Los Angeles, CA - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has acquired the exclusive cable rights to "Rachael Ray" from CBS Television Distribution and "The Nate Berkus Show" from Harpo Studios. Two episodes of each show will air back-to-back weekdays beginning Monday, September 10 with "Rachael Ray" from 9 - 11 a.m. ET/PT and "Nate Berkus" from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET/PT.

OWN will air many of the most memorable episodes of "Rachael Ray" from its first five seasons and from seasons one and two of "Nate Berkus."

"Rachael and Nate are a natural fit for OWN's expanding daytime programming lineup," said Erik Logan, president, OWN. "It will be great to have Rachael's energy and Nate's upbeat presence on our air."


The multiple Emmy Award-winning syndicated talk show is among the top-ranked daytime programs on television. Now in the seventh season of her namesake series, Rachael Ray continues to bring her warmth and no-fuss approach to life into the homes of millions with her signature quick meals, improvised entertaining, celebrity surprises, provocative topical discussions, cutting-edge musical performances and groundbreaking features. Credited with getting America back in the kitchen with her easy approach to cooking, Rachael takes the same philosophy-finding simple solutions to everyday problems-beyond the kitchen into all aspects of the show. In addition to winning the Outstanding Talk Show-Entertainment Emmy in 2008 and 2009, "Rachael Ray" was nominated for three Daytime Emmys in its fourth season and two in its fifth. "Rachael Ray" is distributed and produced by CBS Television Distribution in association with Harpo Studios, Scripps Networks and Watch Entertainment.


Hosted by Nate Berkus, design expert, New York Times best-selling author and a regular contributor to "The Oprah Winfrey Show," the series explores a broad range of lifestyle subjects providing take-away information and inspiration that makes a real difference in viewers' daily lives. Relaxed, unpretentious and accessible, Nate brings his passion for design and life to an upbeat and entertaining hour filled with a vast array of topics, from stories of personal transformation to headline-making personalities to design tips and secrets, all explored through Nate's distinctive filter. The series is distributed by Harpo Studios.
