Nate Berkus Disses Martha

Categories: Gossip

Nate Berkus is desperate to get a certain guest on his TV talk show, seeing as he loves her even more than interior design.

In fact, he wants her so badly that his bookers sent her people a pitch letter that slimes his competition!

Here's an abridged version of what the info said (according to a correspondence that I exclusively got my paws on):

"NATE OUTDELIVERS MARTHA

·Nate delivers more than one million more viewers than Martha's Hallmark show. Nate averages about 1.2 million total viewers so far this season, while Martha's talk show averages only about 220,000 total viewers.


"NATE IMPROVES TIME PERIODS, WHILE WENDY UNDERPERFORMS THEM

·This November, Nate delivers a 0.6 rating among Women 25-54, building its time periods from a 0.5 base, up +20 percent over last November.

·Wendy Williams also delivers a 0.6 rating among Women 25-54, but that is down from its time periods' 0.7 last year, -14 percent."


Got that? Think it's tacky for someone to basically say, "Do my show, not theirs"?

Well, talk TV is a cutthroat world. And that's coming from a blog that's creaming the competition!

The Nate Berkus show is the most boring show on TV. He has no HOSTING presence.The segments on home decor aren't even on par with what I would consider great DYI tips much less NATE doing an actual makeover that WOOs the watcher. The set is totally boring, nothing eye catching and even some of the 'props' they use for decorating example (how to's or how not to) are worn, old and horribly mismatched. Regardless of viewership take a look around most blogs and other sites and see just how much his show is hated. He couldn't hold a candle to Martha Stewart.

Think Nate is talented, but not as a talk-show host! B.O.R.I.N.G!

But Nate is so annoying! His voice is cringe inducing!

Who are you mad at for saying "She's about to turn 70"??

No one here said that.

Nate Bergus' trash tv audience of "1.2 million total viewers" is a bogus number from Nielsen, so too, the outdated "220,000 total viewers" for the Martha Show. For terrific quality in show and viewers, the Martha Show outdelivers Bergus in excellence. Martha is the exceptional standard that Liza Minelli should want to associate with. Martha rules!

"She's about to turn 70 is of no relevance and relates to deploreable age discrimination. Laws exist that ban age discrimination, and it's about time people's mentality get in sync and end age-based discriminatory thinking. Martha's cooking, baking, crafting, gardening got nothing to do with "live like wealthy east-coast WASPs." She's about living an everyday healthy lifestyle that "many young women these days" should care about, unless they are the living dead or they are six feet under.

He was created on the Oprah show wasn't he? Didn't his boyfriend die? Now Nate has a daytime talk show. Someone help me fill in the details.

I admire and respect Martha greatly (and her giant chrome-steel pair!) but I think she's overexposed. Nothing can change the fact that she's about to turn 70, and I suspect that she's DOA in, say, the females 20-30 demographic; I have to wonder just how many young women these days still aspire to live like wealthy east-coast WASPs. I figured it was the death-knell when her TV show moved to cable-only on Hallmark, which is a unique kind of basic-cable ghetto. But I don't expect OWN to do very well in the long run either!

I always thought it was HIS show that was the one not doing that well. Didn't realize Martha's numbers were so low!!

If the numbers are true, I guess he has a right to trumpet them.

I never heard of him or heard his voice. He looks sexy. I like that hot guy in Atlanta on Designed to Sell. Sort of looks like this guy but not exactly. Like that guy's looks, voice and...designing!
