Twentieth Television has announced that The Ricki Lake Show has been cancelled. There won’t be a second season but original episodes will air for awhile, to finish out the season, reports Deadline.
Stephen Brown, Twentieth Executive VP said, “While we are proud of the topics the program tackled including childhood obesity, life-after the military, divorce, and addiction we were simply not able to breakthrough the crowded talk show marketplace.”
Host Lake noted, “I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out… I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms — and a return to my documentary filmmaking work with Abby Epstein.”
