Tyra Banks’ Daytime Emmy-winning talk show will be taken out of syndication and moved to the CW for its fifth season, which is scheduled to begin in September 2009, reports Variety.
The shift places “The Tyra Banks Show” with her other programs “America’s Next Top Model” and “Stylista” all within the CW family.
“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,” Banks said in a statement Friday. “With ‘Top Model’ in prime-time and ‘The Tyra Banks Show’ in daytime, it’s a match made in heaven.”
The cover girl’s chatfest won a Daytime Emmy earlier this year for Outstanding Talk Show/Informative. Her upcoming reality show “True Beauty,” with co-executive producer Ashton Kutcher, is set to debut Monday, Jan. 5 on ABC.
Meanwhile, Wednesday’s victory of McKey Sullivan as “America’s Next Top Model” drew 4.8 million viewers, the show’s largest audience in a year. At 9, “Stylista” attracted 2.1 million, earning its best numbers since the season premiere.
