AndyCoop got da Boot! If you were a fan of his talk show, get your tickets now for any remaining
Citing disappointing ratings, a studio executive, who insisted on not being identified because the studio had planned no official release on the decision, said on Monday that the entire talk television market has been struggling to build audiences. Mr. Cooper’s show, which is produced by Telepictures, will end after the summer of 2013.
The executive spoke because some of the stations that have been carrying Mr. Cooper’s show have begun making feelers about replacement shows, and the news was certain to leak out through one of them, the executive said.
The studio “could have renewed the show but could not create a viable economic business model to move forward,” the executive said.
