BET Cancels Late-Night Talk Show, ‘The Rundown With Robin Thede’

Another day, another brilliant Black show taken from us!

BET has confirmed that critically acclaimed late-night talk show, The Rundown with Robin Thede, will not be returning for a second season. During its run, host Thede was the only African-American female host in late-night TV.

“At this time BET Networks has decided not to renew The Rundown with Robin Thede. We have so much love and respect for our Unicorn and look forward to finding ways to continue in partnership with Robin,” BET said in a statement.

“I’m thankful that BET took a chance on me and the show,” Thede told Variety. “I’m already in development on several other projects and I’m looking forward to hosting the TCA Awards on August 4.”

Thede also shared the sad news on her own social media, taking to Instagram to let fans know the show suffered from low ratings.

“Classic ‘High critical praise/Low ratings.’ Thanks to my staff/crew for being so dedicated, funny & brilliant. I’m so proud of what we made. And thanks for watching! We did it for all of YOU. Except Ben Carson. *body roll*.”
