To ‘Forgive’ again

Syndie yakker renewed, Beminowitz upped

Daytime syndie strip “Forgive or Forget” is getting a new exec producer and a green light for a second season, beginning in September.

Talk TV vet April Beminowitz has been upped from supervising producer to exec producer on the Gotham-based show, which has officially been picked up for a second season, according to Twentieth prexy Rick Jacobson.

Beminowitz replaces Stuart Krasnow, who is relocating to Los Angeles for an undisclosed new gig. Former “Forgive” senior producer Kathryn Siegel has been bumped up to supervising producer.

“Forgive,” a talk-reality hour hosted by former radio personality Mother Love, bowed in the off-season last June, but the show’s second season will conform to the September-September syndie norm. Jacobson, though, believes the summer start helped “Forgive” to earn a second year.

“We avoided the onslaught of the fall, and we had the chance to establish ourselves with good (ratings) stories in a couple of key markets,” said Jacobson, noting that the show has performed particularly well in urban markets like Gotham and Detroit.

Overall, it has climbed from a 1.2 national Nielsen household rating in its debut to the 2.0 range during February sweeps. The show offers a suspenseful twist on the talkshow format: guests ‘fess up to past misdeeds as they wait to see whether the injured parties have agreed to forgive, or at least forget.

Under consideration for the second season are plans to have Mother Love venture out of the studio more often for field reports and man-on-the-street apology segs.
