Bethenny 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.
