‘Karamo’ Gets Season 2 Renewal After Increase in Viewers

Karamo has been renewed for a second season in national syndication following an 18 percent increase in viewership over the past few months, NBCUniversal announced Thursday.

“Karamo is a charismatic television personality who has resonated with viewers in his premiere season,” Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios and E! News, said in a statement.

Wilson added that host Karamo Brown brings a “fresh” voice to the daytime TV landscape.

“Drawing from his unique experience as a social service worker, author and father, he brings a fresh perspective with creative ideas for every show. We’re thrilled to bring another season to the daytime audience,” Wilson said.

Brown is an author, actor, and activist, who rose to national prominence as a culture expert on Netflix’s Queer Eye.

“I’m beyond excited for a second season where we will continue to bring the audience compelling stories, helping everyday people have life-changing breakthroughs,” Brown stated. “NBCUniversal Syndication Studios and the station groups have been so supportive and I’m so thankful to them. As an openly gay and Black man hosting a syndicated daytime talk show, this means so much to me, but also to a community that often isn’t represented.”

Brown’s conflict talk show addresses a wide range of topics, including infidelity, DNA mysteries, and complex family dynamics. The show also features a segment called “Unlock The Phone,” where guests enlist Karamo’s investigative team to uncover their partners’ cell phone history to identify potential infidelities.

The freshman program is currently cleared in 85 percent of the country and airs on leading station groups, including Nexstar, Weigel, Tegna, Sunbeam, Hearst, Sinclair, Capitol, Mission Broadcasting and more.

Karamo has been averaging about 600,000 daily viewers in 2023, marking an 18 percent improvement over its performance in fall 2022.

Kerry Shannon executive produces and Gloria Harrison-Hall is co-executive producer.

The show is distributed by NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, and produced by Stamford Studios Production, the same production team behind NBCU talk shows The Steve Wilkos Show, The Jerry Springer Show, Judge Jerry and Maury.
