Trisha Goddard Renewed Season 2Trisha Goddard joins NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution‘s other freshman daily syndicated talk show, Steve Harvey, with a renewal for a second season in national syndication. Unlike Steve Harvey, which has been a breakout hit, Trisha Goddard has been the lowest-rated among the new syndicated talk shows this season, partly because the show started in far-less-trafficked time slots. Since its debut, the one-hour talk show has been upgraded in major markets including Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, Phoenix, Las Vegas and more. That has helped Trisha grow in the ratings since its debut while also improving its time periods. In the November 2012 sweep, the show’s viewership increased 23% vs. its premiere week. The conflict talk show, executive produced by Paul Faulhaber and hosted by TV personality Goddard, has been renewed in more than 85% of the country. Trisha Goddard is distributed in national syndication by NBCU and produced by Stamford Media Center Prods, the company behind long-running NBCU talk shows Maury, The Jerry Springer Show and The Steve Wilkos Show. Trisha Goddard joins Steve Harvey and Katie as the only freshman talk shows so far to be locked in for next season.
