Irvington resident Meredith Vieira is saying goodbye to her daytime talk show. “The Meredith Vieira Show,” now in its second season, has been cancelled due to low ratings.
“I am so sorry to see our show come to an end after this season, but I am also incredibly proud of the work our staff has done and forever grateful to our supportive viewers,” Vieira said in a statement. “We promise to spend our final weeks producing the best broadcast we know how. And have a blast doing so!”
Vieira’s talk show premiered in September 2014. The set, designed to resemble Vieira’s Westchester home, included some of her old furniture and family photos. The house band was led by her old friend Everett Bradley.
The show had a different look when it returned in its second season. Not only did it go live from Rockefeller Center, it also added a “What’s Hot Now Segment,” featuring panelists such as *NSYNC’s Lance Bass.
Vieira might be leaving daytime television, but she won’t be missing from our TV screens for long. The former “Today” host will help cover the Summer Olympics for NBC.
