“While there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue,” CBS said in a statement.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Roland Martin spoke with Hall about his ratings slump on “NewsOne Now” back in November. “It’s a crowded market,” he said. “There are too many Jimmies in late night, and if urban American supports my show, I could survive in a crowded market.”
Speaking on his show’s cancellation, Hall was realistic.
“We all knew it would be a challenge,” Hall said in a statement released by CBS. “I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created.”
Diversity in late-night television is rare and Hall’s return was a breath of fresh air. Though, apparently, enough people didn’t think so.
The question now is: Who will take Hall’s place?
