'FABLife' Ratings: Bad Reception Leads Tyra Banks To Quit After Two Months? [VIDEO]
Tyra Banks has quit her new talk show after just over two months.
As reports claim ratings for FABLife have been "disastrous" in recent weeks following a strong start in September, Banks announced her sudden and unexpected exit.
"This is a very difficult decision, but necessary. I will be devoting more time to my new, growing cosmetics company, TYRA Beauty, which is expanding faster than anticipated, as well as overseeing my company's other entertainment ventures," Banks told Us Weekly in a statement on Friday. "I will however continue to support the growth and success of FABLife, and greatly admire my fellow co-hosts and the talented production team behind the show."
Prior to Banks' exit, Page Six reported on the series' less-than-stellar ratings.
“The new ratings are beyond catastrophic,” an insider told the site in October of the talk show, which debuted as the No. 1 new syndicated talk show.
“The show’s a ratings disaster, specifically with [adults 25 to 54]. By comparison, Bethenny’s delivery of the [25 to 54 demographic] was 29 percent higher than ‘FABLife’ at the time of its cancellation," said a second source.
“ABC’s already looking for a replacement [for ‘FABLife’],” a third source added. “It’s not going to survive with a 0.7 [rating].”
According to Us Weekly, Banks will continue her role as executive producer until December. The remaining hosts of the series includes Chrissy Teigen, Leah Ashley, Lauren Makk and Joe Zee.
