Producer Sony Pictures Television has confirmed that it is pulling the plug on “The Queen Latifah Show,” B&C reports.
The company said today that the show will wrap up production by the end of December. Original episodes of the show will continue to air through the end of March 2015.
B&C notes: “The news comes after word that CBS Television Distribution’s ‘Man in the Middle’ would not be going forward, largely because of economic considerations. What the CBS Owned Television Stations will air in its place is unclear, but some sources speculated that the group would pick up CTD’s ‘Hot Bench’ in some markets. ‘Hot Bench’ is this season’s top-rated rookie.”
“Latifah,” which bowed in September 2013, has been averaging a 1.0 in households this season, the report notes, placing it among the lowest-ranked talk shows.
