Aw! And we were so happy to have Ricki Lake back on our TVs!
After just one season, Twentieth Television has decided to pull the plug on the newly-revived Ricki Lake Show!
Ricki became a talk show staple in 1993, when she hosted Ricki Lake until 2004, when she stepped down to take a break from it all!
Mz. Lake then recently returned with her latest show, The Ricki Lake Show, in September of 2012, though it wasn’t enough to “break through the crowded talk show marketplace.”
"I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out.
I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms — and a return to my documentary filmmaking work with Abby Epstein.”
We guess the talk show landscape is definitely way more different than it was a decade ago!
We wish Ricki the best in her future projects and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
