No, really…. just go Ricki. Sadly, Ricki Lake’s return to the talk show circuit is short lived with her daytime talk show ending after just one season.
“The Ricki Lake Show” premiered in September last year, but has unfortunately been cancelled by Twentieth Television. The reason for the shows cancellation was that the overcrowded talk show marketplace was too strong for Ricki to break through. Such a shame really considering she was one of the first out there.
This new version of Ricki’s show featured some hard-hitting discussions, especially around issues such as suicide prevention, mental illness and more, but perhaps it just wasn’t sensationalist enough for the viewing public. Did you watch Ricki’s new show? What do you think it was missing?
