Ricki Lake Show Cancelled

Told ya. She tried to be all-clean. Big mistake.

I think we all new this would flop. She's so 90's.

Now if they would just cancel those cryptkeepers Springer and Povich.

I'm glad she didn't revive her old show though, it was barely a notch about Springer. The only thing I liked about her old show is she'd have cool musical guests, like dance music artists who weren't considered mainstream enough to get on other shows.

Her new show went too far the opposite direction. You'd think they would've known it was going to be too bland and be a flop.

She should have showed her snatch. That's what get's the ratings, kiddies.

CelebNetWorth says she has 15 million, so she'll be ok. I can't imagine they'll give her another shot at a talk-show, she'll have to continue her career as a actress, or just retire.

Jeff Probst's show is about to be canceled too.

Steve Harvey and Katie Couric seem to be the only ones successful.

Steve Harvey has a snatch??

She walked away from her original show. People rarely let celebrities pick up where they left off when they leave the job. On her old show, I loved the hunk and I used to be bullied but now I'm a stud shows. She didn't have that many of the later. Jenny Jones had quite a few of those geeks to muscle freaks shows. I got so many boners from those shows. Troy Alves, a future pro bodybuilder, was on an episode. The video was online a few years ago and now I can't find it anywhere.

I meant "KNEW", before the DL spelling queens come after me.

She would have had better chances with a reality show about her being a midwife or something.

In all seriousness, they should have her take over Who Wants To Be A Millionaire when Meredith Vieira leaves. CBS did a celebrity gameshow thing five or six years ago that she hosted, and she was great. The first night, they did "The Price Is Right" and I've always thought she should have been the one to replace Bob Barker.

Katie didn't really get "renewed," as ABC is claiming. She had an iron-clad two-year commitment. The truth is, while she's performing better than most, she's losing audience from her lead-in.

It's time for the percolator!

Gotta make room on the schedule for us.

She needed to display a real cutting edge like Anderson.

Ah, that's interesting R11 - I've been reading articles about how incredibly successful her first season has been.

She should have tried a British accent. Everyone loves trash when it's dressed up in an accent.
