Kelly Clarkson is staying in the talk show business as NBCUniversal has decided to renew “The Kelly Clarkson Show” for a syndicated second season. The early renewal comes as the show delivered stellar numbers for the network since it premiered this past September.

NBCUniversal made the decision to pick up the daytime talk show after it performed to strong ratings over its first two months, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"'The Kelly Clarkson Show' is connecting with viewers in a unique way, and we are so happy to build on that momentum, bringing Kelly’s brand of humor, heart, and, of course, the incredible 'Kellyoke,' to stations for a second season," Tracie Wilson, NBCUniversal’s EVP of Creative Affairs, said in a statement. “It is a privilege to be in business with Kelly and our production team, led by Alex Duda, who have a clear creative vision and a talent for storytelling and creating quality entertainment that invites you in for a good time and leaves you feeling happy.”

As noted by the outlet, the show has been averaging 1.9 million viewers every day, numbers which are considered high for a syndicated talk show in its first year. Overall, “The Kelly Clarkson Show” ranks fourth among veteran shows “Dr. Phil,” “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show." In total, Clarkson’s talk show went ahead of the curve as the biggest launch in eight years.

The former “American Idol” star has a unique format to her show isn’t like most daytime programs. She starts off with a “Kellyoke” segment that has her sing a cover song chosen by the audience. Her performances are accompanied by her touring band, who are housed in a barn-like studio to show her connection to her country roots. Afterward, the show would feature segments showcasing everyday people's remarkable storie and play host to celebrity guests.

The show aired as a replacement for Steve Harvey’s eponymous talk show after it was canceled in June, reports Variety. “The Kelly Clarkson Show” airs nationwide on over 200 stations.
