'Donny & Marie' cancelled
Jam! Showbiz 16Jun00 A2

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- The syndicated TV talk show hosted by Osmond brother and sister Donny &Marie was cancelled Thursday according to Columbia Tristar Television Distribution, the show's distributor. The show was to enter its third season next year, but low ratings led to its cancellation.

"The show has a good station lineup, but unfortunately we are disappointed that while we did have increases in ratings this year, they did not come up sufficiently enough to make economic sense. This is not an inexpensive show," Columbia Tristar Television Distribution president Barry Thurston told Variety.

While the show did have some success, as one of only six syndicated shows to enjoy a ratings increase over the previous year in May, it had a serious setback when WNYW-TV in New York City dropped the show from its schedule.
