Mullally canned

NBC Universal has canceled The Megan Mullally Show. The syndicated daytime talk show debuted to weak ratings, causing affiliate stations to move it to less desirable time periods.

Until a replacement show is lined up, NBC will fill the spots with repeats of Bravo's Queer Eye, the new series iVillage Live, or repeats of the previously canceled Starting Over.

"I am extremely proud of the show we created and am thankful for the passion and tireless efforts of [executive producer] Corin Nelson and the entire staff," Mullally said in a statement.

Megan drew an average of 1 million daily viewers, helping it vie for the bottom slot of the daytime ratings. Daytime giant Oprah Winfrey earns an average of 8 million viewers.

The voice she used on will and grace was not her real voice you guys. If you had seen her talk show you would have known that- her real voice is quite normal and maybe that threw some people off a bit. I like meg, but you could smell it in the water- this show was not going to be on the air for long- it lacked something some sort of TV voo-doo,magic or perhaps a chemistry. Maybe she should have kept doing the obnoxoius, high pitched voice thing and then they could called it the Karen show it probably would have had better ratings- not to mention hilarious.

She had a talk show?

I wish they let her do a variety show (like planned) - now, that would have been a hit...

I can't say that this surprises me. I suppose she was hoping to lure the 'Will & Grace' fans. It is very hard for new talk shows to make it these days unless they have some gimmick or fan-base before the show starts. I think the last new one to be successful was 'Ellen', and that's because she had a fan-base from her stand-up comedy act as well as her prior sitcom.

I caught this show once by mistake because TBS replaced its 8am showing of Saved by the Bell with it. It was really bad and i can see why it got canceled. I didnt even make it through the whole show before i changed the channel because her voice was driving me crazy and the jokes that she tried to tell were not even funny. I hope TBS puts Saved by the Bell back where it use to be.

Mullally is one of the best comedians around! She has been nominated and awarded numerous emmys and SAGs. So don't just ignore that.

Yes, the show might have been a bit off, but Megan was always excellent and funny. I wish I could see her in a new comedy show ('cuase frankly, those of us living outside the US, had no chance of ever watching the show)...

Yea she should've done a show like Ali G, as Karen where she would ask them the stupidest, most provocative questions. And have a Borat version of Karen. Hee, that would've been fun.

Who cares? Megan is terrible and I did not care for Will and Grace the slightest bit!

And? I can't stand Megan or her voice and I can't stand Will and Grace!

as mean as it sounds i am pretty glad. My typical routine included getting up, getting juice, and watching saved by the bell on TBS before school started on TBS. maybe this will be back now.

We did not even have the show on a local channel where we live but i caught it a few times on TBS. I am not surprise it was cancelled.

The first show was horrible so I knew it was all over for her from then. Hope she can find something else, good, to do. Although she dosen't really need to, she still has Will andGrace money coming in.

I love Megan but the show wasn't that great. I knew it wouldn't last but I'm sure she'll bounce back.

Oh darn. I'm sad to see it go. However it will free up a slot on my VCR and I won't spend five hours a weekend trying to recap it.

When I watched the show I expected to see

a little of the vivacious, raunchy, naughty, outrageous Megan that we saw as Karen.I bet many viewers did. That would have been a interesting show, as it was it was deadly dull. What were they thinking?

No big shock. It started off badly when (in my area anyway) TBS aired it at 8am, when they moved it to 6am, it was obvious there was no hope for it.

Not only is her voice annoying, but her show was awful. She'd ask the guests the most typical, scripted questions ever as if she didn't know anything about them (or care), so that dragged it down a lot because it didn't tell us anything we really didn't already know. I mean, plus she had Amy Smart on there discussing Smith AFTER the show was canceled. So, obviously, they just taped a whole bunch of them at once and were too LAZY (or stupid) to catch their mistake. Either way, she got what she deserved and left the art of interviewing to the professionals.

I saw this coming. It wasn't a good show. It seemed to target woman and you could tell by the fact there were no guys in the audience. That would explain the ratings. There are just too many talk shows that are better than The Megan Mullally Show, so no one really cared to watch it.

Thank god for this, I couldn't stand her on that stupid show Will and Grace and couldn't stand her now, it is sad to see shows get cancelled but thank god for this one, I think I might go shouting it to the rooftops.

Thats basically what they said, if she only had the humor and punch that came with her Will&Grace character Karen Walker then it would've been a better hit. There are so many talk shows forming, its the new fad, but sorry to hear that hers might not make it :(

Wow this hits me the hardest here @ tv.com. I'm editor for the dang show!! That's sad it was a good show but I dunno if she had what it took to be a talkshow host. Clearly my suspicions were correct. I watched many episodes of this. It'll be hard to go the guide right now and switch it to "ended" :(

they always try to take popular stars (chevy chase anyone?) and make them into talk show hosts. i guess it worked with ellen, but no one else.
