End Of The Run For ‘Queen Latifah’

Sony Pictures Television is canceling the syndicated talker after two seasons, opting not to renew it for next year. It will remain in production through March and will air original episodes through the end of season next May.

Queen Latifah has been canceled and will not return for a third season in broadcast syndication next fall, according to distributor Sony Pictures Television.

“We want to thank [Queen Latifah] Dana (Owens), the producers and the entire staff of The Queen Latifah Show for creating a program that we are all very proud of,” Sony said in a statement. “Thank you also to our terrific station partners and advertisers who supported the show.”

The show, which airs on stations including launch group CBS Television Stations’ WCBS New York and KCBS Los Angeles, will remain in production through March and will air original episodes through the end of season next May.

Queen Latifah, now in its sophomore year, has a 0.5 women 25-54 rating this season through Nov. 9, down 29% from this time last year, according to Nielsen. It has a 1.0 household rating, down 9% year over year.

In Year Two there were a number of station and/or time period downgrades, which undoubtedly contributed to the ratings decline.

In Chicago, WCIU also carried the show (in primetime no less), but canceled it after the first season.

Announced before the first major sweeps period ended. Sad waste of airtime on stations this season.
