Things weren’t looking too good over at the daytime talkshow “FABLife” last year when co-host and executive producer Tyra Banks announced that she was stepping down as a host on the show to focus on her cosmetics line. And now just two months after announcing her departure, it’s been revealed that ABC has decided to cancel the series.
According to media reports, the news was revealed late last night and although the series won’t be picked up for a second season, original episodes will continue to air for the remainder of the season.
“We’re extremely proud of everyone involved with [“FABLife”] and would like to thank them for all of their contributions and tireless efforts,” Janice Marinelli, president of Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution said in a statement. “We are especially appreciative of our talented and dynamic co-hosts Chrissy Teigen, Joe Zee, Leah Ashley and Lauren Makk, and we would also like to extend a huge thanks to our station partners for all of their support.”
Reports claim that, besides Banks’ exit, “FABLife” was also canceled because it was the lowest-rated of the 15 daytime syndicated talk shows this past fall and averaged only 934,000 viewers.
Reports claim that “FABLife” will be replaced by the viral video clip show “Right This Minute” in the fall. Well, fans will have to say goodby to “FABLife” this spring, but Banks might make yet another TV return this year with reports that “America’s Next Top Model” will relaunch on VH1.
