Ricki Lake’s return to daytime has been cut short.

The Ricki Lake Show” has been cancelled after one season, the studio announced Monday.

Lake’s daytime talk show, which launched in September, will not be renewed for a second season, but original episodes will continue to air through the end of this season.

“We would like to thank Ricki Lake as well as executive producer Gail Steinberg and the entire staff for their work this season. While we are proud of the topics the program tackled including childhood obesity, life-after the military, divorce, and addiction we were simply not able to breakthrough the crowded talk show marketplace,” said Stephen Brown, EVP of programming & development, Twentieth Television, in a statement.

Said Lake, “I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out. I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms.”
