates at NATPE as a summer replacement for Ellen (instead of airing Ellen reruns through the summer)? The way Ellen carefully worded what she said, I think it’s a little premature for Frankel fans to be popping champagne corks just yet.

    Bethenny’s show was AWFUL! I couldn’t watch it the first time around…won’t watch it when it comes back. It will probably replace one of the new talkers when they go off the air. (Jeff Probst, anyone?)

    She made me nervous because she is so hyper that I had to turn her off. . That’s the end of her marriage that’s for sure. Her husband’s family is from PA. Maybe if she were to shoot it in NYC the marriage may have a chance. She made millions selling her Skinnygirl Marguerita yet she still wants more. She seems way too nervous for so much commotion in her life. One day she may be sorry.
