“We are proud to have the CBS stations as our partners as we continue to build the Queen Latifah show into a franchise brand,” said John Weiser, SPT’s President, U.S. Distribution. The Queen Latifah Show, produced by Flavor Unit, Overbrook Entertainment and SPT, has not been a breakout, and its ratings have been so-so but it still ranks as this season’s #1 new talk show. It has improved its time period in New York where Queen Latifah delivered WCBS’ 9AM time period’s best 25-54 rating in 14 years this November. Like Queen Latifah, syndicated late-night talk show Arsenio Hall is said to have a two-year deal.
