U.S. Version of 'Jeremy Kyle' to End Run


British talk show host Jeremy Kyle apparently wasn't too popular this side of the pond. According to Broadcasting & Cable, Kyle's self-titled, syndicated talker won't be returning for a third season in the U.S. From the B&S article:

"We can confirm the U.S. version of The Jeremy Kyle Show won't be returning for a third season," said Debmar-Mercury copresidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein in a joint statement. "This is in no way a reflection of the quality of the show. Backed by a first-rate production team, Jeremy was amazing and showed all of us why he is such a rock star in the U.K. Simply put, Jeremy is one of the best hosts we have ever seen, and we expect to see more of him on U.S. television in the years ahead. Unfortunately, talk shows like this simply take time to build and, while we were seeing ratings progress in many markets, it wasn't enough to justify going forward with another season."
