TVLine Items: Hello Ross Cancelled, New Boardwalk Trailer and More

Hello Ross Cancelled

Goodbye, Ross.

Ross Mathews’ eponymous late-night talk show on E! will not return for a third season, TheWrap reports.

Although the future of Hello Ross became uncertain after Chelsea Handler’s departure from the network, the cancellation is largely due to Mathews’ newest gig. In September, he will join correspondents Maria Menounos and Jason Kennedy on the primetime roundtable series Live From E!, which originated on digital platforms.

    So sad for E! on losing two hilarious talk shows: Chelsea Lately and now Hello Ross.

      Not surprised about Hello Ross. Handler was one of his producers on that show, so if they continued to air it they would be putting some money in her pocket.

      I think there is some bad blood there. I enjoy Handler’s show, usually, but the numbers have been trending down. And she is bad to bite the hand that feeds her and really go after some celebrities. Especially those that also work on E. So I think they are glad to see the back of her. And they don’t want to pay her anymore. Airing Hello Ross would mean a not insubstantial pay check to Handler for a no-show job. They keep Ross on the channel, and don’t have to pay Chelsea any more. Win-win.

      Also, his show could be grating. With the right guest it was great. But E forced too many of its, or sister channel’s, reality shows on to guest. I didn’t care about them.

    How and why people keep putting this guy in front of the cameras is MIND-BOGGLING! The guy does not do his research and has no idea who or what he is talking about most of the time.

    Ross is wonderful! Shame
    On E for canceling him
