Ricki Lake's talk show canceled due to low ratings

UPI News Service, 02/04/2013 

Ricki Lake's U.S. daytime talk show, which started in September, has been canceled after one season due to low ratings, Twentieth Television announced Monday.

"We would like to thank Ricki Lake as well as executive producer Gail Steinberg and the entire staff for their work this season," Stephen Brown, executive vice president of programming and development for Twentieth Television, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter about the cancellation of "The Ricki Lake Show."

"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 break through the crowded talk show marketplace."

"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 film-making work with Abby Epstein. I am excited to create meaningful and provocative films similar to our 2007 project, 'The Business of Being Born,'" Lake said.

Lake previously served as host of the talk show "Ricki Lake" from 1993 to 2004.
