Queen Latifah

As a result of low ratings and high costs, The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled, the Daily Mail reports.

The daytime talk show, now in its second season, will stop production at the end of the year, though new episodes will continue to air through March, according to the Hollywood Reporter.


The Sony Pictures Television show has not performed as well in the ratings as CBS-owned stations had hoped, and production costs have been high, according to the Daily Mail.

Queen Latifah praised her staff Friday on her Facebook page. “Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges,” she wrote. “Your family, partners, staff and crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of that! Not everyone can say the same.”

The show debuted Sept. 16, 2013, with an interview with John Travolta and a performance by Willow Smith. It was the highest-rated premiere of a daytime talk show since The Dr. Oz Show in 2009.
