‘The T.D. Jakes Show’ Cancelled After Only Six Months

life jakes 2

*It’s a wrap for “The T.D. Jakes Show.”

Bishop’s talker just got the ax after being on the air only six months, according to reports. Parent company Tegna opted not to renew the series due to low ratings.

“We are really proud of T.D. Jakes,” said Bob Sullivan, Tegna senior VP of programming. “The economics of daytime, not Jakes or the quality of the show itself, is what has taken us out of play for the second season, which is frustrating.”

The show premiered in Fall 2016 and aired primarily on Tegna-owned stations and repeated on OWN at 5 p.m. ET.

After two months of poor ratings, however, OWN moved the show from its daily evening slot to Sunday mornings, where it ran as a marathon beginning at 8 a.m. ET through the early afternoon.

  1. I am very disappointed to hear that you have canceled TD Jakes show. I have been an avid watcher of his show. I watch the show every day. I am a caucasian female and love the variety of topics that he shows and the people he helps. I think he is better than Oprah was. I can’t imagine why his show was canceled. I hope y’all will rethink canceling the show as it is such an amazing show!!
