One of BET’s highly rated nightly shows may have been cancelled, according to new reports that state that Oscar-winning actress turned talk show host Mo’Nique‘s nightly slot has been put on an “indefinite hiatus,” which is a big ol’ fancy phrase for CANCELLED.
According to AJCRadio TV Blog, writer Rodney Ho contacted the network to confirm the status of the much loved show. He later got an email from a BET rep which said “The Mo’Nique Show will be on production hiatus beginning in the fall.”
Sidekick to the show Rodney Perry is alleged to have confirmed in a text, “I was told indefinite hiatus.”
He later went on to say that his experience of working on the show has been enjoyable.
“We did some good work. And I think the show is significant. There hasn’t been an outlet for people of color late night since Arsenio. They haven’t had this type of investment ever. We did 300 shows over two seasons. That’s a huge investment.” He continued, “I’m selling out shows now, that’s a win.”
Awww … and another good show bites the dust! Wonder what the problem was though?
