Twentieth Television’s “Geraldo at Large” has been canceled after little more than a year on the air.

Production is scheduled to shut down in mid-January, and the show will leave the Fox Television Stations lineups at the end of January.

The cancellation could make way for Warner Bros.’ upcoming newsmagazine based on Web site TMZ.com, a source said Thursday. The Fox stations have been eyeing the TMZ show, as previously reported (TelevisionWeek, Dec. 18).

The staff of the showcase for Geraldo Rivera and a small band of reporters was told of the cancellation Thursday.

Mr. Rivera will return to Fox News Channel on Saturday and Sunday evenings, Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO, FOX News and Chairman, FOX Television Stations announced Thursday.

In addition to hosting his signature program, Mr. Rivera will continue to make guest appearances on “The O’Reilly Factor” and serve as a correspondent at large during major breaking news events.
