'Tyra Banks Show' Moves Its Fierce Self to The CW
The talk show will air back-to-back episodes on weekdays
"The Tyra Banks Show" will move to The CW next September, the network announced Friday (Nov. 21).
The syndicated hourlong talk show will air back-to-back episodes on weekday afternoons from 3-5 p.m., replacing court program "Judge Jeanine Pirro" and reruns of "The Wayans Bros." and "The Jamie Foxx Show." "Tyra" has been airing in syndication for four seasons.
So this means that there will be triple the Tyra, adding the double-shot of talk show goodness to the already established prime time reality competition show " America's Next Top Model," which just wrapped its 11th cycle Wednesday.
"I'm thrilled to have 'The Tyra Banks Show' join The CW, where I already have an amazing partnership and where my audience knows to look for me," says Banks. "With 'Top Model' in primetime and 'The Tyra Banks Show' in daytime, it's a match made in heaven."
Network COO John Maatta adds, "The addition of 'The Tyra Banks Show' to The CW's Monday through Friday afternoon block further unifies our brand as a destination for women and serves as the ideal companion to bridge daytime and primetime, for our network and our affiliated stations."
Banks was recently honored by Glamour magazine as one of its Women of the Year for 2008.
