THR reports that daytime talk shows Trisha and The Test have both been cancelled. In addition, MC Serch’s test series Serch won’t be moving forward.
NBCUniversal has confirmed that Trisha, which stars British talk show host Trisha Goddard, is being cancelled after two seasons. In a statement, the studio said, “Trisha is a great talent and we recognize and are grateful for all of the hard work that Trisha and the production staff have put in to the show for the past two seasons.”
Meanwhile, CBS Television Distribution wouldn’t comment on the cancellation of The Test, a conflict resolution talk show, but sources confirmed the bad news. Hosted by Kirk Fox, it premiered last September but never caught on. Both Trisha and The Test have averaged a 0.6 rating this season.
Serch had a three week test-run on Tribune stations in New York, Los Angeles, and other markets. It averaged a 1.0 rating and showed some signs of growth but CBS has opted not to move forward with a national rollout.
