More TV stations are signing up for the sassy daytime talk show "The Real," starring Tamar Braxton, which is scheduled to roll out next fall. Warner Bros. Television announced this week that TV stations owned by Cox, Sinclair, Gannett, Raycom, Media General and others have locked up the rights to the one-hour program. After a promising test run last summer, Fox Television stations in October agreed to be the primary station group to launch the program in fall 2014. The newly signed stations bring the show's clearance rate to about 70% of the country. In addition to Braxton, the cast includes Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai. The show will be produced in Los Angeles by Warner Bros.' Telepictures Productions.
