Nate Berkus on KDRV Channel 12 at 3 p.m. is all of a sudden gone and Katie Couric is in his old slot. What gives? Could you find out what happened to Nate and why?
—Paul I., Medford
Sorry to bring you bad news, Paul, but Berkus' show — The Nate Berkus Show — was canceled at the end of its second season.
The syndicated talk show came on the air in September 2010 and featured Berkus, an interior designer who gained popularity after being a regular guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
In December 2011, it was announced that the show would not return for a third season, according to a post on Berkus' website, www.nateberkus.com.
The show stopped airing new episodes in May, though reruns continued through the end of August, according to the site.
Sony and Harpo, Oprah's production company, produced the show together and announced the cancellation jointly in a public statement last December.
The show never had high ratings, according to an article posted on broadcastingcable.com.
Since the cancellation, Berkus has been busy promoting his new design book released this month, "The Things That Matter," and working on his own line of home decor, sold at Target.
While there won't be any new episodes of the show, Paul, you may be able to catch one of the reruns, which air on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
