Bethenny: Cancelled, No Season Two for Talk Show

bethenny canceledBethenny Frankel’s syndicated talk show, Bethenny, has been cancelled after one season. The show has been struggling in the ratings, averaging about 1.1 million viewers.

Telepictures and Fox stations were open to keeping the show going but it ultimately lost too many affiliates, mostly to Meredith Viera’s upcoming talk show.

“We are incredibly proud of the creativity, passion and professionalism Bethenny and her staff brought to daytime each and every day and look forward to finishing out the season with more great original episodes,” Telepictures said in a statement. “While we are disappointed not to be able to bring the series back for a second season, we remain convinced that Bethenny has a unique voice and that she will continue to be successful in the future.”

Frankel said, ”I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures. My entire staff worked so hard and made every day so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all my fans who tuned in every day.”

Original episodes of Bethenny will continue to air into May.

    I usually hate talk shows but hers was awesome. Someone who told it like it was. I guess I am the last to know..I don’t follow Hollywood at all..can’t stand bull crap..probably why I liked her show so much. She cut to the chase and wasn’t afraid to tell it like she felt it was..whether or not I agreed..I appreciated her candor. I am sad for her and wish her the best.

    Oh my God! You people need to lighten up! If you don’t like her and/or the show, DON’T WATCH IT! She tells it exactly like it is. I guess most people can’t handle that. I love Bethenny and the show and am sorry to see it go.

    I absolutely LOVE Bethenny’s show and am so disappointed that it has been cancelled. I never missed an episode. It was REAL. Bethenny is REAL. I think it’s a shame.
    I will miss it very, very much. It was real tv. It’s a shame people had to ruin it.

    I am glad she is going off. I have nothing personally against her but her attitude is the worlds worst. She has no control of her show. She is rude and only talk nice to people when they agree with her.

    I have followed Bethenny since the beginning of Housewives of New York City, And I love her. Although, I never cared for her talk show. Knowing her, and then watching her Made me uncomfortable. She needs a different platform To thrive on. Also, I hated that she and Jason split. She disappointed me, He seems like a good guy.

    I love Bethenny, she talked about the real issues that women deal with everyday. Its so sad to see her go.

    I felt she tried to hard to have controversial shows and injected to many sexual comments which were suggestive to herself. I am not a fan of hers.
