Talking "MARTHA" Stewarts Daytime Show a Hit..TYRA FLOPS!

Martha Stewart came back from her five-month stay in prison with a bang, beating last year's time period numbers by a gaudy 41% with the Monday premiere of the syndicated "Martha."
The other high-profile syndicated talkshow debut, Warner Bros. Domestic TV's "The Tyra Banks Show," averaged a more modest 1.3 rating, which was 24% lower than the lead-in rating and 13% below last year's September timeslot average. These numbers are based on overnight ratings from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research.

A third firstrun-syndication premiere, 20th TV's half-hour court show "Judge Alex," averaged a 1.7 household rating, which was a 13% improvement over the 1.5 rating delivered in the time period in September 2004. But "Judge Alex" was off by 6% from its lead-in average of 1.8.

For "Martha," distributed by NBC Universal Domestic TV, the 2.4 rating it chalked up was 4% higher than the show's average lead-in. NBC U's competitors pointed out, however, that 17 of the 53 markets feeding data on "Martha""Martha" were stuck with the failed "Jane Pauley Show" in the time period a year ago, a program that got off to a flying stop.

NBC U said that "Martha" put together the best opening day for a new show since "Dr. Phil" broke out of the starting gate in September 2002.

They’re always hyping new shows like this and then months later reports come out that the show is struggling.

I've seen Tyra's show a couple of times and it was "okay". At least there weren't any "Who's The Daddy" or "Is This A Real Woman" shows.

I love Martha, but haven't seen the show...but I did see a highlight of when she had Diddy on there. Martha talking street slang ain't good entertainment.

Martha is happy and smiley on the outside but I can see her seething on the inside at having to put up a false front to revamp her image

I adore Martha and shocked I haven't seen the new daytime show yet.

I saw Tyra's show once. It was cute and could definitely find a niche if she hangs in there.

Martha may be a freaky white Republican woman that fancies breaking the law, but I love her anyway.

I love Martha too. I think prison humbled her, and I think she now knows who her real friends are. I hadn't heard that Martha had a new talk show. I thought the Apprentice was it. But, good on her. Anyway, I love the fact that they thought they had Martha kicked in the butt, but she came out of prison swinging and even more popular. The stock in her company soared when she was in prison So, unlike some people's opinion, she really doesn't have to revamp her image. Her fans like her just the way she is. It's a good thing.

Josh, did you see the TV movie, Martha Behind Bars? It was pretty good. I'm so glad that that little rat who turned her and her broker in, ended up where he is, i.e. nowhere, and Martha is back on top. He was obsessed with her and hated her, which is why he did what he did.
