The second time was not the charm for Ricki Lake.
Her syndicated daytime chatfest, The Ricki Lake Show, has been canceled after its first season, according to Entertainment Weekly.
This is Ricki's second talk show, as her first one, simply entitled Ricki Lake, ran from 1993 to 2004. She finished in third place on Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars.
“While we are proud of the topics the program tackled — including childhood obesity, life-after the military, divorce, and addiction — we were simply not able to breakthrough the crowded talk show marketplace,” explains a studio exec about the recent cancellation.
Ricki's show had trouble competing with other new daytime talk shows, including one from Katie Couric.
New episodes of Ricki's show will continue to air through Septmber.
