Another day another daytime talk show gets the ax.
Just one day after news dropped that Nick Cannon’s talk show was being canceled after 6 months, it’s being reported that ‘The Real’ is also on the chopping block.
According to The Jasmine Brand, the show will not be returning for a season 9.
Despite winning awards and going viral with their interviews, sources tell the site the show will be wrapping up this year. Insiders claim Fox has decided to pull the plug on the SallyAnn Salsano-produced program. The show has been struggling with ratings for months and the producers have been working overtime to try and spice up the content.
The current lineup of hosts consists of Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Garcelle Beauvais. The original lineup — when the show launched in 2013 — included Tamera Mowry-Housley and Tamar Braxton.
On Sunday (March 13) Love took to instagram to address news about the show.
“I got a call from he studio,” she wrote. “No official has been made about The Real. I will be ok but please give grace to the 150 plus crew members who this may effect. We will finish season 8 and wait for official word.”

Love has also been filling in at E! co-hosting “Daily Pop” and “Nightly Pop” as well as hosting her podcast on Cafe Mocha Radio.
If true, “The Real” joins a long list of talk shows canceled this year including programs from Jerry Springer Cannon and Dr. Oz’s daughter. Meanwhile a new crop of shows have been announced hosted by Sherri Shepherd and Jennifer Hudson.
