NBC has pulled the plug on a high-profile daytime talk show after its ratings headed south. The Huffington Post reports that the network will end “The Meredith Vieira Show” after it wraps its second season in May.
In a statement, Vieira said: “I am so sorry to see our show come to an end after this season, but I am also incredibly proud of the work our staff has done and forever grateful to our supportive viewers. We promise to spend our final weeks producing the best broadcast we know how.”
The show’s numbers have reportedly been off by about 25% in season two, following a strong debut for the series in September 2014.
Vieira will remain a presence on NBC when she reports from the Olympic Games this summer.
