    Syndicated daytime talk shows usually get a two-year deal, so Harry’s renewal is just a formality. If they had cancelled it, they would still have had to pay for the second season. It was the same for Meredith, Katie, Anderson, and several before them.

    While the show is a bit better than it was when it premiered last September, it’s still limping. I had high hopes for it, because I like him and I thought his producers (Eric and Justin Stangel from The Late Show with David Letterman) would help to give him better material, but his comedy tastes lean too much toward groaners, and they’re trying too hard to do heartwarming the way Ellen does (without the budget). Unless some big changes are made to put some oomph into the show, I don’t expect a season three.
