Bye, Bye, Berkus: “The Nate Show” Canceled

by hookedonhouses on January 16, 2012

Nate Berkus and the staff of his Oprah-owned talk show got some bad news right before the the new year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will finish out its second season but won’t be returning for a third.

The Nate Berkus Show has struggled from the beginning, when it premiered in September of 2010 with a 1.1 rating, and it’s now the lowest-rated among established talk shows.

In the fall of 2010 they invited bloggers to be in the audience for a taping of the show. But then, after we all tuned in to see them–Nate never mentioned on air that they were there. Oops. Not a great way to impress the bloggers or their readers right out of the gate.

(As you may remember, the online fury continued for days. Lesson here: Never tick off a bunch of bloggers–or their loyal readers!)

However. After that misstep, Nate more than redeemed himself by showcasing many amazing bloggers on his show. I usually fast-forward through the fashion and food segments, checking to see if there are any bloggers I know on the show each day. It’s been fun seeing so many of my favorites on TV.

I was really rooting for him and wish he could’ve made it work. I can’t say I was surprised when I heard it wasn’t coming back in the fall, though. Unlike Oprah’s other talk-show children Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray, and Dr. Oz, it just never really took off.

Lots of new talk shows are being developed with hosts like Jeff Probst, Katie Couric and Ricki Lake, all waiting to snag his spot, so we’ll see if any of them can do better.

Are you a fan of his show? Will you be sorry to see Nate go? Or did you already stop watching a long time ago?

P.S. I was never on The Nate Show, but they used some of my photos once. That’s my only claim to Nate Show fame. Ha.

You can see photos of Nate’s Gold Coast condo, which he sold when he moved to NYC for his talk show, here.

That makes me sad. Was one of the shows on in the daytime that I actually liked. Loved the decorating segments the best of course. Guess there just wasn’t enough trash on there to make it. Sick of all the other talk shows. Still love Nate & his positive attitude.

A.Men January 16, 2012 at 11:05 am

Worst show on t.v. Good riddance.

Kim Currier March 29, 2012 at 9:51 am

I completely agree with you!! He is so refreshing to watch, not just that cute face but his show. He is always so positive, corny sometimes but positive and this makes me sad that he isn’t going to be on anymore.

Stacy January 16, 2012 at 9:16 am

I was wondering because they had already stopped the show her in Oklahoma. I loved the Nate Show…recorded everyday. I have missed the show for sure.

LeAnn January 16, 2012 at 9:22 am

Not surprised. I used to tune in regularly but stopped watching several months ago. I wish he would have just concentrated on makeovers and decorating and not all the other stuff. He is so talented and I think a lot of people were disappointed that his show wasn’t all about design, at least I was.

Linda January 16, 2012 at 9:24 am

I enjoy Nate Burkus, but I wanted to see what he does best which is design. When his show started to veer off to what I call, “Queen for a Day” it kind of lost me. By the “Queen for a Day” comment, I mean a reference to a very old show where contestants pleaded that they didn’t have this and that and were rewarded with appliances, etc. I was becoming tired of see people ‘beg’ Nate for help only to see them rewarded with paint, gift certificates, etc. I want to see design!

Janet January 16, 2012 at 5:14 pm

How well I remember Queen for a Day” when I was a child in the 50s. The sob stories and the applause-o-meter. Wonder how many of those Maytags are still working??

becky February 6, 2012 at 3:56 pm

I agree completely!! Maybe Oprah can pick it up on the OWN network and make it a DESIGN show, not cooking, not fashion, do what Nate does best!!!

cat January 16, 2012 at 9:25 am

I love the Nate Show! It is one of the only ones that I really enjoy and will be sad to see it go.

Chris January 16, 2012 at 9:33 am

Oh that’s so sad , I love Nate , it should have been design show I really enjoyed that part only , I think there is a spot for that daily .
They never contacted me , but that’s ok

Jean @ Flower Hill January 16, 2012 at 9:33 am

I’m sad to see The Nate Show go. His show had great decorating ideas and I loved that they offered an opportunity for bloggers to be featured!

Amanda @ Serenity Now January 16, 2012 at 9:35 am

I really love his show! He has a great personality and such a gift for design. His show doesn’t revolve around trashy features and gimmicks. I actually really like the little segments on fashion and food. To me, it rounds out the show nicely. But, of course, my favorite things are his design tips. I don’t know what junk they’ll replace the show with….probably another Oprah wannabe with tons of boring interviews.

Peggy Rice April 16, 2012 at 6:08 pm

I agree with Amanda! The short segments on fashion and food are a lovely touch. I always copy the recipes and they are good. There’s such a sweet, friendly atmosphere with Nate’s show. I guess folks aren’t receptive if there isn’t anything presented in the trendy, hard hitting, fast talking bs they put on tv these days. Oh, don’t forget SEX crap. I have never tired of Nate. This is horrible news. I won’t have to hire an interior decorator because of Nate’s wonderful guidance. PLEASE, PLEASE RETHINK THIS…Very bad decision.

Ali Steele April 19, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I also agree with Amada. I look forward to the Nate Show every day. I have never been disappointed. Nate and his staff have offered unique ideas . Do please re-examine this decision. I can’t belive the rating. Everyone loves Nate.

kathy January 16, 2012 at 9:39 am

What a shock..I love your show everyday..!! I hope you will move on or recreate a new show..I know you have had great sorrow in life losing your partner in the sunami..I lost my oldest of three sons..The grief process wow. I hope all will work out for you..I loved your show and bright personality.

Mona January 16, 2012 at 9:42 am

Oh No! I really enjoy his show! And I found so many wonderful blogs from their appearances on the show and then blog hopping to other great blogs!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality January 16, 2012 at 9:47 am

Hi, Julia, I am sad to see Nate’s show go! I DVR it every day and love to sit and watch & yes, see our blog friends on there. I never made it on either & was hoping to do something to get on before it’s gone, but I doubt that will happen now. He is very talented & will find something else to do, I’m sure. Thanks always for your very kind comments! It’s been a great 5 years & so happy to have met you in blogland.

Jules January 16, 2012 at 9:54 am

I think if they had stuck strictly to a home decorating format and lost the food and fashion segments it could have been much more successful.

I’m sad that it won’t be on anymore. I love Nate’s decorating tips and style.

karen@strictlysimplestyle January 16, 2012 at 9:55 am

I am sad to see him go but I’m not really surprised. Had the focus of the show stayed on design he might have had a better chance. I tend to leave the room when the cooking or fashion segments come on.

Cosmos January 16, 2012 at 9:57 am

One of my friends recommended the show to me since I’m home during the day right now. I’ve tuned in a few times and never found it interesting. One of the few times I watched it somebody famous was on showing her new California house. It was over the top, I prefer accessible design, or things I could actually afford, or hope to afford, in my own house. Nate commented that the celebrity deserved such a nice home. One of my pet peeves is that people feel they deserve certain things. I believe such things are earned and no one deserves luxury. It doesn’t mean they can’t have luxury, just that it’s not deserved. I shut the show off and haven’t watched it since.

Kathy Strader January 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

I wouldn’t watch Nate in the beginning because it was so boring. Recently though, I had begun to tune in and watch while I ate my lunch. Lots of competition out there these days.

Laura January 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

I was aware that they were not renewing the show but I didn’t know about the whole blogger fury. Honestly, I find that childish. They got to go to taping at least! I am sad to see it go. It’s the only part of my day (I work from home) where I carve out time to sit for a whole hour and enjoy! I hope it gets picked up somewhere else.

Lacey McDonald January 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

Like you the fashion and food was a disappointment for me. If he was going to stand out from the crowd he should have kept it strictly design. However I will sorely miss the show. I never knew about the blogger snafu, but always loved that he would showcase other low-end design from bloggers.

mslewis January 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

Back when I first heard that Nate would have a show of his own I was thrilled. Unfortunately, it was bad from the beginning. A really awful show. Nate always seemed so uncomfortable and nervous, which could be overlooked in the beginning but he never improved. Plus, I disliked the way he dressed and that silly giggle he has. I stopped watching after the first couple of months but I thought the show was doing well with the ladies. Guess there were more people like me out there.

Cheryl January 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

I tuned in less than a 1/2 dozen times. I felt he was trying to cover too many subjects in one taping and though it had a “anyone can do this” attitude, the mood seemed contrived. Had it focused on decorating and makeovers and took full advantage of ‘teaching moments,’ Nate might have gained a strong following.

J. Elizabeth January 16, 2012 at 10:24 am

Saw my first episode last week and really liked it–especially his relaxed manner. He didn’t seem obnoxious like so many other hosts. Could definitely see him moved to a half-hour show on HGTV–interview bloggers and concentrate on decorating in the real world. Better than 150 episodes of House Hunters.

Cindy January 16, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Wow – this is a great idea! I wonder if Nate (or HGTV) is paying attention?!

I’ve actually never watched his show. The only reason I even know about it is because of reading about him on other folks’ blogs. I think if he started something up that really connected with the strong blogging movement (like J. Elizabeth suggests), he could be quite successful.

Just my 2 cents. LOL

kate April 17, 2012 at 9:59 am

EXCELLENT IDEA……… favorite parts are the guest bloggers and House Proud segments. Showing us the how to’s for making what the bloggers show is awesome. CONCENTRATE on these popular portions, and forget about fashion and cooking. I hope HGTV or regular network TV likes this idea and goes with it. I’m not even going to watch Katie Couric, Ricky Lake, etc. Can already tell they’ll suck, and just be “more of the same talkshows…”

I do hope that Nate doesn’t get relegated to OWN, and that would really be the deathnail. I can’t stand anything on there (although I loved Rosie’s talk show). I also don’t get OWN on my cable package, but I used to watch it at my sister’s house. Really tried hard to like it, but ‘no go’.

Teacup Lane January 16, 2012 at 10:30 am

Once or twice I stopped on Nate’s show to see what it was like but what was on never really interested me. I love watching The Pioneer Woman’s cooking show on Saturday mornings though!

ShabbyChick January 16, 2012 at 10:30 am

Never liked him. I’m not a watcher of daytime TV anyway, as I homeschool 4 children and chase after a 3 year old!

Claudia January 16, 2012 at 10:34 am

Nate is very talented and his talent showed on the Oprah segments, but he doesn’t have the stuff to be a host. A host needs a more dynamic personality and Nate, gentle soul that he is, just doesn’t. So he always appeared uncomfortable in his role as host.

I like that he showcased bloggers, but watching the show you would think that there aren’t any bloggers over the age of 39 that blog about decorating. There are many of us out here in blogland but I guess we didn’t fit his demographic. That bothered me.

jean January 16, 2012 at 10:50 am

PLease reconsider your decision to cancel Nate Berkus show…he is “one-of-a-kind” tv host…most sincere ever.

Miss Charming January 16, 2012 at 11:18 am

I never really watched his show but I know he put a lot of small bloggers on the map.

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener January 16, 2012 at 11:25 am

I record it every day and just watch it when it sounds interesting. I don’t understand what’s up with the cooking segments lately. Why they are doing cooking segments with a person who has no interest in cooking and no knowledge whatsoever of food prep. It’s annoying to watch. That’s a definite fast forward. I do like the design stuff though.

Jalon Burton January 16, 2012 at 11:35 am

I taped it in the beginning to watch, but I think I fast-forwareded through the whole show. He needs help! His style is great for the DIYer but he needs to find a producer.

Amy Button January 16, 2012 at 11:48 am

That’s a show that I always intended on watching and never got around to it. Maybe I’ll catch some re-runs.

Laura January 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

I used to DVR the show and although the pace wasn’t quite yet right, sometimes that happens with new shows. There were a few segments that I really loved and I was a fan of his ongoing *Warrior Mom* story. I stopped watching when somehow it dropped off my DVR and I never noticed!! I think Nate is very talented and I know I’ll still be seeing him around!

Black Eyed Susans Kitchen January 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

From a New York perspective, there were parts of the show that were fantastic, but on the whole it didn’t fit together well. The decorating segments were good although he didn’t have to keep giving away the furnishings every time ..the self help and how to take care of yourself/dress better segments were boring. I hope he comes back as the decorating guru that he is and leaves the self help to the others. When he was finding unique decor and decorators around the country he was at his best. Once he started bringing on the B list “stars” it was all over. Disappointing!

Jocelyn Stott January 16, 2012 at 12:08 pm

You know, I wanted to like Nate. Truly, I did. I love Oprah and usually like the people she likes, but for some reason, I never connected with him…or rather, he never connected with me. I don’t know what it is. There is just something about him that feels fake to me. Best of luck to him though!

jillian nicole {uniquely chic events} January 16, 2012 at 12:17 pm

That’s too bad! I never watched the show, but it’s always sad when people get bad news like that! Especially Nate Berkus! He seems like such a nice guy!

Emily A. Clark January 16, 2012 at 12:21 pm

I was one of his biggest fans when the show started but I eventually lost interest in the show–and even quit setting my DVR for it. I had hoped for more of Nate’s hands-on expertise but the fashion/cooking/etc. segments didn’t do anything for me. He was much more appealing to me on Oprah in small doses.

Lou Cinda January 16, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I wasn’t really a fan and like you only tuned in when a blogger was going to be featured. He did seem like a geninely nice guy though, so I am sorry for him, that it is being cancelled. Hopefully, this experience will have helped him to move into something else.

Lou Cinda

Kathy :) January 16, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I had heard that Julia and was very sorry about it !! I think he is so talented, I loved his segments on Oprah ‘ the before and after’s’ wish he had done more of those, I DVR’d him , although this season I did not !!!

Hope you are having a fantastic January !!! ( I am no SNOW lol)

All the best,
Kathy :)

antiquechase January 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm

It’s sad but not surprised. They tried to be too much for too many people. I didn’t care for the cooking , fashion and general fluff. Always wanted to see more decorating and there wasn’s enough of what he actually does best. Also, the time slot was not good.

Noelle January 16, 2012 at 1:05 pm

I liked the show, sad to hear of it being cancelled! I liked the design, cooking, money saving segments! But I guess not everybody did. Maybe he will do something on Oprah’s network?

Molly @thewaffler January 16, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I actually never saw his show, but I did drool over the pics of his living room. I think those images helped start the black and white striped rug craze.

Ashley | Domestic Fashionista January 16, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Makes me sad! I love that this was a platform for DIY bloggers to shine!

Dawn January 16, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Like a lot of the commentary, I too am sorry to hear the show is cancelled but I shouldn’t be surprised. Like some mentioned, he shouldn’t have had segments on fashion and cooking, as that’s not his area of expertise and not the reason people would tune into his show. It’s sad to see shows dropping off that offer this type of format and get replaced with trashy reality talk shows. Can’t stand talk shows today. I miss the old talk shows of yesterday.
I hope that some other network looks at Nate and can come up with a different format/time for him. Good Luck.

cathi January 16, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I really tried to like his show – but it truly was a boring. I love his work though, he’s fabulous!

Jodi from New Jersey January 16, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I am sad. I was just at a taping in October 2011. I do enjoy his show and he’s soooo cute! I didn’t know about the blogger snub. Lately he does acknowledge bloggers. Too bad for him—– it’s tough out there!

kasey January 16, 2012 at 2:36 pm

I’ve watched since the beginning of the first season; and, while I was disappointed when I saw the news in Dec. I wasn’t surprised. The first season was so rough, and he was not comfortable as a host. For all its faults (boring fashion segments, hit or miss cooking) Nate’s hosting skills were so much better this year. But the show is too unfocused. The show worked so well when he was doing design (especially for small spaces), design & shopping on a budget, or when he was doing segments with Peter Walsh, some of the bloggers & the Goodwill guy. The fashion stuff, and fix your life segments generally sucked the energy right out of the episode. I record it everyday but I also end up f-fwd through a lot of segments.

He really needs to be in a format that focuses only on the design segments, designing on a budget, DIY with special visits from the Goodwill Hunting guy & bloggers. I wish someone at HGTV would develop a show, then one of those Design Star winners I don’t like can go away. He has such a wonderful, gentle manner & is brilliant at what he does — he just needs a better producer and show concept.

Kim January 16, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Whenever Nate was on “The Oprah show” doing makeovers, I always tuned in to see his design work because he did such a great job. Sadly though, I never cared to tune into his show because he never did makeovers or focused on design. If he had, I think his show would have done better.

Jan January 16, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I love Nate – he is so talented. I was very excited when his show started, but it turned out to be not what I was expecting. I wish he would have focused on design – the show as it is seems too cluttered. I wish he had done a lot of location shows: going to people’s homes who needed help with makeovers and show how he made the decisions and worked in a real life setting. I know he will continue to be a very successful designer.

Jane Lynch January 16, 2012 at 3:04 pm

I love Nate, ever since his first show on Oprah. I record it everyday, and fast forward through the fashion stuff for the design. Maybe he can write some more books, or have a magazine? I would hate to see him gone all together for us who cannot hire him to decorate our homes. He is a wonderful, sincere, caring person- perahps the show was just too unfocused, or too many people work everyday now ( me included!) to make a trendy daytime show go. Sad day.

Morgan January 16, 2012 at 4:18 pm

I enjoyed curling up w/ coffee and listening to the last 20 min or so because I was busy w/ two little ones for the first half.. Loved the tips and cheap deco ideas. Loved the room/home makeovers .. He seems nice, albeit slightly aloof, but I think this is due to a more reserved personality..
It really killed it for me to see the goodwill/cheap clothing segments.. okay for a shout-out to savings, but, imo, they milked it w/ terrible clothing. plus, those segs were too long :(
Hope to see a new one w/ him and more decor tips and home makeovers.

crazkt January 16, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I liked the show and I will miss it, but am not surprised for many of the same reasons above. Having stated that the ratings do not count the people that DVR or watch on demand. I don’t understand why he wasn’t on OWN ..with all it’s faults it was better than allot of the programming they have on OWN now.
Personally I think too many are trying to copy Oprah’s format, and weather it was intentional or not, it was copying Oprahs format. Even Oprah got old after awhile. Sorry…. I know I’m going to burn for saying that.

Jenn January 16, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I so wanted to like this show. I really did. But….I didn’t. Perhaps Nate needs to “retool” his show’s format. I found it hodge-podge and all over the place. A little structure and familiarity may have kept viewers tuning in.

Karen January 16, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I really wanted to like his show because he does have good ideas and I think he seems like a likeable person, but I really didn’t enjoy the show very much. Sorry, but maybe he’ll re invent himself and O. will find another avenue for his talents on her network.

Kathy January 16, 2012 at 5:35 pm

I loved it and recorded all the 1st run shows. I was disappointed when they started doing more and more cooking segments, when there are a ton of those already. He is darling and talented and I will miss the show. I loved when he used the bloggers and everyday people and the “House Proud” segments.

JUNIE REID January 16, 2012 at 6:10 pm

i was very dissapointed the Nate Show is cancelled. I found the Show was very informative, lots a brilliant ideas and he was a very plesant host. it seems if a show is not negative and spread hate, you are not good for Televison.What a world we have

john in nc January 16, 2012 at 6:18 pm

i am disappointed but can see why it is going away-
for me he talked too much-
he never couldlet a guest finish a sentence w/o busting in trying to be funny-
i really do like his work but for me this show never really worked-
and then all the fashion and cooking stuff was boring to me

john in nc

Nicole Mulvany January 16, 2012 at 6:36 pm

After they didn’t give you photo credit that left a bad taste in my mouth. And I just want to say that I am not surprised about this being canceled because it just was one of those shows where he was doing too much. He wasn’t a cooking show. He was a decorating show. I also thought the hour segment time was too much. He would have been better with a show between the View and the noon news. Ya know? Sad though. But, I am sure Oprah has plans for him. I wish she had a plan for me. HA!

Joan January 16, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I like Nate Berkus – but I believe the time slot he was in was a difficult one. I think he could be utilized better in a different format as well. I’m sure we will see more of him in the future.

Jenny January 16, 2012 at 8:39 pm

I always like Nate, but I didn’t like his show.

Maureen January 16, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Love Nate!! His show was all wrong for him. Let him show his design talent not pigeon hole him into another talk show.

Vicki Jacoby @ In The Sandbox Comics January 16, 2012 at 9:51 pm

I didn’t watch the show on a regular basis. However, I really liked it when I did get a chance to watch.

Claudia January 16, 2012 at 9:55 pm

I really enjoy Nate himself, but felt the concept of the show wasn’t exactly right for what he does best. There must be a better way to showcase his warm personality and design talents.

Sheila131 January 16, 2012 at 11:00 pm

I watched the show regularly since not much else was on that time slot. However, will miss his show. Love is design sense. But the fashion was a bit out of place with home decor and DIY. Too bad.

Norell January 16, 2012 at 11:13 pm

I wanted to love his show, but I didn’t. I stopped watching after a few months. I agree with those above. Perhaps a half hour show filled with decorating only. I always turned it off when the food or fashion segments came on. I hope he finds a way to rework his show and perhaps Oprah or HGTV will pick it up.

belledame January 16, 2012 at 11:30 pm

maybe they’ll retool it to a decorating show and put it on OWN. that would make sense.

jodi from new jersey January 17, 2012 at 6:52 am

Hi. One more comment –I loved the segment he had called “House Proud.” People would send in videos of their house or a project they were proud of. That was fun to watch. I was getting my nerve up to send in mine, titled “window box proud”. I was waiting to show my window box for each season. It was a fun way to peek into peoples’ homes.. one of my favorite pastimes. :)

Janell Beals January 17, 2012 at 8:48 am

I’m sad to hear this. I thought it got off to a rough start, but did think it was finding its footing. This is too bad, a great guy and I have to say my experience taping a segment with him on the show was an “out of body” experience that I won’t ever forget!

Emily January 17, 2012 at 9:34 am

I don’t like the show. Drives me crazy that everything has to be “bargain decorating” b/c it looks like it! I’ve only ever seen one thing I liked, a kitchen that was not done for cheap.

Syndi @Beachnut Lane January 17, 2012 at 9:47 am

I was so tired of badly done fashion and food segments. However, I loved when he featured bloggers! Wish someone would do a show on network tv that focused exclusively on interior design AND had bloggers on the show! But cancelling Nate while putting on terrible shows like The Chew and The Revolution? What are they thinking?

Rachel January 17, 2012 at 11:03 am

I watched his show a few times but never found it to be very interesting.

Juju at Tales of Whimsy... January 17, 2012 at 12:52 pm

I like his show and all the great decorating tips.
Sad to see it go!

Thiz January 17, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I watched it a few times, but it just wasn’t very interesting.
I like Nate’s personality, but he just didn’t “spark” on this

Gerry January 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Not everyone is cut out to be a talk show host no matter how talented you are otherwise. He was a cute occasional guest on Oprah, but just didn’t have the personality to carry off a daily program. He would have never gotten his own show at all if it were not for Oprah. He might be the type of person HGTV needs to hire on to resuscitate their sinking network with a good DECORATING show that doesn’t involve a real estate transaction.

Linda Leyble January 17, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Hi Julia…He is a very nice and very talented guy – but I don’t think he has the personality to be a talk show host. He’s too wishy-washy. He’s like the salesman that’s too nice for his own good – and he doesn’t get the sale. I feel bad – but to tell the truth I only watched the show about 6 times maybe.

I agree with Gerry above – that maybe he would be good on HGTV. That channel used to be one of my favorites – now it’s just the House Hunters channel. How boring is that. I haven’t watched that channel in a long time. Maybe Nate could help them.


Jackie January 17, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I liked the Nate Show. I found alot of useable information in the shows. I understand that the whole hour couldn’t be filled with Nate’s interior ideas, maybe it should have been a half hour show. Maybe Oprah will find a place for him on her OWN network.

Susan Million January 17, 2012 at 6:34 pm

I have watched it from the beginning. I particularly enjoyed the how to’s and design segments. Nate, you have a wealth of knowledge to share, please continue to do it somehow. Good luck and God bless!

Carrie January 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

I enjoyed the decorating part of the show but there seemed to be way more of the other stuff I wasn’t interested in. I stopped watching it because there were very few parts I actually enjoyed.

Jackie from Seattle January 17, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Sad to hear the show will be canceled.
Enjoy his design suggestions and showing how to decorate with what you have.
Like Nates personality and kind heart.
Wishing him much success, joy, happiness.

This doesn’t surprise me-Nate didn’t stay true to himself. His show was trying appeal to too many different audiences. The work he presented on the Oprah show was awesome and high-end and that’s why I loved him. The decorating on Nate show was tacky. I didn’t want to see him cook or do makeovers – I quit watching.
Nate is adorable, kind, sweet and a very classy man. I am sad that it didn’t work for him. I still hope to see him around. Good luck Nate!

Suzanne January 18, 2012 at 12:18 pm

The show should have concentrated on what he does best – design (lessons & tips, makeovers, etc). I personally enjoyed the ‘House Proud’ segments from the viewers. I found the hour format too long and ended up fast forwarding thru the cooking & fashion segments. Perhaps HGTV will offer him a new show which really showcases what Nate does best!

mel24 January 20, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Yes HGTV are you listening?!

RG from Missouri January 18, 2012 at 11:36 am

I am not into all of the fashion and cooking. Love the home decorating, Mr. Goodwill Hunting, furniture makeovers, house prouds and all. Give him another chance. Best wishes to you Nate!

Cathie January 18, 2012 at 12:23 pm

What a shame? I loved this show as long as he was talking about design which he has such a gift of. He should change his show to design only and stop the other stuff which I see too much on TV now. Nate should redo this show and come back on another channel.

Terri @Travel50StateswithKids January 18, 2012 at 1:49 pm

That’s disappointing! I’m not a huge fan, but I do watch occasionally. I thought Nate really understood the SAHM audience and the need for small budget design solutions. The cooking segments weren’t my favorite, but I did think it was adorable how clueless he is about cooking. I agree with everyone else who said that HGTV needs to do a show with him.

Amber January 18, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I will be very sad to see the Nate Berkus show not return for a 3rd season. I have been a fan of his since he was on Oprah. I was on his show on the 1st season in Sept. when it was just starting out. I wrote a letter about decorating and I was chosen to be on the show to help with my decorating. I left there with a beautiful dining room set…thanks to Nate Berkus and his show my dining room is no longer empty (as it was for over 7 years)…it has changed the feel of my house and really changed how I decorate! Everyone on the show including Nate Berkus were so gracious and welcoming! I think he helped so many people and I loved his show. One of the things I loved about it was he had normal people like myself on his show and he really helped a lot of people with decorating and other things. I will really miss the show and I hope he gets picked up by another station.

Kathy January 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I like Nate and his design, but the was mostly painful to watch. He never seemed in his element. I think if he had a 30 minute decorating show with the decorating segments he did well, it would have been watched more. Love his decorating and hope to see more of that in TV-land!

tina January 18, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Unfortunately I’m not surprised the show was cancelled, I have to agree with everyone that said it was boring or that the food and fashion did not seem to fit. If they had just gone with his designing, the show would have been a hit. He is also incredibly stiff when doing interviews which makes sense because he is a designer!! Also, for those of us who love design, his set was totally boring, audience to close, poor lightning, etc. I had set it up to dvr when it first came on, within one week I knew I couldn’t get through an entire hour of it.

I think it was ridiculous to think that just because he is gay, he would want to talk about food or fashion. He has said a million times, he doesn’t like to cook and honestly why in the world would a successful designer care about friendly clothing prices for women ??? Too bad he didn’t have control over the show and where it was headed. I wonder if there will be a spot for a new show on OWN??


Tamara @ Etcetorize January 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I like Nate as a personality but I never did connect with his show. He always seemed a little uncomfortable or unprepared or something. I’m sure Ms. O will step in at some point and find him something else~

Jillian January 18, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Wow – this is the first time I’ve heard about the show being cancelled – soooo disappointed!! I really enjoyed it! I PVR all new episodes and love sitting down with a cup of coffee and taking some ‘me’ time while watching. Nate is so real, so warm, and so down to earth. As a designer, he is amazing!! I really hope that he moves on to even bigger and better things – I will always be a fan!!

Lisa Swifka January 19, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I loved Nate from the first time he was on Oprah….and was quite thrilled when he got his own show…BUT upon it’s arrival I quickly found it wasn’t all about decorating. I TiVo’d it every day but found I would fast foward through segments. I was sick of Nate saying “I can’t cook” and so on. I wanted to see a show about design – in ALL its aspects. I am sorry Nate’s show was cancelled but not that surprised it happened……..BUT it won’t shake my love for him as a designer. I bet you at some point all the former episodes of his shows will appear on OWN.

Timothy Scott January 20, 2012 at 11:17 am

Nate, I love your show.My wife and I are home every day and plan on sitting down together to watch you. I think its your personality that make the show.My wife is fighting Brain Cancer and always tells me its time for Nate. I wanted you to know how we always look forward to the show. I would think you will do greater things in the future if the show ends.I think many people enjoy your show.I pray this doesnt become any kind of a extreme heartache for you. we love you,Tim & Leslie

mel24 January 20, 2012 at 4:58 pm

I really liked the design portions of the show. Some of the interviews in the beginning started off rough but he got the hang of it and did a lovely job with Elizabeth Edwards. I wish it would have been maybe a half hour show all about design and decor and let him do what he does best. The other sections were a fast forward for me too. I hope to see him somewhere else though.

heather January 20, 2012 at 11:31 pm

I never really watched it. I tried once but lost interest when I realized it was just like every other daytime show. I wld have liked to have seen something more design related, more hgtv like. There’s only so many times during the day u can see the same celebrity plugging the same movie.

karen January 21, 2012 at 11:04 am

I was pulling for Nate – I went to a taping his first season and was not impressed but then I tuned in again for his second season and feel in love with the show. I will miss it!

Mary Foster January 21, 2012 at 4:06 pm

I am really disappointed to see that Nate’s show is being cancelled. As a designer myself, I enjoyed getting ideas and learning from an expert in the field. I am tired of the talk shows that focus on all of the negative. I hope Nate can do something in another venue. Good Luck to him.

red riding hood January 22, 2012 at 9:47 am

When it comes down to it, he was a terrible talk show host. His grating voice and crossed legs while standing would bug me. Fashion? Dirty hair and clothes that were too small for him were distracting. Nate in small doses is all he is good for. Sorry if I’m so blunt but these were just a few of things in which is why his show failed.

Maria January 23, 2012 at 12:12 am

I was really excited when he got his own show, but then it wasn’t about decorating. What the..?

Erika January 23, 2012 at 5:14 am

Didn’t watch it too often, but I did like when he was on Oprah. I do have to agree with one of my daughters. Nate always decorated what seemed like within HIS taste and only in a certain style that some didnt really seem to like when you watched there expression in reveals but just maybe pretended too.

Sandra January 23, 2012 at 11:26 am

i’m sad to hear this. i love the show and i’m going to miss it. i actually love that the show has other elements in it besides just interior design. i enjoy the fashion tips and i also believe that fashion inspires design and vice versa. i also am not a great cook and think he brings “easy” to the kitchen. i like that the recipes are simple and delicious.
i hope he is blessed in his new adventures.

kay January 23, 2012 at 12:00 pm

The Nate Berkus Show is the ONLY talk show I watch…full of useful ideas. I walk on the treadmill while watching him…not only am I working out…I’m learning too!
So-o-o sorry to see him go. :>( Good luck Nate!

Elaine Johannson January 23, 2012 at 2:46 pm

I loved the Nate Show. Has great style and I love his decorating ideas. It is a show you can relax and enjoy with a cup of tea. So sad to see him leave.

Lisa January 23, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I am sorry to hear this. I watched his show for new ideas all the time. I am an insecure and undecisive (it took me 2 1/2 years to redecorate my livingroom and it still doesn’t feel “finished”-somethings missing)decorator. I loved the decorating and fashion segments. I even used several ideas from both areas. And I introduced my 25 year old fashionista daughter to pinterest, me her mom! after learning about pinterest on the nate show. We have lost Oprah, AMC, OLTL, and maybe GH (in the summer), and now Nate! I won’t watch the new shows ABC has added, turning TV off except GH, will be stocking up on my online books and going to the library even more. Please let us know where we will be able to keep up on Nates advice.

Stacey January 24, 2012 at 7:06 pm

I love Nate and his idea’s. Not long after the show was introduced I was very disappointed that they didn’t spend more time on actual decorating, which was Nate’s claim to fame. There are enough cooking shows:) So sad to see it go but they should have given people what they wanted. Great inexpensive ways to decorate.

Hollie @ I'm Busy Procrastinating January 24, 2012 at 8:11 pm

I wanted to like Nate’s show and I recorded it and watched it every day for several months. But he’s an awkward host. And he cuts people off all the time to talk about himself. It’s always all about him. I liked the idea that bloggers were featured a lot, but some of the projects were a bit lame. And I agree with many other commenters that he should have stuck to decorating. I credit Nate’s show for making more people feel comfortable with decorating on the cheap. Although he certainly can decorate on the high-end, he seems to have a true appreciation for budget decor as well.

Peggy M January 25, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Oh No! I love Nate, I had stopped watching Rachel, as I was tired of seeing her cleavage and replaced her with Nate. I love the decorating ideas, small spaces, large spaces. Perhaps, he could move to OWN. Right now, I am annoyed by the reruns. this has to bum Nate out, right after moving to NYC. Will miss you Nate. : (

Debbie January 26, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I did not know about the Nate Show until I retired in October and was then home when it came on. I enjoy watching and will hate to see it go. Although I like some of the other viewers would like to see him do more of the decorating. I am in the middle of redoing my home and like to see new ideas that I could use.

jeannette January 28, 2012 at 12:46 am

oh my gosh i’m so very sad to see that nates been cancelled. i just so love his show an look forward to it everyday. i loved all his ideas an ways he made u think or look at something in a whole new way or use for an abject. an his beautiful smile an laghter was iceing on the cake for me. i will miss him so much. i’ve been a big fan of his 4 years now. i hopethey can find a new ave for him. he’s so talented an creative. love you always nate your loyal fan jeannette

Betty Lou Williams January 30, 2012 at 2:08 pm

What dreadful news!! Nate’s show is cancelled. I watch it every day and would not have known it’s cancelled except I wondered why there were so many reruns. I sure hope someone else picks up his show. I’m so disappointed. His ideas were excellent for everyone and not the people who can afford to throw everything out and start all new. Give a coat of paint, buy it at a yard-sale, etc. I am so ticked!!!!!!

Nancie February 1, 2012 at 4:41 pm

I’ve known for awhile and am still bummed about it. He truly had great advice, great guest selections and understood what a budget meant.

Deby February 1, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I love his show ideas, perfect t.v. person seriously what are networks thinking another has been show enoughf with crap t.v. NO more reality about the same ol same ol . Don’t you know good when you have it? We are all on budgets give us real entertainment.

lynn February 2, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I’d heard a rumour about this, but held out hope that it wasn’t true…. LOVE NATE and the show, do wish he’d done more decorating and refurb works, but overall, really enjoyed the program and watched whenever possible.
Maybe Oprah will step up and have him on OWN!

marg February 2, 2012 at 9:15 pm

I am not totally surprised. I love Nate and the set but I didn’t love many of the episodes. I wanted to see more on visits to real beautiful homes and great shopping sprees and deals. I live in Canada and we actually have two great shows that do a better job on homes and designs. Still love Nate though!

Alexa February 3, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I’m heartbroken! Nate really did give me some great ideas and tips that I’ve utilized around the house. I never cared for the fashion segments, but I’ve tried loads of the recipes guests showcase on the show and I ALWAYS loved the decorating segments. What a shame! I hope he gets a new venture soon!

Christine Belt February 9, 2012 at 3:03 pm

I love the Nate Show! He is such a sweetheart and it is so refreshing that it doesn’t include the Hollywood gossip!!! I am an artist and work from home and always stop what I am doing to see all the makeovers and I also love the recipe ideas. In fact I was looking at what they have on today… the coconut snowmen and hot chocolate party idea, with only to see this. I would guess he would do better if not up against “The Talk”. I couldn’t take The View anymore, watched the Talk… and now love Nate the best for this time slot.
They should just change it from The Talk time slot.

Sharon February 9, 2012 at 3:06 pm

I just recently started to watch Nate’s show. I don’t know why I didn’t watch it before…maybe they changed the time slot. But I do know I do enjoy the show and try to watch it every day now. I will miss it if it goes.

Yellow February 9, 2012 at 7:52 pm

Loved the show. Didn’t want anyone to disturb me while I watched it. Loved all segments…cooking, fashion, and especially the design. Hope to see Nate’s work somewhere else.

Carolyn February 11, 2012 at 12:31 am

I loved this show. I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT including the cooking and makeovers. I taped the show every day and watched it when I got home from work. I am very sorry that it is being taken off the air!

valerie February 11, 2012 at 1:09 pm

I didn’t know about Nate’s show until I lost my job and was channel surfing one day in dec 2011. I like the show it has helped me be more motivated to try find new ideas for my small condo. I like his energy and interaction with guests.

Jolanthe Casolaro February 11, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Hello, Mr. Nate – sorry to hear your Show was cancelled – I was going to ask for your Help (I always watched) as I am 85 Years old and have to move for financial Reasons from 1000.- squ.Feet to 500. by March 9th, 12. I am having a hard Time getting started and what to discard. I guess its not sinking in! My Daughter will come from New Jersey to help.
It will be ok, I guess.
I wish you much Success in the Future, it was very pleasant to watch you, good Luck

Kitty Dune February 13, 2012 at 11:01 am

I am so upset about the show leaving. My Etsy shop has become very successful this year which turned into a TON of T.V. and movie watching. I knit for about 12 hours a day and it can get pretty boring. Needless to say, this show was the one I looked forward to watching every morning. I wish they could just do some revamping and continue on. I agree with the many comments about more design and less food and style. Also the giveaways get annoying. Today as I watched the show, there was a “House Proud” segment with a blogger from Utah. Well….there was no mention of the name of her blog and no link to the blog on the show website. FAIL! That’s how I found THIS site, I began to google so I could try to find her blog. Now it all makes sense. I’m just surprised that this being an Oprah show that they wouldn’t pick up on the obvious details. It’s too bad, I’m really bummed :(

Roz February 13, 2012 at 11:24 am

I am sorry to see him go. I enjoyed everything about his show. Variety is the spice of life and he provided just that. All of it was interesting to me. I am going to really miss his show.

B. Christiaansen February 13, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Wow! I didn’t know that Nate was leaving! I noticed very few guys commenting…. hum!
I am retired and I liked the home- type make over suggestions that Nate has. With time to spare, I have tried some of Nate’s idea’s and they all worked. Maybe a DYI format would save the show. I’m crazy about those shows.

Good luck Nate! You are a good person with a career that should go on. Come on Oprah! Work with him to save his show! He is worth the investment!

Michele February 14, 2012 at 8:38 pm

I am very very sad and in disbelief of this great show getting cancelled. I have just discovered this show and I love all the decorating ideas, thrifting, furniture redos, fashion just everything about the show and especially Nate he is so entertaining and appealing to all ages . The Nate Berkus show is such a breath of fresh air and I am so bummed of the thought of yet another talk reality show replacing this one.

Frieda February 16, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Sorry to see this show go by the wayside, there is not enough shows were you can actually learn recycling, arts & crafts and general info. Hopefully it will be replaced by something useful, fun and not related to someones problem, or how to buy or sell houses.

Alicia February 17, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I’m sadddend to hear that The Nate Berkus show is cancelled. I just started watching the show, and I love it! Please reconsider!

Ruth February 17, 2012 at 6:57 pm

I really enjoy his show. Please keep it(: the three other people you all
Mentioned . Not interested. If Nate goes. I won’t be watching any of
The three.

cindy8w February 18, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I am sad to see Nate go. He is very likable, although I would have preferred more home design. I didn’t mind the fashion and cooking, but there was too much of it. Really enjoyed the House Proud segments, Nate’s crate, and the surprise makeovers. I would love to see him stay with a better format.

BTW, Hooked on Houses is a wonderful and fun website. I’m glad I lucked out in finding it.

Jeanette February 21, 2012 at 8:27 am


Debi Allen February 22, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Are you kidding! I’m watching the show right now & pinning on Pinterest a recipe I just saw on the show! That really ticks me off!

Vicki B April 20, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I love The Nate Berkus Show, please reconsider thse cancellation

Helen February 23, 2012 at 9:47 am

Initially I was not sure about Nate doing a show but over time he has won me over. If I am home I seldom miss a show. I wish pOprah would give him more time to build the show. He is charming,so likable and I find the show content interesting and helpful. I generally learn something new with each episode. I watch the morning talk shows..generally The Today Show. By the time 3 or 4 hours of that I have heard and repeated whatever the Kardsians have been doing,Alec BaldwiN’s latest antics and all the terrible crimes..child abductions, murders etc etc over and over. Subsequent other talk shows throughout the day repeat and discuss this as the day goes on. But not Nate. His show is refreshing, interesting and he is so pleasant and kind to wath. He deserves more time to develop a following and I sincerely hope they reconsider

Milagros February 23, 2012 at 11:05 am

I love The Nate Show, they still playing it here in Florida. I would be very sad when they stop playing. I hope he does something for a come back.

Gail February 25, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I will miss Nate’s show. He has a great smile and is very talented. I hope there will be another forum for him to continue sharing his creative designs! He’s a cutie-pie!

Sue Ragan February 25, 2012 at 8:13 pm

What sad news! I’ve enjoyed Nate’s show from the very beginning. The way he welcomes his audience there and at home with a smile and arms wide open. I’ve learned a lot from him about decorating small spaces, color and design. I just wish I could have been one of his guests who got to give him a big hug! What a cutie pie!

Sociallady February 27, 2012 at 8:08 pm

The Nate Show is the only show I watch during the day. The decorating segments were really creative. Sorry he wasn’t given the credit for all of the people that tape the show. If he goes to the OWN channel there is a big segment of people that cannot afford that level of programming. The network folks really don’t have a clue what people like.

Jhughes3 February 28, 2012 at 11:06 am

The Nate Show is one of the only shows on daytime television I watch. I am saddened to see it taken off the air. He is refreshing and provides great ideas. I don’t understand the blogger issue. Are bloggers experts … I am lost on that issue. I do agree that Nate should focus on what he knows but all in all…he did a great job.

DLBrock February 29, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I watch or tape Nate’s show every single day. I have learned a lot from him and his guests. will be very sorry to see the show end. And of the possible people to take his place that were mentioned above. I will not watch any of them or tape them.

deanne February 29, 2012 at 5:19 pm

I am sad to see him go love him and the show.

carrie March 2, 2012 at 11:48 am

hi nate , my daughter was a guest on your show last march. how excited we were to meet you . you are so cheerful and we love your show. it always leaves us in a happy inspirerd mood. thank you so much. we have just finished her bedroom remodel. she loves her nate burkus bedroom. we have plenty of after pictures. ( fun functional girls room) segment was on last march. she had inherited her greatgrandmothers bedroom set. that you had redesigned for her taste. beautiful. good luck on your next journey in life; loved your show.. you are truley a beautiful person . sincerley Carrie, Vanessa too!

Roni Carlson March 4, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Dear Nate:
I am sorry that your show has been canceled after this season. It took me a while to catch up to you, so I recently got hooked on your show two or three months ago. You’ve had some interesting guests and excellent decorating and cooking tips. I wish the network would allow the show to continue another season. Many others may have recently started watching you as I did.

Best of luck. I hope another network picks you up. You’re great to look at and have an engaging personality to go with your looks. Sincerely, Roni in Eureka, CA

Marie March 4, 2012 at 11:02 pm

This show was my favorite show. I enjoyed watching it daily. I even taped the shows I had to miss. Please bring it back!!!!!!!!

Crystal March 5, 2012 at 3:54 am

Nate’s show is one of my favorite’s and I cannot believe they are cancelling it!! Terrible news!

virginia Krohn March 5, 2012 at 11:27 am

I do not watch much tv, but whenever we are home my husband knows I want to watch the Nate show. I love the ideas, especially decorating in the home. In fact I was at our timeshare in Door County and I told the people in the center that I had to watch the Nate show. Ray, who works at the Rushes timeshare in Door County says , oh I met Nate at a wedding in New York. Ray said Nate is a real nice guy. I couldn’t believe someone from our area actually sat next to Nate at a wedding meal. I told Ray and his wife, how we have lived in our home 12 years and I wanted Nate to tell us what to do. The lamp in our diningroom is still not hanging over the table because I don’t know where the table should be. I have seen Nate rearrange the furniture in someone’s home and the arrangement is great. He has a talent.

Jean Lasher March 6, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Sorry to see Nate go, loved his show. It wasn’t full of trashy talk or people with stupid problems. Watched it every day.

Lenny March 6, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Why, Why. This is one of a few I actually love watching. No drama. I really hope “Oprah” does pickup her own production and bring it to OWN. But please focus only on decorating. I can do without the other mess.

stephani March 9, 2012 at 8:07 pm

So sorry to see the show canceled. I would have preferred it to be in the evening. I wasn’t interested in the cooking segments but felt this is how Nate is fed. I learned much from his show. Hope he returns with his many how-to good ideas. We have a bathroom that needs a complete do over. I want it to be a Edwardian/Mission Style. Our home is a bungalow type built in the early 1900′s. Perhaps Nate could do shows with different eras.

Karen March 9, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I have just discovered Nate’s show and I absolutely love it!! I DVR it every day. I am so sorry and sad to hear that it will be canceled. There are so many totally useless shows on daytime television with endless chatter that means nothing that I really hate to see his show replaced by another one of those type of shows. He seems like a truly nice and kind person and I find his decorating tips to be easy to follow and something that we all can do. In fact, HGTV has changed so much that now Nate’s show is about the only show left where we can get down-to-earth decorating tips. I really wish his show could be saved!

Lilly March 9, 2012 at 10:06 pm

Oh No. Say it is not so. I have just found the show and liked it immensely.
Very informative.

Fran Panorelli March 11, 2012 at 9:49 am

I will miss the Nate show. I love Nate and all his contributors. I love the design, fashion and food segments. It’s a bright, happy set with colorful people unlike some new shows that seem to mimic his. I am sad and suprised to see it go and hope someone picks it up.

kate March 11, 2012 at 3:26 pm

I am disappointed to learn that Nate Berkus’ show has been canceled. I enjoy his design tips and makeovers and, most of all, his friendliness. Nate is always respectful to his guests and to his audience. He is not “haute anything”; he seems as if he is a person anyone would enjoy knowing. I admit I fast forward during most fashion and cooking segments – not because they are not worthwhile – but because I enjoy the home decor segments more. In this part of Ohio, Nate’s show is on a network that does not typically feature home design/home decor programming, and I think that fact has hurt his viewership. A family member who enjoys shows on HGTV, for example, was unaware of the Nate Berkus show until I mentioned his work. I hope viewers will see more of Nate somewhere: He has a fantastic eye! In addition to Nate’s makeovers, I especially enjoy “House Proud”; the thrift store guy and the female duo who create fabulous rooms with thrift and garage sale finds; and the celebrity guests who share how they have personalized their own homes.

Elizabeth Roberts March 12, 2012 at 10:37 am

I’m really disappointed that they are canceling ‘The Nate Show’. I only recently discovered (stumbled upon) it, and fell in love immediately with all the great design tips, but I can only watch it on my mornings off otherwise I would watch it everyday. I think if there had been more of an effort to advertise the show, the network would have gotten the viewing numbers they were looking for. Nate is an attractive, fun guy with a great personality (very lovable), which in my opinion makes him perfect for television. I have never seen any type of promotion for his show, which is a shame because I think the show would have done really well if it had been promoted better. I look forward to hearing and seeing Nate’s future endeavors because he has some really good ideas. Good Luck!

Kitty March 12, 2012 at 8:50 pm

I really liked the Nate Berkus Show and I’m so sorry it was cancelled. I hope he can find another venue. I think he is really talented.

Amy March 14, 2012 at 8:23 am

So sad to hear. The great thing about nates show is that he keeps it real. He has ideas anyone can do. Not like some shows with 250$ pillows. He is genuine. I am disappointed, maybe i will see him on OWN.

Rae H March 14, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Really sorry to hear this today. NATE IS ONE OF THOSE “Real People”who shows genuine care in the people , and a love of creativity. It shows NATE !
Hope you will resurface soon.

Jen March 16, 2012 at 1:55 am

I am sad as well. I actually just found out this show for about 3 months now and i love this show. I really enjoy watching this show, especially a lot of creativity.

hookedonhouses March 16, 2012 at 7:44 am

It sounds like a lot of people have just recently discovered his show. Maybe they canceled it too quickly!

Catherine Homer March 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

I look forward to the Nate Show everyday. It has so many inexpensive DIY projects . It was canceled too soon–maybe the network should reconsider.

Anita Pfeifer March 17, 2012 at 11:33 am

Hate to see it go, but was not advertised enough. I volunteer at a thrift store and ask many people if they ever watched the show and most din not even know about it. I will really will miss it as I have 85 shows on my dvr saved. Sorry it will leave, hope it finds a new home

deb March 17, 2012 at 8:37 pm

I am so sad Nate’s show is being cancelled. It is the only show (besides Ellen) that I watch during the day. I especially loved the decorating and money-saving tips. Nate Berkus will be missed in this household for sure. I agree that it was not advertised enough.

pam williams March 19, 2012 at 8:46 am

It doesn’t surprise me, the good shows never last. Maybe if he had a sonagram of his ass done on tv like Kim Kardasian, had something repoed, or added drama like the real housewives of whatever city’ he would have had a bigger following. Instead he offered a way to enhance our lives by offering great ideas on cooking fashion and decorating while on the tight budgets most of us are on these days. It was fun and imformative. Cable offers over one thousand channels with only a handful worth watching, I knew I could always count on the Nate show to remind me why I pay for cable. tv. I wish him the best of luck in whatever he does next.

linda March 19, 2012 at 5:24 pm

I enjoyed Nate and his show very much sorry he was cancelled. the network will probably put on something embarassing.

Renee March 20, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Ii absolutely LOVE NATE, he is one of the only worth tv programs to see on todays’ TV, way too much violence, gossip, singing shows, I AM GOING TO MISS YOU NATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

debbie olson March 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I will miss u so much.I’m permanently disabled&I watch u every day&take notes.I have2 ntbks full of your tips.I’ll b so sad 2cu go.I hope they bring your show back love&blessings one of your biggest fans Debbie Olson ps I’ve learned so much

Marie March 22, 2012 at 9:35 am

I can’t believe the show is cancelled. I too am disabled and arrange doctor appointments around the show. I hope another channel picks up the show and gives it another chance. Good luck Nate, I’ll be watching for your comeback.

BETTA March 25, 2012 at 2:52 pm


angela March 26, 2012 at 2:40 am

I record the show every day. He has great ideas! However the segments moved slowly, which is why they probably lose viewership. I desperately wouldn’t want the show to be cancelled. Its like HGTV packed with even fashion etc. They just need new segment producers. They did a lot better second season compared to the first (in terms of peppiness and flow) Needs more work though. Hire some fresh people Nate. You have such talent and heart that needs to be seen. Hope they give him another season maybe third times the charm. Segment ideas: Shopping with Nate. Shorten the sad part of makeovers and the story, and focus more on the makeover itself instead of just revealing room at the end. Cook in the kitchen of the chefs a little more, i think he did once with Guy Fieri, Maybe start surprising House Proud people.

Diane March 26, 2012 at 10:47 am

I happen to like Nates show. He is warm amd seems very sincer. He cookling part is actually quite good, and the directions a also easy remember.
Too bad to lose an excellant show.

Linda March 27, 2012 at 7:23 pm

I have watch the show many times but only today went to the website to check on something mentioned on a show I watched today. I then saw that Nate’s show is cancelled and am very sad to hear this. I am from the Twin Cities area and enjoyed the connect. I would love to know where Nate likes to shop when he comes back here. Any chance?

Good luck Nate and clan!!!

Debbie March 28, 2012 at 7:44 am

Oh No!!! I taped his show everyday. I looked foward watching it. I really hate this show has cancelled. Please reconsider. I do wish the show was all about decorating.
I loved the diy ideas and house proud.
I wish Nate the best.
You will truly be missed..

Terri Blau March 29, 2012 at 9:59 am

I’m so disappointed that The Nate show will be discontinued . I love watching Nate, he has so many wonderful ideas and guests. Isn’t there something that can be Tweaked to make the show more appealing? Try that and give it one more season to see how it works. More decorating ideas and less cooking etc.
So very sad to hear this news, he’s amazing and inspiring.

Judy Snyder March 30, 2012 at 11:32 am

I’m late to the news of Nate Show cancellation. The only daytime tv show I faithfully watch. Well, now I will have more time to take care of my housework. I will not watch another talk show – this was a refreshing show and I really like Nate.

Carol VanNort March 30, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I am sorry to see the Nate Burkus show cancelled. It is the only daytime show that I watch. I love every aspect of the show; it is cheerful and has so many great ideas.

Not interested in yet another show about show business people bragging about their talents or disfunctional life style.

Leetta March 30, 2012 at 3:14 pm

I don’t know how I missed the news last year that the show was being cancelled….but, I did. I didn’t realize they had put it in the catagory of a “talk show.” When it first came on, I thought it was a design and DIY show. The cooking, the clothes and the guests was a complete turn-off. Once I saw the decorating (which became less and less) I just turned to a different channel. I wish he had stuck to what he knows best……DECORATING ! I will miss seeing him every week. We are still getting the show at 9 AM and 3 PM – different reruns.

Maria March 30, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Very disappointed the Nate Show is cancelled. I watched his his show everyday before I picked up the kids from school. Nate is very talented. I will miss seeing him every week.

Mary K. March 31, 2012 at 9:22 pm

I, too, am late finally learning why we have been seeing all these Nate Show reruns. Like many others I am very disappointed with the news. I don’t imagine the powers that be would reconsider. I wish that more of the show would have been about design, which is after all what he is known for, and less of the fashion and cooking segments. I suppose they thought these additions would make the show appeal to a broader base, however, I think those of us who tuned in did so for his design expertise and for that this show will be missed by many.

sue hoffmanbeck April 2, 2012 at 8:41 am

I’m soo depressed that the shoe has been cancelled. I’hve DVR’d the show every day & have watched Nate since he was first on Oprah. I can’t believe that this week he’s now on @ 4:00 am!!! Will we see him on tv or what’s he goin g to do now? As Oprah called him, he’s a cutie pie, so smart & awesome to watch. Thanks Nate.

dolores yates April 3, 2012 at 3:33 pm

that is the best thing that ever happened to tv, nice clean and very informated.there is a lot of other shows that should be looked at. nothing but trash.

Carrey April 4, 2012 at 3:49 pm

The cancellation of the Nate Berkus Show was awful news to me and several friends and family members as it was the only show on my TV that was interesting. Even with the crappy time slot of noon I still tuned in when not working. Nate had the best decorating ideas, tasteful yet affordable, as well as the best recipes by some pretty incredible chefs. “Couldn’t connect” so? I couldnt connect to pinterest at first either but that didn’t mean it shouldn’t be there. Big mistake by the network to cancel this show. Too bad

Ann K April 4, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I just went on his site to get a couple receipes and was surprised to see he is being canceled. I really enjoy his show. I think he has done a good job and I like his show the way it is. Will miss him. I hope the network reconciders and keep him on.

Sandy B April 5, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I can’t believe my favorite day time show CANCELLED!! I record Nate’s show daily and watch them all. There’s nothing else like it and he’s done an outstanding job with the show. He has a terrific personality, great guests and outstanding ideas. With so many argumentative, set-up shows, this is a breath of spring to viewing. I am so disappointed.

Lisa Reardon April 5, 2012 at 8:34 pm

I love the Nate Berkus show! I work in a medical office where there is a tv on 24/7 and his show is the most requested from patients. It is informative and calming!

Nan J April 6, 2012 at 11:50 am

I love Nate as a human being and love his show. I tape it everyday and watch them all. I agree with the others that stated they want to see strictly designing and not some of the guests and people who write in wanting things. Playing ping pong with Jackie Collins was…..ummmmm…… just not my thing. It’s nice, but the reason I watch is to get ideas and learn things. Please don’t cancel the show. Maybe change the format or move it to the Oprah network with a new format. Love you Nate! If they cancel your show just remember what Oprah says about “maybe God has bigger plans for you”. Best wishes!

Cathy C April 6, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Sorry to see it go. I liked all the neat ideas and DIY projects people would come
and show. I always looked them up and copied the instructions. Thanks for the
good ideas – I will miss it! April 9, 2012 at 10:04 am

I wish they didn’t cancel the show. I really enjoyed Nate. Hopefully another network will pick him up. Anytime there is a reallly good show I like, seems like they get cancelled! I too will miss the show very much.

EDITH OLAH April 10, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Oh, my gosh – I AM SOOOO SAD to hear it being cancelled.
Just after I discovered this wonderful show ……!!!
Here is a young man with a wonderful sense of humor, wit and kindness – never mind his talent!
He needs his own show- but mostly decorating and crafts – leave the fashion and cooking out of it.
I had always hoped to meet him in person!!!!!!!!!

Karen Smith April 11, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I am so sad to read that The Nate Berkus Show will be cancelled. I recorded the show every day and then watched the show in the evening after settling down for the night. Nate is a gracious host (plus so handsome to look at) and I enjoyed seeing all the makeovers and home decorating tips. I will sincerely miss not viewing the show each evening. Nate…’re the best and I wish you well in your future endeavors. Miss you already, Karen

nadine April 11, 2012 at 6:02 pm

I thoroughly enjoy the Nate Show. Why does CBS take the good ones off and put on another cookie-cutter talk show that no one needs. We NEED the Nate Show!!!

Amy Alice April 12, 2012 at 7:23 am

I am really sorry to see Nate go off the air. He seemed to connect to the audience and become more comfortable as time went by. With all the crap on daytime TV I find it hard to believe they couldn’t find a better time slot for this show. I sent an email to Oprah telling her I am disappointed she couldn’t give this show more time. My claim to fame is I was on the Nate Show once with a design problem. I am hoping maybe another network, ie HGTV, might pick up the show, if that is something Nate would want. In any case I wish Nate all the best. As a recent cancer survivor, this is a small bump in life and doesn’t define who you are. I love you Nate!

Bonnie Joan April 12, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I ADORE Nate Berkus!!! I saw him for the first time on Oprah years ago and have wanted him to do a room for me ever since. I don’t know how many times I have said to my husband that I wanted him for my son!! Please someone pick up this show!!!!!

Kari Owens April 12, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Hi Nate,
I really don’t want the Nate show to end…I think you have really great idea’s about cooking and house hold decorating. I am writing to hopefully change the mind of whom ever is in control about cancelling the show. I also would like for you to consider my step-mom being on your show. She is a great cook and she has started her on business with our cousin called The Graffiti Cake Company. If you have time will you please check out their website and tell me what you think. Thier names are Tara and Tilisha and they have wonderful designs in cakes and other items. We love you and even if you don’t choice them to be on your show we will continue to watch you daily. I will make sure ALL my family and friends watch the show as well. Take care and we will be watching!

Your committed Friend,
Kari Owens

Daniella April 13, 2012 at 12:19 am

I agree with most, they lost me with all the cooking stuff, and the fashion. Why didn’t they just leave it as a designing, diy, and house proud bloggers. I am so tired of all the cooking shows, eat this, don’t eat that, please enough is enough. I am tired of all the talk shows, shows with judges. It’s so boring anymore. All those channels that cost us so much with cable and they all suck.

And please, what is with all the repeats over and over on all the TV stations. At least soap opera’s are new episodes everyday. They need to bring soaps back! I rather watch them then all the repeats all the time. Sometimes I just want to smash the tube on my TV it’s so incredibly boring. You would think with people barely getting by they would at least give us good TV shows and again with NO REPEATS.

They need to bring Nate back only let him do what he does best designing. Someone needs to start a facebook page demanding the show be brought back only Nate style.

Karen April 13, 2012 at 12:24 am

I agree with Daniella, someone needs to create a facebook page demanding Nate comes back we could all join and force the show to return.

And please let it be the nate show, not the nate cooking and fashion show. I liked the bloggers, the diy projects. Please bring Nate back!!

Loretta Griep April 13, 2012 at 1:36 am

I cannot believe that the Nate Show will be gone. He is the best thing that happened to TV. How could you thing of replacing him with anyone. This is the worst thing that has happened since As The World Turned….Please reconsider….I was going to submit some pictures of my kitchen, because I have an albatross (my Tappan Range 50years plus) removed before we have problems with him. I am really upset…

Bonnie April 14, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I loved loved loved The Nate Show. I have learned so much about decorating from him. I really hate to see this show cancelled. This show was different for the other talk shows and very informational. Good Luck Nate. How about another station picking Nate up?????

Gail April 16, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I just found out about Nate’s show being cancelled. I am so sad. I love, love his show. He’s fun to watch and he has lots of good information. There isn’t going to be anyone who can take his place.

Tara April 17, 2012 at 3:23 pm

I heard about this cancellation a while back and I’ve really been hoping it wasn’t so!! I absolutely love this show!! How can we help save Nate?!

Tara April 17, 2012 at 3:27 pm

In addition how is it that crap like Judge who ever shows stay on the air and a good show like this is cancelled :( what does that say about our society? So sad.

kate April 17, 2012 at 5:43 pm

That is SO true. ALL the shows I tend to like, get cancelled, at night and day! Nate is a classy guy, but so down to earth, and I never thought he seemed nervous. I think because he’s not all about selling sex (why *should* a decorating/talk show have to be), it’s not a hit?!?

Jane April 17, 2012 at 3:29 pm

I am saddened to see Nate’s show is going to be cancelled. He is a breath of fresh air and I always loved watching when I could. He has a warm, caring spirit and it is a shame he is not appreciated and watched more.

Gigi Kahn-Bowles April 19, 2012 at 7:37 am

I will sorely miss Nate! I love his design ideas and DIY ideas. He has been a wonderful bright spot in my mornings! I agree that perhaps he tried to wear too many hats, and a more focused design show would have been good. Normally, I suffered through the cooking segments, but I have actually used some of the recipes and gotten rave reviews, so it wasn’t all bad! The fashion was always fun, I consider that design too, and love seeing new trends. Bye Nate! Love you!!!

Sabrina Luy April 19, 2012 at 10:03 am

The Nate Berkus Show is one of my favorites! I still hope that they’ll change their minds, decided not to cancel! I also did not care for the cooking segments, but I loved the decorating & fashion tips!

Sharon Given April 20, 2012 at 1:44 pm

I am upset when I learned there is the possibility that The Nate Burkus Show will not be renewed next year. I really enjoy the show and most of the time tape it so I can watch it at a later time. I find the show informative with wonderful tips and ideas regarding all areas of our life. Please reconsider keeping the show. I have a feeling there are many who tape the show; therefore, I’m not sure your method of rating the show would be accurate. It is so nice to have a clean, informative show during the day time when many of us are home, particularly stay-at-home mothers as well as those of us who are a little older. Many of the shows during the day hours are really not appropriate for younger children to see. Please reconsider.

Beth April 23, 2012 at 11:27 am

I am so late to hear this! I don’t have cable TV. I finally had a design show that I could watch and it was so helpful. Please bring back Nate!

Donna April 23, 2012 at 11:31 am

Am shocked! Finally a show with quality and it is being cancelled. Am so sorry. Wish I could have taped all of them to rewatch. Nate helped the average person in America. The economy is so bad, more and more TV is increasingly sexual and cheap, and we have to look for goodness. Maybe Nate’s ratings were low because women who could benefit from it were busy working while it was on. Even Dr. Oz is on 2 times a day. He would have done better in our town had it been on a National station. I had to see it on a local channel. How come the TV professionals couldn’t have done better with this show. How come Oprah didn’t tweak it better. Nate is an amazing young man with incredible genuiness and talent. I am an older generation and would never paint old furniture to put in my home. I still like matching furniture but I so appreciate him teaching average people like my grown grandchildren how to decorate their own homes with pride and creativity. Not everyone comes by this naturally. The same goes for his cooking, clothing, and remake segments. I am from the world of marketing and know you can make numbers prove anything you want. By cancelling him you are exacerating the problems of America. Of the names to come on I can promise you I will not watch any of them. Certainly not Katie Couric the horrible. Unless Dr. Phil is covering your particular problem–he is depressing. Even the lighting is too low. I do often watch Dr. Oz but it is turning into an infomercial for heath food stores. We have nothing posiitive to replace Nate–no who you feel likes people, no one who shows you how to fix it when things are bad, and no one to give you hope with a way to feel good about yourself and home. Shame, shame, shame on you who made this decision. You have cheated America in our time of need.

Beverly Bull April 23, 2012 at 2:24 pm

It took me forever to read all of the feedback about Nate going off the air, and yet the ratings are poor. Really! The thought of yet another boring TALK show to replace someone who gives us something we can use. I am obsessed with design, and feel I am somewhat decent at it, not on a professional level, however, I learn so much from Nate, he is unbelievably talented. I also can do without the fashion part of it, and there are plenty of cooking shows on, so that is not needed. I think the problem is the target audience work during the day and are unable to catch the show, I know I DVR it all the time. I am so upset I did not write for tickets before this, now I guess it is too late. Really bad decision from the “powers that be”. I for one will never watch another talk show…who cares how many babies the stars have or what Angelina’s eng ring looks like. I would rather see what a beautiful made over, by Nate, room looks like….its called real life. AGAIN, REALLY BAD DECISION…whats up with you Oprah allowing this to happen?

Mayra Rivera April 24, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Love Nate Berkus and his TV Show. Everyone looked like they were having such a great time, audience, guest. In NYC his show is on 2pm, It was my time to relax, enjoy and be inspired to create. Wasn’t in on the know regarding cancelation, but became suspicious as the ‘new’ shows appeared to be put together segments from other shows. So I googled, ‘What’s up with the Nate Berkus Show?. So disappointed . Guess there will be no TV watching for me in the early afternoons. There is nothing else that would get me to rush home to view. :(

lyn April 26, 2012 at 9:00 am

I absolutely love this show and cannot understand why the negative remarks. Oh well, everyone has their opinion. I am sorry to see him go.

kyle April 26, 2012 at 9:59 am

Not suprised. maybe a different time slot afternoon would have worked better? I would like to see martha stewart return. We dont have the hallmark channel on our cable and miss her. Marthas old show was much better dont know why they changed it wish it was broadcasted from her home.
