BET Cancels “The Mo’Nique Show”

Mo’Nique Gone After Two Seasons

Our favorite hollerin’ late-night talk show host, Mo’Nique, will be coming off the air after only two seasons. The show which airs on BET, was the only late-night talk show geared specifically toward African-Americans.

’The Mo’Nique Show’ will be on production hiatus beginning in the Fall,” BET spokesperson Kobe Swanson tells EURweb. “However, new episodes of the show will continue to air throughout the summer. Mo’Nique Hicks and ‘The Mo’Nique Show’ are important to the BET Networks family and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her.”

Monique’s side Rodney Perry reported the following:

This didn’t appear to be an issue of ratings. I didn’t have time to do an entire season’s check on ratings so I sampled four weeks in April, 2011 vs. April 2010. Ratings from April 5 to April 29, 2010 averaged 615,000 viewers a night. From April 4 to April 28, 2011, her show averaged 586,000. That’s only a five percent drop.

I’m definitely sad to see her go.
