The talk show, which stars comedienne Kathy Griffin, premiered on April 19 to just 987,000 viewers and a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.
"Bravo's relationship with Kathy Griffin has outlasted Katie and Tom's, Ashton and Demi's and while we won't be couch jumping, we continue to be in awe of her quick wit, rude humor and spot-on analysis of pop culture and celebrity happenings," said Frances Berwick, president, Bravo Media LLC and Style. "The first season of Kathy struck a chord with our educated, upscale viewers with its fresh new approach to not-letting-anyone-get-away with-anything TV."
Kathy features Griffin and a panel of civilians and celebrities commenting on the week's most talked about moments. The show is produced by Donut Run and Embassy Row for Bravo with Kathy Griffin and Michael Davies serving as executive producers.
"Look, I don't know what the hell's gonna happen in season two of Kathy, I'm still sore from season one," said Griffin. "It's kind of like 'not Martha Stewart' meets 'not at all Ellen' meets a lot of negative energy. Last season I had every one on my couch from Jane Fonda to Chelsea Handler to Anderson Cooper to my dog walker. Just sit back and laugh. I'll do all the embarrassing stuff...oh, and I'm nominated for an Emmy."
