Eyemark, 20th ax ‘Elliott’

Eyemark Entertainment and Twentieth TV officially pulled the plug on “The Gordon Elliott Show” Wednesday, the companies confirmed.

The move has been expected since the show went on an unplanned production hiatus last month (Daily Variety, Feb. 14). Eyemark Entertainment senior vice president of programming and development Jim Dauphinee broke the final news to Elliott and executive producer Joni Holder Wednesday, sources said.

After moving to the CBS O&Os last fall, “The Gordon Elliott Show” suffered from low ratings all season. During the four weeks overlapping the February sweeps, “Gordon” averaged a 1.6, which was down 16% from last February, the worst loss of any talkshow.

While officials, until Wednesday, consistently denied the show would be canceled, Twentieth did not actively renew the talker at January’s NATPE confab, and the CBS stations made their intentions for the show clear when they bought other programs to air in the talker’s timeslots this fall. While enough episodes, 130, have been produced to keep originals on the air through the May sweeps, stations often downgrade shows they know won’t be returning.
