A late-night talk and variety show running on cable has been canceled. Variety reports that BET pulled the plug on “The Rundown with Robin Thede.”

The weekly show debuted back in October and wrapped up its first, and now only, season on April 19, airing 24 episodes.

“’Rundown’ gave Thede a platform as the only African-American female host in late-night TV. The half-hour series served up a mix of headlines, sketches, field pieces and short documentary segments,” Variety reports.

BET said in a statement: “At this time BET Networks has decided not to renew ‘The Rundown with Robin Thede.’ We have so much love and respect for our Unicorn and look forward to finding ways to continue in partnership with Robin.”
