While Bethenny Frankel's daytime talk show continues to struggle, the former Real Housewives of New York City star did get a small bump in viewership last week — but is it enough to save the show?

According to the weekly syndication ratings roundup, it was a strong week for all the talk shows.

Queen Latifah held strong at the #1 position for rookie talk show hosts even though she saw no change in viewership from the week before, while Frankel continues to ride her coat tails at #2, even with a 13% increase for the week ending on Oct. 20.

Of course, Frankel's show may have seen a boost in viewers when her boss and mentor Ellen DeGeneres appeared on her show that aired Oct. 16.

Frankel's struggle has been highly publicized, with sources telling Radar she was angry with DeGeneres for not bringing her more A-list guests — but the 42-year-old actually had its best week since its premiere more than two months ago in September.

Bethenny remains at #14 out of 18 when it comes to household rating rankings, sitting pretty above ArsenioThe TestTrisha and The Better Show, a drop from earlier in the month when she was at #13.

Why do you think Frankel's viewership increased by 13% last week — are you tuning in?
