It’s official: Meredith Vieira will be enjoying the view from the unemployment line.
NBCUniversal has cancelled The Meredith Vieira Show, announcing early Monday that the syndicated program’s current second season will be its last. Low ratings were the culprit.
Vieira won’t be out of work for long. According to Deadline, the Today vet will take part in NBC’s coverage of the Summer Olympics games in Rio de Janeiro.
“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!”
Rumors of Meredith‘s imminent demise began to spread over the holidays.
