Oprah Scraps Friday Roundtable, Mark Consuelos
The New York Post is reporting that Mark Consuelos will no longer be appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Fridays.
"Oprah" is moving away from the Friday-panel format it introduced last season, when Consuelos, et al. discussed a variety of topical issues each week.
Consuelos' rep declined comment yesterday, but sources say the actor, who's married to "Live's" Kelly Ripa, was inked to only a one-year deal.
The article indicates the decision to scrap the round table may have been ratings related. Alexandra Wentworth and Gayle King will continue to appear as "regulars" on the show.
