Ricki Lake's return to daytime talk television is no more, TheWrap.com reports. Twentieth Television announced Monday that "The Ricki Lake Show," which premiered in September (and airs locally at 5 p.m. weekdays on WPIX/11), will not continue into the 2013-14 season. Though Lake, who hosted a popular talk show from 1994 to 2003, brought experience as well as familiarity to the new gig, she re-entered the arena at a time that saw considerable competition from new talk shows hosted by the likes of Katie Couric, Steve Harvey and Jeff Probst.
