A game show that has been airing for three seasons will not be back for season four. TVNewsCheck reports that the syndicated program “Let’s Ask America” is shutting down.
The report cites a spokeswoman for station group E. W. Scripps confirming the news. The program, distributed by MGM Domestic Television Distribution, has been hosted by Bill Bellamy.
“In reviewing the data after three seasons of the game show, we see that the audience affinity settled at a level that is below where we want it to be,” the spokeswoman said.
The show, created by Jeff Apploff and the late Jim Paratore, originally came from Warner Bros.’ Telepictures and was produced for Scripps, with Kevin Pereira on board as host for the first two seasons, the report notes.
“For the two-week period March 9-20, ‘Let’s Ask America’ averaged a 0.6 household rating and 2 share in 16 metered markets, according to Nielsen,” TVNewsCheck notes.
