The Insider Cancelled

The Insider Cancelled After 13 Seasons

In a major setback for the Kardashian PR machine, The Insider has been cancelled after 13 years, TVLine has confirmed.

Our sister site Deadline first reported the syndicated news magazine’s demise, noting the the show — a spinoff of Entertainment Tonight — will end its run in September with current hosts Louis Aguirre and Debbie Matenopoulos at the helm.

The Insider, which launched in 2004 with Pat O’Brien as the solo host, partnered with Yahoo several years ago and briefly re-branded itself as omg! Insider in a bid to gain relevance and jumpstart its relatively anemic ratings. The experiment failed to do either.

Currently, The Insider ranks last among news mags, behind ET, TMZ, Access Hollywood and Extra.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. mary says:

    None of our affiliates ran this show.

  3. Iris says:

    As far as sensationalism goes, The Trumps at the White House > The Kartrashians. Hey, silver lining!

  4. Collette says:

    13 seasons? I have never seen or heard of this show.

  5. wane says:

    A dying breed these mag shows that just repeat each other. Just like soaps. Court shows should go next.

    • The Rock says:

      It isn’t a dying breed plus entertainment newsmags shows don’t repeat each other they have different stories on each show other than The Insider which was the same as ET with different edits but otherwise it was the same. Whether you like it or not Entertainment Newsmags, court shows are here to stay so your wrong.

  6. Pat says:

    It’s been on 13 seasons? I’ve never even heard of it.

  7. Kevin says:

    Glad it had to end after 13 seasons and I’m not sure what happened to the people who left The Insider.

    Where does E! News rank on the list as far as ratings go?

    • gobluespartyon says:

      Since E! News is cable only and not on broadcast side with ET, Access Hollywood, Extra etc. It isn’t counted for Entertainment Newsmags so you would have to search E! News ratings for cable ratings on that.

  9. Bigdede says:

    What happened to Pat?

  10. BrightLight says:

    But what will my CBS affiliate run at 2:35 am now?

  11. Jane says:

    I hope ET is still the #1 top ranked Entertainment News Show.
    I’ve been watching it for over 25?years!
    Please don’t ever end ET!
    You have reinvented yourself to keep up with the times, without loosing the classy program that you are!
