'FABLife' canceled after one season following Tyra Banks' exit
UPI News Service, 01/20/2016
"FABLife" has been canceled after just one season.
Disney/ABC announced the syndicated daytime talk show won't return for a second season in a statement Tuesday, two months after series creator and co-host Tyra Banks' exit.
"We're extremely proud of everyone involved with the show and would like to thank them for all of their contributions and tireless efforts," Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution President Janice Marinelli said.
"We are especially appreciative of our talented and dynamic co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk, and we would also like to extend a huge thanks to our station partners for all of their support," she added.
Banks had announced her departure in November, explaining she was leaving to focus on her new cosmetics company, Tyra Beauty, and other ventures. Teigen denied a feud with Banks after the announcement, saying she "would be the one off the show" if the rumors were true.
"FABLife" premiered in September, and will continue to produce and air original episodes for the remainder of Season 1. The series is the least popular talk show in syndication, followed by "The Meredith Vieira Show," which was canceled after two seasons this month.
Teigen and LL Cool J will continue to co-host the Spike TV series "Lip Sync Battle," which was renewed for a third season this week. The 30-year-old model is pregnant with her first child with husband singer John Legend.
