Nashville-based daytime television show “Pickler & Ben”, hosted by country music artist Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron, has been renewed for a second season! The program features the best in lifestyle and entertainment. In its first season, which debuted last fall, “Pickler & Ben” has featured a roster of celebrity guests including Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Molly Sims, Christian Siriano, Cat Cora, Reba McEntire, Duff Goldman, and Ty Pennington. Fun fact, the show is also produced by country music superstar Faith Hill as well.
“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,” said 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.”
“‘Pickler & Ben’ is thrilled to continue our mission of uplifting and entertaining viewers for a second season,” said Executive Producer Lisa Erspamer. “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.”
“We feel very blessed and we’ve been put in a place where we get to serve those that serve and give back. So we’re hoping the show continues to do well and that people give us a chance and that they feel safe with us and we make them laugh and make them smile,” Pickler shared with Taste of Country. “We just feel blessed to be in everyone’s homes in the morning or afternoon and just be a bright part of their day.”
“SEASON 2 HERE WE COME! We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been renewed for a second season! Thank you to our amazing guests! Thank you to our hardworking team! And of course a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has tuned in, hung out with us on social media, or told your friends about us! We could not be more grateful,” the “Pickler & Ben” team shared via Instagram in response to the good news.
