Ricki Lake tapes last episode of talk show today
Ricki Lake is taping the last episode of her eponymous talk show today. She made the bittersweet announcement on Twitter.
Last day of taping @rickilakeshow!Happy and so very grateful.:) xoxo— Ricki Lake (@RickiLake) March 21, 2013
Lake, a Hastings-on-Hudson native, launched "The Ricki Lake Show" last fall. She told Newsday Westchester that the show differed from her previous talk show because "who I was at 24 when I started my old show is pretty different from who I am now at 43."
The other key difference was that while her old gabfest lasted 11 years, Lake's new show was canceled last month after a single season. The show received low ratings compared with freshman talk shows hosted by Katie Couric and Steve Harvey.
“The Ricki Lake Show” airs weekdays at 4 p.m. on WPIX. There is no word yet on when the last episode will air.
