Cable Channel Pulls the Plug on Signature Show

A series that became a fixture of the cable landscape following its launch back in 1995 is about to end its run. Variety reports in an exclusive that E! is pulling the plug on “Fashion Police,” which has been a signature franchise for the channel.

The show, which grew out of Joan Rivers’ comedic red-carpet commentaries, remained focused largely on the veteran comedian until her death in 2014. In recent years, Rivers’ daughter Melissa has carried on as the franchise’s central figure.

The show’s most recent installment was a special that aired in September, focusing on the Primetime Emmys.

Variety reports that the series will wrap with “Fashion Police: The Farewell,” a special installment set to premiere on E! on Nov. 27.

“The special will be hosted by Melissa Rivers and the current panelists, including Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho,” Variety reports. “It will also feature highlights from Joan Rivers’ run on the show, as well as clips from an unaired episode featuring Joan Rivers and her co-hosts paying tribute to ’80s fashion.”
