The Faith Hill-produced talk show, Pickler & Ben, is officially a hit after the E.W. Scripps Company renewed the show for a second season. Hosted by country star Kellie Pickler and award-winning television personality Ben Aaron, the show highlights the best in entertainment and lifestyle.
“‘Pickler & Ben’ is thrilled to continue our mission of uplifting and entertaining viewers for a second season,” said Executive Producer Lisa Erspamer in a press release. “Our impassioned team is committed to highlighting stories that make you smile and people who make you cheer – star chefs, DIY experts, celebrities and top-notch entertainment. Our goal remains the same: to bring joy, light and humor to daytime.”
“Kellie and Ben are a breath of fresh air in the daytime space, and audiences have loved watching them bring this fun, dynamic show to life,” added Cater Lee, vice president of programming for Scripps. “The creators’ vision that a show originating from Middle America would appeal to viewers everywhere was spot on, and we are seeing that in just a few months it is already outperforming many long-established talk shows in key demos and on social media. I am delighted that we are recommitting for a second season.”
Since debuting, Pickler & Ben has featured many of today’s brightest stars, including Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Molly Sims, Christian Siriano, Cat Cora, Reba McEntire, Duff Goldman, Ty Pennington, among others.
The show is recorded in front of a live studio audience from its farmhouse-style set in Nashville, TN.
