America Now: TV Show Cancelled, No Season Five

America Now canceledAmerica Now is ending after four seasons on the air. The syndicated lifestyle program which is hosted by Leeza Gibbons and Bill Rancic has been cancelled.

Raycom Media, which produces the daily show (via ITV Studios America) and covers all of its production costs, confirmed the cancellation.

America Now is a show we are extremely proud of,” said Paul McTear, president and CEO of Raycom Media. “We love Leeza, Bill, the content and the fact that it’s family friendly and advertiser friendly. But it failed to measure up, from a business-model standpoint.”

Combining original content with segments from local stations, the show premiered as a one-hour show back on October 30, 2010. In September 2011, it was downsized to a half-hour daily show but two episodes often aired back-to-back.

It’s unclear when the show will actually end but its expected to finish out the current season.

What do you think? Did you enjoy watching America Now? Are you sorry to hear that it’s been cancelled?

From a business model standpoint? Please elaborate… you are cancelling a great consumers informative show. The best in my opinion. I realize that everything gets down to profit but eplease dont assume we viewers are so stupid that we all will be satisfied with such a weak reason for pulling the show. I challenge you to define your position.

This was one of the most informative programs there is. It is all informative information you can apply to your every day life. Please bring it back. Most programs are just garbage.

I enjoy this program very much. It is very informative with lots of helpful hints and news that informs and educates. Very sorry to know it’s being cancelled. One of the very few programs worth watching that you can take away every day life tips and new skills. It is a BLESSING! Enough please of the reality and Hollywood garbage that helps nobody. Please keep on the air. Thank you for reading!

I loved America Now. Just came across it this year and can’t believe you replaced it with a stupid Holleywood program, which we have way too many now. Please bring back America Now, where you can actually learn useful things.

I really enjoy this show… 90% of the time the shows that get cancelled are replaced with shows I care even less about!

This show was boring. I won’t miss it. Maybe if was run in another format that wasn’t so boring.
