Tribune and The CW share revenues on the show, which got its start as a test on a few Tribune-owned stations and then expanded out to the entire group in 2011. Last fall, The CW and Tribune agreed to air the show on the network, with The CW keeping four minutes of advertising inventory in every show, and Tribune keeping ten.
"We are very pleased by the continued growth of The Bill Cunningham Show and look forward to a successful third season. Much of the show's success can be attributed to Bill's chemistry with the guests and audience members, and the hard work of our producers, whose selection of lively topics resonates with viewers," said Sean Compton, Tribune Broadcasting's president of programming and entertainment, in a statement.
ITV Studios America produces the show in front of a live studio audience at NEP Penn Studios in Manhattan.
The Bill Cunningham Show, a conflict talker along the lines of NBCUniversal's Maury or Jerry Springer, stars nationally syndicated radio host Bill Cunningham, and airs on The CW Monday through Friday at 3 p.m.
