Variety is reporting plans for Craig Ferguson’s new syndicated talk show have been shelved by Tribune Broadcasting.
They say “the station group was behind the effort to launch a half-hour talk-variety strip designed to air in early evening timeslots starting fall 2015. But the roadblock was securing clearances in other key markets. Tribune and prospective distrib Debmar-Mercury could not line up enough affiliates to make the show viable”.
However, his gameshow Celebrity Name Game has been renewed by Tribune Broadcasting for a second season.
