The Real CANCELLED: Fox Stations Group pulls the plug after eight seasons



Bestinau got that-


The daytime talk show The Real, hosted by Garcelle Beauvais, Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai Jenkins, has been canceled after eight seasons.

Fox Stations Group has decided not to renew the Emmy Award-winning panel show for a season nine, Variety reported Friday.

The syndicated series premiered in 2013 and has seen a varying roster of hosts during its nearly decade-long tenure, including Tamar Braxton and Amanda Seales.

“In the end, the cast and crew of The Real did everything they could to downsize the show,” co-host Loni Love said in a statement. “We shot 7-8 shows in 3 days, no audience, turned a conference room into a studio, but in my opinion, Covid costs have killed this show.”

She added: ‘It was a great ride and thanks to the viewers for 8 great seasons!’

The current landscape of daytime television options will look very different in the 2022-23 season, as several major shows will not return.

Long-running staples, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Wendy Williams Show, Maury, The Doctors, and Dr. Oz all end.

In addition, some newer unscripted projects, The Nick Cannon Show and The Good Dish, have also been canceled.

When The Real first premiered, there was a panel of five female presenters: Tamera Mowry, Jeannie Mai, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon and Loni Love.

Tamar departed in 2016 and Insecure star Amanda Seales was added to the cast in 2020 as a replacement. Her tenure was short-lived, however, and she left after just six months.

Tamera left shortly afterwards and was then replaced by RHOBH star and actress Garcelle Beauvais.

After Seales’ departure, the actress had no nice things to say about her time on the show.

“I left The Real because it broke my mind…I was asked not to talk about certain things that felt like betrayal to my people and to me as a person,” she explained to comedian Godfrey in a concurrent Instagram live. .

“In addition, I didn’t want to be somewhere where I felt like people weren’t being honest with me and people were afraid of me because of my black femininity,” she added.

One particular occasion on the show raised a red flag in her mind when a white female producer was tasked with helping her put together a segment called Smart, Funny and Black.

“I was so excited to play my Smart, Funny and Black game on The Real,” she said before expressing her concern about the choice.

Seales thought those four black producers were more equipped to work on the segment.

“I was like, ‘Why are you producing this? and she said, “So and so it assigned to me,” the 39-year-old Los Angeles native said of the conversation she had with the white female producer at the time.

‘And I said, ‘But why would you produce this? You are a white woman. You don’t understand what we’re talking about.’

Seales went on to clarify her thought process about how segments and storylines are typically delegated, along with her own analogy.

‘You assign the different segments to people who can produce it as best as possible. It’s like we’re doing a snippet at the Sabbath dinner, [and] she was the only Jewish person on the staff, she should be in charge of that segment because that’s what she has the most expertise in.”

She went on to say, “I couldn’t stay in a place like that.”

While many well-known daytime shows will be absent next season, shows like The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Drew Barrymore Show have been revamped.

“I’m honored and grateful, but I also want to take this show to the next level and continue to innovate and be a game changer in the daytime space,” Barrymore, 47, said in a statement after her series was renewed for season three.

The new season of Drew will change format and be produced as two half-hour episodes and partners will have the option to run them sequentially, or in two separate series with the first 30 minutes following local newscasts on all CBS stations. .

Meanwhile, Jennifer Hudson and Sherri Shepherd will also be among the hosts of a series of shows that hit the scene.

The Jennifer Hudson Show is “positioned to become the new flagship” at Fox Television Stations, according to Variety, once Ellen DeGeneres ends her 19-season run later this year.

Sherri’s eponymous series will replace The Wendy Williams Show. The daytime vet has been guest host for Wendy since the star is on medical leave.
