How the mighty have fallen!
Meredith Vieira may be one of the most respected women in news… but that level of fame apparently couldn’t translate over to daytime television ratings.
It was announced on Monday that The Meredith Vieira Show has been cancelled after two seasons on the air.
Meredith premiered back on September 8, 2014, with a revamped layout and panel of guest commentators for Season Two including Lance Bass, Yamaneika Saunders, Lilliana Vazquez, and Megan Colarossi, but the news out of NBCU has effectively put all of them out of a job.
The former View and TODAY host issued a statement to Deadline following the cancellation, saying:
“I am so sorry to see our show come to an end after this season, but I am also incredibly proud of the work our staff has done and forever grateful to our supportive viewers. We promise to spend our final weeks producing the best broadcast we know how. And have a blast doing so!”
Meredith will stick with NBC throughout 2016 as a commentator for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, but it’s unclear which show will replace TMVS on the schedule.
