The Kelly Clarkson show is off to a great start.
Her new talk show on NBC earned a respectable 1.9 household rating across primary runs in the metered markets. Numbers like that make Kelly’s NBC talk show the highest daytime debut in the past seven years. Kelly does have the advantage of airing during NBC’s 2pm slot which leads into the beloved Ellen show.
Speaking of Ellen, she has taped an interview for Kelly’s show, along with Jennifer Garner, John Legend, and late night legend Jay Leno. Kevin Hart was supposed to be her first guest, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson filled in after Kevin’s car accident.
Kelly Clarkson airs at 2pm on NBC affiliated networks.
