Syndicated daytime talker The Nate Berkus Show will end its run at the end of this season, its second. The show, hosted by Oprah Winfrey protege Nate Berkus, is produced by Winfrey’s Harpo Studios and Sony Pictures TV. “After careful consideration, we have decided that The Nate Berkus Show will not return for a third season in the fall,” the two companies said in a joint statement. “We are grateful for the hard work and heart that Nate, (exec producer) Corin Nelson and their entire team have poured into the show, and we’re very proud of what they’ve delivered.” The end of Nate Berkus, first reported by Broadcasting & Cable, comes two years into a three-year deal with the show’s core NBC station group. The group has already committed to two new talk shows for fall hosted by Jeff Probst and Steve Harvey. Nate Berkus never took off in the ratings, averaging 1.4 million viewers this season. “I’m incredibly proud of my hard working and talented staff, and proud of the show we were able to produce every day,” Berkus said in a statement.
