The Queen Latifah Show gets the axe

New York - The Queen Latifah Show will be ending after this season.

Distributor Sony Pictures Television said on Friday the show will air original episodes through March.

The daytime talk show was launched in fall 2013 and found a so-so reception in its freshman year. This season it named a new executive producer and reaffirmed its motivational, upbeat elements.

Here is a little taste of The Queen Latifah Show:

Queen Latifah vowed "to be more loose, more playful, more fun, more provocative". But it didn't work. Viewership this season is down from last season.

Even so, Sony thanks Queen Latifah and her team for creating a program they're all "very proud of".

The 44-year-old singer-actress will next star in an HBO biopic of blues legend Bessie Smith.
