Marie Osmond Will Not Come Back in Syndication this Fall: Victim of Poor Ad Market

Jul 31, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Despite being originally cleared by TV stations reaching 80% of the country, Program Partners says the weak ad market prevents its new hour-long talk show with Marie Osmond from launching this fall, Variety reports.

One of the problems is that stations have been saying they now cannot afford to take the show, since their revenues are down in this recession.

"Our belief in Marie’s creative vision for a new kind of talk show is unshakable, but in the end, the marketplace this year was simply unyielding," Program Partners chief Ritch Colbert told Variety.
