ricki lake show canceled after one season gi 'Ricki Lake Show' canceled after one season

Well, we know who is definitely not the next Oprah. That person is Ricki Lake, whose “The Ricki Lake Show” was canceled Monday after one season. The show first premiered last September but, according to Reuters, couldn’t stand up to competition from Katie Couric, Jeff Probst and Anderson Cooper. Cooper didn’t do so well either, with his show also ending after its current season.
This was Lake’s second journey into daytime television. Her first talk show, “Ricki Lake,” ran for 11 seasons, before she made the call to end it, in order to spend time with her family.
In a statement, Lake says, “I am so proud of the shows we completed this season.” She plans to return to documentary film making with business partner Abby Epstein, saying, “I am excited to create meaningful and provocative films similar to our 2007 project, ‘The Business of Being Born.'”
