Queen Latifah Scores Big with New Talk Show

Embarking on an exciting new journey, Queen Latifah debuted her Sony TV program “The Queen Latifah Show” on Monday (September 16).

And it looks like the actress/musician is onto something positive, as she nabbed a 1.7 household rating and 0.9/5 in the Women 25-54 demographic.

Latifah’s numbers were twice as strong as Bethenny Frankel’s new project “Bethenny,” and noticeably higher than programs from last year’s lineup during the same time slot.

The Queen even brought in rockstar/actor Lenny Kravitz to design her set in hopes of standing out from her competition.

Kravitz explained, “If I scan through daytime talk-show sets, I don’t find much inspiring design. Latifah is soulful, elegant, sophisticated yet still street. She’s a woman for all seasons.”
