Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

BYE-BYE, Bethenny. Re­al­ity star and Skin­ny­girl en­tre­pre­neur Bethenny Frankel gave her day­time show a valiant ef­fort — but it wasn’t enough. Telepic­tures con­firms that Bethenny, ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Ellen DeGeneres, will not be back for a sec­ond sea­son. “I had a blast do­ing this show,” Frankel said in a state­ment. “My en­tire staff worked so hard and made ev­ery day so much fun. I am thank­ful for the ex­pe­ri­ence and for all my fans who tuned in ev­ery day.” The rat­ings just weren’t there. In sea­son-to-date num­bers, Bethenny has av­er­aged 1.1 mil­lion view­ers. Katie Couric’s show, Katie, which is also end­ing, av­er­aged 2.3 mil­lion and The Ellen DeGeneres Show 3.9 mil­lion.
