The ladies of The Real certainly have a lot to celebrate today!

The show was officially picked up by FOX and BET!

The one-hour daily talk show hosted by Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley, performed well in the test run with above average ratings. Across all seven markets, The Real‘s viewership grew by 50% throughout the run.

The talk show will air on 18 Fox owned & operated markets in Fall 2014, and will have a replay of each show daily on BET (very similar to how they air The Wendy Williams Show).

The Real will be airing in the following markets:

New York (WNYW), Los Angeles (KTTV), Chicago (WFLD), Philadelphia (WTXF), Dallas (KDFW), Boston (WFXT), Atlanta (WAGA), D.C. (WTTG), Houston (KRIV), Detroit (WJBK), Phoenix (KSAZ), Tampa (WTVT), Minneapolis (KMSP), Orlando (WOFL), Charlotte (WJXY), Memphis (WHBQ), Austin (KTBC) and Gainesville (WOGX).

“Five hosts for the price of one – score! Seriously, we’re all looking for younger adults and this program delivered big time,”said Frank Cicha, Senior Vice President, Programming, Fox Television Stations. “This skew suggests daypart flexibility, which opens up lots of interesting scheduling opportunities, especially in our duopolies. Should be fun.”

Are you excited? We’ll definitely be tuning in!
