Queen Latifah May Lose Her Morning Show


Queen Latifah’s daytime talk series, which started last fall, is about to be axed. Due to poor ratings, the future looks bleak for the Queen’s morning program.

Via PageSix:

A talented performer, she’s great. It’s great. Studio audiences great. She does variety, sings, dances, mugs, jokes, interviews celebs. Ungreat are its ratings. TV cares about nothing else.

A problem is it airs at no prime viewing hour. On that exact 9 a.m. CBS hour, before going to Latifah, was the program “The Doctors,” which got transplanted to Channel 55 to make room for Latifah. “The Doctors” needs its own prescription. Ain’t returning to its former Channel 2 time slot.

CBS never loved us.

    Shows are all about the ratings that’s how television make their money and if the advertisers are not buying than the networks loose money therefore the shows are not viable no matter how good we think they are but yet dumb reality shows like Keeping up with the Kardashian’s stay put,I think her show was ok but she she never really pulled in the Hollywood crowd

    It’s about time! Kick rocks King Latifah!
