Tribune has acquired Ricki Lake for WPIX New York at 4 p.m., and on seven other stations, while Fox picked up the show for its owned stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas. Ricki also has been acquired by stations in the Sinclair, Local TV, Post-Newsweek, Fisher, Granite, New Vision, Journal, Citadel, Quincy and Gray broadcasting groups.
"Less than a year away from debut, anticipation continues to build with television viewers and the station community for Ricki Lake's fresh, new talk show return," said Paul Franklin, Twentieth Television's executive vice president and general sales manager of broadcast, in a statement. "Focusing on topics significant to women, we are thrilled that Ricki will bring daily conversation and her relatable spirit to this impressive group of stations."
While the show is cleared on some Tribune stations, which feature conflict talkers for most of the day, Ricki Lake will be more of a traditional talk show, taking on topics that interest daytime's key demographic, 25-to-54 year-old women.
"I want to spark ideas and conversations and inspire people to take active roles in their communities, relationships and their well-being," said Lake in a statement. "I have definitely grown as a person since I put down the mic in 2005, and I couldn't be happier to share and continue the journey with both my existing fans and an entirely new generation of women."
The Ricki Lake Show is produced by Monet Lane Productions.
