During Oprah’s December appearance on “Sherri,” the TV mogul told Shepherd she was “passing the baton” to her as the pair reflected on the former talk-show host’s legacy.

“Sherri,” which premiered its second season on Sept. 18, has posted impressive gains across the fall, with the Sherri Shepherd-hosted talker delivering the largest improvement across daytime talk shows with a 13.5% boost in household rating from its Season 2 premiere through Dec. 18.

The talk show outpaced the growth seen from “Live with Kelly and Mark” since its Sept. 11 premiere, which saw a 12% uptick, as well as that of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” which boosted its household rating by 9.8% since its Oct. 16 premiere, and “Karamo,” which saw a 8.4% rating increase since premiering on Sept. 18.

“Sherri” also more than more than doubled growth for “The Drew Barrymore Show,” which saw a 4.3% ratings uptick, while “The Jennifer Hudson Show” saw a 2.4% growth and “The Tamron Hall Show” saw a slight 1.6% decrease since its Sept. 11 premiere.

“Sherri” also continued its reign as the second most-watched daytime talk show among women 25-54 in the first half of November, with only “Live With Kelly and Mark” scoring higher than “Sherri.”
