“Page Six TV” has been renewed through the 2018-2019 season on Fox TV stations.
The half-hour show — modeled after this column — debuted in September 2017 as the highest-rated nationally syndicated entertainment newsmagazine in a decade, and it’s been booming ever since.
The show, hosted by John Fugelsang, features panelists Bevy Smith, Variety’s Elizabeth Wagmeister and Page Six’s Carlos Greer, with input from Page Six editors Emily Smith and Ian Mohr.
It averaged 4 million weekly viewers this season and is tied for the No. 1 new first-run series.
Frank Cicha, senior vice president of programming for Fox Television Stations, said “Page Six TV” “has shown great promise over its first few months. We expect growth this year, and certainly in year two, as well.”
Ken Lawson, SVP and general sales manager of broadcast syndication at Twentieth Television said, “In an extremely competitive marketplace, we are thrilled that ‘Page Six TV’ is resonating for our stations by delivering a younger, more dynamic, and completely ‘inside’ take on celebrity gossip.”
Kay O’Connell, Michael Bachmann, New York Post Publisher and CEO Jesse Angelo and Endemol Shine North America’s Michael Weinberg serve as executive producers.
Kathleen Rajsp is co-executive producer.
