The Inevitable Demise of The Bonnie Hunt Show

Why you shouldn't expect to see this show much longer

JOSSIP REPORTS — Testing out a new talk show is an expensive pursuit. A production company has to convince hundreds of local TV networks to carry the show, they've got to book a studio, cast invite audience members, and then sign a host to a contract that might include paying her even if the show gets canceled halfway through the season. And it's a risky bet, because more often than not, the show is going to bomb when viewers fail to show up. Need we mention: Megan Mullally, Jane Pauley, Sharon Osbourne, Tony Danza.

But then there's the upside, which we could describe, or just say: Ellen. When a daytime talk show hits, it hits big. That's what Lifetime is hoping by giving Carson Kressley his own talker. And Oprah, the queen of daytime, knows the formula well. Having already gone through grooming head doc Phil McGraw for his own show, she's now getting medic Dr. Oz one for himself.

This year, Warner Bros. took a bet on Bonnie Hunt, the actress who had nothing better going on. And like the middle aged white ladies and Tiny Dancer before her, it's probably going to end in flames.

There's no one problem with The Bonnie Hunt Show. It premiered Sept. 8, with guest Robin Williams, and was bleh. It's been bleh ever since. The show is bland, does not stand out, and in our limited viewing of it, we've seen what amounts to a terrible recycling of the daytime talker format. And Hunt meets every criteria we looked at last year when it comes to can sink a daytime host.

And it shows. "Her average rating the last three weeks is 0.8—that is not a misprint," says a source (who relieved us from having to look up the Nielsen numbers ourselves). And in Los Angeles, the second largest TV market outside New York Metro and where the show is taped, Bonnie Hunt's rating is a 0.1. So embarrassed by the ratings, Warner Bros. wouldn't even release them, sending them back for "reprocessing" to delay the inevitable bad news. When they got the numbers back, then sent them for reprocessing a second time.

On set, nobody is pretending the sun is shining. "Everyone at the Bonnie Hunt Show knows it is doomed to fail," says a witness. "Ask the make-up people, the camera guys, the junior producers who are already sending out their resumes. It drives me crazy that these Warner Brothers execs (and other TV execs for that matter) think that the only people who are at home during daytime are willing to accept these dumb, emptyheaded shows. Well, the daytime audience is simply turning off the tv and going to the Internet. When was the last time these Warner Brothers guys had a big hit? And I don't count Ellen. More people watch Bill O'Reilly on cable every day than watch Ellen. And that's sad."

Hah! Our own source doesn't even consider Ellen a success. Lord! What about The Tyra Banks Show? That's a Warner Bros. vehicle that's doing decent, no?

Meanwhile, Dr. Oz's show is on the way, and radio host Wendy Williams' trial run on daytime exceeded expectations, and she's going national.

So we stand by our thesis: Daytime talk shows are for black women and the gays. Straight white women? Stick to running for vice president.

This woman is a funny as a gynie and/or prostate exam. Why do they keep giving her opportunities to eff up? They made Wendy Williams to practically do backflips in order to get picked up and she had a ready-made audience thanks to her success on radio and as an author.

Bonnie Hunt in 2012. Sounds like a plan. Thanks to Palin, the bar has been set mighty low.

bonnie hunt's show is fabulous. it is an absolute antidote to the crassless trite idiocy that is on television now. nobody yells at each other ("the view"), nobody has to pass a dna test ("maury"), nobody has to spend close to 4 minutes dancing to a DJ ("ellen")…and bonnie hunt herself is hysterical. perhaps the show should be aired at a roughly set time nationwide rather than being in radically different time spots all over the country.

bonnie is brilliant and more people need to be watching her show! and no, i don't work for the show or am not related to anyone who works for the show. i'm just a regular fan who thinks bonnie is great.

I have been watching The Bonnie Hunt Show since week one. I have never tired of it. Just when you get the impression she might be a little one note, with all that super sweetness about kids and family(which is very endearing), she pulls out a zinger that might make a sailor blush! I say to everyone…"Watch The Bonnie Hunt Show!". Enjoy the the great chemistry between her and her fellow cast and guest stars. I DVR the show and watch it daily. If you start to do that as well, you won't be disappointed!

I love Bonnie Hunt's show. It is lighthearted and fun. I stopped watching late night talk shows ages ago, because the hosts are too political. I loved watching Johnny Carson because you didn't know his political party affiliation. His show was entertaining and he cared about his audience.

THe BOnnie Hunt show is fabulous. She is a gifted story teller and a wonderful conversationalist. People need to give the show a chance. She is truly funny. She reminds me of the kid in school who would have everyone laughing with her quick & funny remarks. This country is going through a real crisis. We need THe BOnnie Hunt Show to take our minds off of the unpleasantness for just an hour. My 18 year old daughter watches the tape of the show with me every evening. She thinks the mom from Beethoven is the funniest person on television.
To BOnnie Hunt and her talented crew–keep up the great work!

I have to admit to liking The Bonnie Hunt Show and TiVoing it daily. She is funny and quick-witted and the thing that makes it stand out is Bonnie herself. She's got a great heart and it really comes across on the screen. Bonnie's show is much better than Megan Mullally's short-lived talk show (and I absolutely love Megan so that's a hard thing for me to say or write). I'm hoping Bonnie stays on the air at least through the spring so she gets a chance to have people find her. This show needed more promotion because I'm a big Bonnie fan but just found out about it a couple of days before it began airing.

Wow. I can't believe how mean-spirited this post is. It saddens me that no one can recognize true talent anymore. What happened to the days when humor gleaned from everyday life was appreciated?

Bonnie Hunt takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary just like every other true comic out there. It's so disheartening when kindness, warmth, and intelligence are rewarded by catty and condescending remarks. Also, you admitted that your viewing was limited, so perhaps you should give it another chance. Her show has more of an unscripted format and relies on the spontaneous wit and humor of the host rather than a canned joke every two minutes. If you watched it regularly you would see this.

Granted, initial ratings may have been low, but I have faith they will improve over time. The show is valuable and needs to remain on T.V. If there are any execs reading this, please keep this show on daytime!

Ok, she's a person who you really like or don't like. but i find she's one of the funniest women out there. Her show isn't perfect, but it's real.

I Know that while writing this, u honestly felt that ur own opinion mattered. thats fine, but there are people that love her. a bad talk show would be someone off the street. i mean there are such odd ways to look at talk shows. the ones that last are with the ODDEST People. i mean, oprah, came from nothing. ellen is an expection, shes awesome. but tyra?

I think the Bonnie Hunt Show is better than anything else that daytime TV has to offer. It is an especially refreshing alternative to The View which has become far too political to be considered entertainment. Bonnie Hunt is delightful. She is smart and funny and compassionate and humble. It would be a shame to write off her show before it even has a chance, which is what this article has done.

I simply adore Bonnie Hunt's personality and she's pretty nice looking too. I always enjoy when she is on Letterman's show because of her witty sense of humor. However, her show is not that entertaining and I'm surprised it's lasted this long. And that's not to be mean-spirited but rather factual. She's a cutie but this show is hard to take.

I love Bonnie, so that helps. The hatred on The View makes it impossible for me to watch. Bonnie's show is happy, kind, funny, I love the animal segments…why do people want excitement all the time? Why not some downhome values and good friendships such as Bonnie and her crew have? Her mom is a hoot. In my area Bonnie is shown during my nap time, so I record and watch it later. It makes me sad to think it may not last…I was hoping to expire before the show did.

Hey, Bonnie is a fresh breath of spring in a world of back biting, foul mouthed, anti-cerebral pundits who have no mind of their own. Bonnie Hunt is designed for the mature and fun loving audience. You immature brats need to either get a life or get really lost. This program asserts a set of values that fits into real life, not into a base abdication of human dignity. Hooray for the true patrons: we have a sense of direction and a sense of depth that goes with a hostess and awesome staff support like Bonnie Hunt. There is so much honor and bone deep fun that this show should be retained as long as the dynamics will survive…blessings to you all.

I've enjoyed Bonnie Hunt every since I first seen her on the Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show back in the 80's. You know even Ellen gets a little boring samething everyday chit chat then dance all by her self big deal. Sure hope the Bonnie Hunt show runs for at least a year. If not I will watch for her to appear somewhere else. By the way I only watched Tara for one show didn't care for her.

Wwe need to keep the hate, prejudice and roadrage going so we can take our anger out on each other.

I told my husband when Bonnie Hunt first came on that the show wouldn't last. I dearly love her show, it's incredibly refreshing and honest( I also like Ellen). But, that is exactly why I said it wouldn't last. People don't want refreshing and honest. People want gladiatorial events- such as, football games, Orange County Choppers(nothing like watching a man who abuses his grown son so much you have to wonder what the sons childhood was like), and The View.We've been reality showed to death, and expect every moment of every programming hour to be packed full of as much hatred and animosity as possible.Anything that might make people who don't want to watch "blood and guts tv" feel good is considered "boring and dull".

I agree with comment #6.

Ms Hunt has an adult-ness and a warmth and a presence which are, and have been for a long time, absent in this virtual window on the decline of Western civilization.

Her show is wholesome, and splendid, and Warner Brothers should be applauded for their attempt to return a bit of class to this medium that has become the metric for the collapse of American morality.

I am comfortable when I watch her show, as when talking with an old friend. She brings a badly needed Donna Reed or a Doris Day to this age. Hers is a Jerry Mathers' "Leave it to Beaver", in antidote to the TMZ "lookit her beaver".

Her subject matter pleases and entertains those who are not so mentally and morally corrupt that only the next high-voltage electrode inserted in a novel place, solely to stimulate near-atrophied sensibilities, qualifies as entertainment.

As with the America I grew up in and for which my father, and the fathers of many others died, it will be sad when that light, too, is extinguished.

I really like Bonnie Hunt's show. I can't stand watching Tyra do her thousand-blinks-a-minute monologues (lose the fake lashes, girl!), I can't stand Rachel Ray because she's a talentless everywoman whose fat+fat+fat=dinner idea of cooking is disgusting, and I REALLY can't stand The View because Elisabeth Hasselback is the child of Satan.

Bonnie Hunt is normal. She doesn't talk funny (RR) or think she's 'all that' (TB) or give me a raging headache (View). She has a truly quick wit and she can do gymnastics. She is attractive to look at and has a high IQ, but still talks like an everyday person. She is not 'Hollywood'.

I think the reason that a lot of people don't buy Bonnie is that she clearly had a pretty happy life and childhood. She's always talking about the good old days as a kid and how great her parents were (dad is gone). Her mom is a sweet, near-saint-type who refers to Bonnie's father as "a great man". They were poor but they had love. People can't relate to this. It seems too ideal and it's a little off-putting because we all have a tendency to want to hear about those who had problems like ours, not about people who had idyllic childhoods and happy families.

This is not to say that I think Bonnie has had a perfect life. It's just that she is an old-fashioned cock-eyed optimist who doesn't dwell on the negative. In my opinion, we need more like her. We're all just so jaded that we label optimism as quaint or naive, when it's probably a much more sane and pleasant way to live - and not necessarily boring! Even Bonnie is a fan of "The Hills" (which I won't watch) because of it's train-wreck appeal. But the fact is, you can be funny and entertaining without ruining your life on national television.

I'm not a religious person and I'm not over-40 or a housewife. I'm just a regular person. I like to have somebody to watch that doesn't make me physically ill and that seems to actually respect other people. Like I said, Bonnie's also very witty. Her show can be uninteresting on some days, but that's true of all talk shows. I mean, who gives a crap about Kathy Najimy? I know I don't - but with Bonnie some of the most unlikely guests can be hilarious.

For instance, I didn't like Paula Deen before I saw her on Bonnie, but after she winged a few globs of gooey dough at the audience she grew on me. I also love how Bonnie flirts with some of the male guests. They sometimes seem kind of uncomfortable and don't know how to respond, mostly because they aren't nearly as quick with a comeback as she is. She really turns the tables! I think that it's just too difficult for some people to accept a woman as nice as Bonnie also being as razor sharp as she is. Get used to it!

To me, Bonnie is a good example of how to be. I prefer to watch someone that I'd like to be like. In that way, she ranks right up there with Johnny Carson in my book (& that's why Letterman likes her so much - he's no dummy).

P.S. Heidi & Spencer can eat it. I know about them from Bonnie & I think they're both two-time losers who deserve each other. If Heidi was truly 'nice' she'd care enough about herself and her family to drop that loser.

One day when I was expecting to hear Tyra's lame jabbering I heard something different…Bonnie hunt, one of my favorite people. I had no idea this show was coming on and had seen NO promotions, but here it was. To be honest, the first couple of days I was afraid it was not going to live up to my expectations, but after a week or so I was addicted! Watching this show became the bright spot of my day! I can't imagine anyone not smiling while watching her converse with her adorable Mom, her staff, and her guests. Then, yesterday in place of the Bonnie Hunt theme I hear Maury Povich…. I wanted to throw up! How can any self-respecting network replace a happy, sweet, uplifting propgram like Bonnie Hunt with this trash! I've never understood why this show has been popular enough to stay on the air for so long to be begin with. What a sad state of affairs….! As Bonnie's mom says "The world is going to hell in a hand basket!".

Bonnie is Great. After reading all the other comments, I must agree with all they had to say. I too am originally from Chicago area and maybe we have a different sense of humor, clean and honest. I hope the network people wise up, ask us what we want to see. I enjoy Oprah (sometimes) I use to watch the view now I can't (Elizabeth is awful to watch and her comments are so biased and she has nothing to offer a conversation but negative statements), I enjoy Ellen, but she is really for the younger 30 something crowd. I can only take so much of that music. Yes I am in the 50-60 group, but we are the consumers. Shame on the person that dished Bonnie's Mom, how would you like someone to do that to your Mom. Maybe that's your problem, you have no respect for your fellowman. God Bless Bonnie Hunt, and keep doing what you do. Make us laugh,cry,have compassion,and feel good about the world we live in.

I'm watching The Bonnie Hunt Show again after a long work day - I too DVR every episode. It's just so refreshing and comfortable… and positive. Just what I need after a long day. I too fear that the people that call this show "boring" have been shaped by a hardened view of life. I like Ellen Degeneres, but her show comes across as so contrived and repetitive. It's like people are afraid that just being natural and wholesome is not cool enough. People are so used to being led through their entertainment; whether it be games or tv shows - and just sitting and talking, or listening to and respecting others makes many people restless. I agree with all those above that hope The Bonnie Hunt Show will be around for a very long time. It is NOT boring. She's just incredibly witty and quick — I love her rambling about her life and whatever else comes to mind. She has one of the best personalities I have ever seen - tv or elsewhere. Thanks, Bonnie!

Please ! Please ! Do NOT cancel Bonnie Hunt. I finally feel like I have a next door neighbor on TV. Bonnie is happy, she is honest, and she doesn't sugar coat life. She talks about what makes her happy, and what also makes her sad. She keeps her friends and loves her past. I would really be disappointed if she were taken off the air. Come on NBC. Keep her on. I don't watch Oprah or Ellen anymore. Their shows are always the same…. with Bonnie, I get surprised and amused every day about something very much happening in our lives. I'm learning about other shows I didn't know where on TV because no one else talks about them but they are good decent shows. So, keep Bonnie. Where can I get tickets?
