3. ‘The Ricki Lake Show’ canceled after one season
Bye, Ricki! Ricki Lake’s return to TV has been short-lived, and after just one season her re-booted talk show will fade to black.
According to The Hollwyood Reporter, "The Ricki Lake Show" has been canceled after just one season back on the air. Twentieth Television decided to end the show because her ratings just weren’t high enough.
After returning to the air in September "Ricki" only managed to get a 0.7 rating in households. That was better than the 0.5 rating she received among women 25-54, which is a key demographic. When comparing Ricki’s show to programs that were on in the same time slots last year, her ratings were down 30 percent.
