Starting Over renewed for third season.
NBC’s syndicated daytime reality series Starting Over has been renewed for a third season. Obsessive fans can breath a sigh of relief now that part of each day will continue to be consumed by the real-life problems of others. Further, NBC, which produces the show, announced that “the series has received more than 35 local market upgrades for the 2005-2006 TV season,” which basically means that the show will air in a new time slot. An NBC exce says the show “is truly becoming a daytime franchise and we head into our third season with tremendous momentum, especially with women under 50, which is so rare and valuable in daytime.”
