Screen Juice: Tyra Banks’ ‘FABLIFE’ Faces Cancellation?

Published: Tuesday 27th Oct 2015 by David

Her televised modelling contest ‘America’s Next Top Model’ will go down in history as one of the most celebrated television offerings in broadcasting history.

Alas, the same can’t be said for her latest daytime TV project ‘FABLife’ which has been rocked by “catastrophic” viewing figures.

Potentially bad news for the usually Bankable Ms. Banks below…

‘FAB’ touched down on TV on September 14th 2015 with help from its co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk.

Unfortunately, just over a month after its premiere, the series has been slapped with unconfirmed cancellation reports ignited by what some are calling “catastrophic ratings.”

“Sources” close to the series told ‘Page Six’ :

The new ratings are beyond catastrophic. The show’s a ratings disaster, specifically with [adults 25 to 54]. By comparison, Bethenny [Frankel]’s delivery of the [25 to 54 demographic] was 29 percent higher than FABLife at the time of its cancellation.

These sources claim that ABC is already on the hunt for a replacement and that the show’s current producers can expect to pushed out to make way for replacements who will be tasked with rescuing it from cancellation.

Banks is yet to respond.

    yeah, I saw this coming.
    I thought Tyra would go back to the old format of the show she had.
    I LIIIIIIVED for that program, when she had Beyonce and Janet on there — then she would talk about black girls bleaching.
    This show is very bland. And ANTM has been canceled so Tyra will be out of work I assume?

    The show is boring af! I felt 4 her and Chrissy infertility issues, but besides that one segment, the show offers u nothing. She needs to go back to her solo talk show format.

    I really think Tyra should’ve stuck to the old format that she had with the Tyra Banks Show. This show she has now is just blah! It reminds me of The View, The Chew, The Talk, and The Real all wrapped into one I just wasn’t here for it even if I tried to watch, just No Bueno I found 21 Jump Street, and Mr. Belvedere more entertaining than this show.

    Another 1 bites the dust. C’mon Tyra. Gimmie what I want !

    I could have told you this a long time ago !

    Not surprising that this show might be canceled there are too many shows of the same format buying for the views and honestly none of the personalities on this show are interesting enough to hold views interests.

    BORING show. She should go back solo. That show was awesome.

    I thought when ABC was giving Tyra Banks a new talk show I thought it was going to be more along in the veins of her old show meets Oprah. Tyra was seriously the only talk show host who could have slipped into the Oprah lane upon Oprah leaving because her show could be serious, but also be fun and funny.

    This show seems like a more The View like version of The Revolution, which also was a lifestyle talk show with multiple hosts and in the vein of this. Guess what happened to that show when it began airing new with The Chew to replace One Life To Live and All My Children, it failed. Seriously the days of daytime soaps needs to make a return because there are too many, and too dull of talk shows out there.

    I also thought Meredith Vierra’s show would be better given her time on The View, but clearly she needs a panel show. her days as a newscaster made her too dull solo. Thanks Today Show. lol.

    Another thing, well two shows… I never thought Bethenny Frankel’s show was that terrible. It seemed like a show stay at home moms and such would love. But I guess maybe the disconnect was they don’t like her…as a person. But I really wanted the new Ricki Lake talk show to stay on air. I can’t believe it was canned after 1 season. She owned with her show back in the day and deserved to be back on the air as a host. She could have taken over the Oprah/Montell lane void too.

    I absolutely do not know what people see in Steve Harvey’s talk show. Its too much, and not in a good way. He is much better in short doses as a sitcom star or game show host.

      Forgot about Queen Latifah’s show. boring boring boring. I knew that fake a*** show was going to get canned. She is lucky she had a deal for 1.5-2 seasons, LOL!
