‘Sherri’ Is The No. 2 Most-Watched Daytime Talk Show Among Women 25-54
Sherri Shepherd is doing pretty well among women viewers since replacing Wendy Williams in the daytime talk space.
The Sherri show is currently reigning as the No. 2 most-watched daytime talk show among women 25-54, The Wrap reports. Nielsen ratings from early this month show that the Sherri show averaged a 0.35 rating among women 25-54 and a 6.13 share in the same demo.
Beating out Sherri is “Live With Kelly and Mark,” which received a 0.47 rating and an 8.36 share, while The Jennifer Hudson Show came in third place with a 0.23 rating and a 3.84 share. It’s the second month in a row where Sherri held down the No. 2 spot among adults 25-54 and women 25-54.
It reflects growth for Sherri as the show was coming in at the No. 3 spot during its 2022 debut.
“Sherri’s recent climb in the ratings, hitting a 33-week high in the most recent national ratings with a .74 in HH – and coming off its two best metered-markets of the season – is indicative of the ascension we’ve seen this season,” Debmar-Mercury EVP of Programming Lonnie Burstein said of ‘the show’s national numbers.
“This is illustrated by ‘Sherri’ now being the No. 2 ranked show in the advertiser-coveted women 25-54 and adults 25-54 demographics.”
However, The Jennifer Hudson Show beats out Sherri among the women 18-34 demo with a 0.111 rating, behind Live with Kelly and Mark, while Sherri comes in third place with a 0.110 rating.
In September, Shepherd announced new changes coming to the show after firing all the producers who were left over from The Wendy Williams Show.
She also teased the celebs she would love to have as guests on her talk show.
“It has not changed. Trevor Noah, Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and that guy that she’s married to (Barack Obama) and I would love Beyonce. And maybe we need Jason Momoa.”
