Bad new for viewers of ‘The Queen Latifah Show’.
The daytime talker was officially cancelled as of this morning.
The show is in its 2nd season and we’re told production will be coming to a halt. Our sources say the staff was brought into an office Friday AM and given the news. The honchos weren’t specific but it’s all about ratings and cost.
Writing a letter to her staff on Facebook moments after the announcement, media mogul Latifah said:
“Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running.
Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed “True Grit”!
You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show.We truly changed people’s lives for the better.
So… STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG, and most importantly, STAY OPEN… There is so much more God has in store!
P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome…believe in yourself and continue to fly.”
Needless to say, it’s a reminder of how unrelenting the ratings game is. If the numbers don’t don’t up, deletion is often around the corner
Still, we doubt the Queen will be down for long. She has a successful production company in the form of Flavor Unit, which produces shows such as ‘Single Ladies’ and many other projects for VH1.
