[ # ] The Real got the realest news today, it was cancelled
April 8th, 2022 under The Real

There are a lot of daytime talk shows that are ending/were canceled this year. Today we learned that there is one more that is joining The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Wendy Williams Show, The Maury Povich Show, Judge Jerry, Dr. Oz, his daughter’s show, The Doctors, Daily Mail TV, and The Nick Cannon Show, and that show is The Real.

Loni Love, who was part of The Real for all 8 seasons, has her theory of why it is ending. The comedian wrote, “In the end The Real cast & crew did everything we could to scale the show down..We shot 7-8 shows in 3 days, no audience, made a conference room into a studio, but in my opinion Covid costs killed this show.. it’s been a great ride and thanks to the viewers for 8 great seasons!”

I think Love nailed it. COVID cost a lot of money, and the shows all lost viewers, and with that, they are going for cheaper replacements like Jennifer Hudson’s show that no one will watch. CBS got creative to save Drew Barrymore’s talk show. They are splitting her hour-long show into two half hours and are letting the local channels air an extra thirty minutes of their own newscast.

Daytime is going to look a whole lot different in the Fall. It will be interesting to see if people are still going to be watching all of these new people and their shows.

On that note, who is replacing Ellen? Why haven’t they announced that yet? Things that make you go, hmmm?
