The Kelly Clarkson Show moving to Rockefeller Center in New York City

After Kelly Clarkson filmed her talk show premiere in New York City the past two seasons, The Kelly Clarkson Show will move production from the Universal lot in Los Angeles to NBC Studios in 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York next season.

The talk show will film in front of a studio audience in studio 6A, confirms Variety with a NBCUniversal spokesperson. The studio has been home home to Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien and David Letterman. A new state-of-the-art studio will be built for the American Idol OG winner’s show, as well as technical facility and support space.

According to Variety, the east coast move for the show follows the expansion of New York’s Film Tax Credit, which was recently signed into law by Gov. Kathy Hochul in the fiscal year 2024 budget. As part of the program’s expansion, the state now provides an incentive to eligible television productions that relocate to New York and reduces the eligibility requirements for talk and variety shows from five years of filming to two years.

Kelly will move to New York

A Variety source says details are still being worked out regarding the show’s entire staff, which has been based in Los Angeles since the show premiered in 2019. Kelly will move to New York, along with her executive producer and showrunner, Alex Duda, and her longtime musical director, Jason Halbert.

The Kelly Clarkson Show was recently nominated for 11 daytime Emmys and won 13 awards during its run. The show has held steady in the ratings, growing consecutively season-to-season, and ranking third among all syndicated daytime talk shows, according to Variety. This season, The Kelly Clarkson Show is averaging 1.37 million daily viewers.

Will Kelly remain a coach on The Voice?

The Kelly Clarkson Show kicks off season 5 this fall. The daytime talk show has been renewed through its sixth season, which will take the show through 2025.

How will Kelly living and working on the east coast affect her involvement as a coach on The Voice which films at Universal Studios in Los Angeles? Gone will be the days when she’s able to dash from her talk show studio to The Voice studio on the same lot.
