NEW YORK — One day after Twentieth TV pulled “The Suze Orman Show” from the syndication marketplace, postponing it by a year, the company has cancelled its 2-year-old “Good Day Live.”
In a statement released late Friday, Twentieth said “the economics dictated the necessity to cease production.” Final broadcast takes place March 18.
Twentieth declined to make any executives available to expand on its statement, but “Good Day Live” has never found much of an audience.
The series is averaging a 0.9 household rating for the 2004-05 season. That’s below the 1.0 average rating the show delivered for the full 2003-04 season, a falloff that’s particularly noteworthy because Twentieth brought in a pair of TV-syndication veterans — Debbie Matenopoulos and Arthel Neville — as co-hosts with Steve Edwards to try to drive up the ratings.
