The syndicated TV talk show of Laura Schlessigner, criticized by homosexual rights groups and snubbed by advertisers and viewers, taped its final episode earlier this week in Los Angeles. Reruns may continue to air through the fall on certain more provincial stations.
Poor ratings had prompted many stations in major television markets to air the program in the middle of the night. Our local CBS-affiliate chose to air the program at 2AM.
In a written statement, Schlessinger said, "I believe it could have earned a substantial audience in time, but the television advertiser boycott precluded that."
Will we have the privilege of any additional comments, Dr. Laura???
