RuPaul’s talk show premiered over the summer with the hope of being a huge success. Guests included Sen. Cory Booker, Blac Chyna, Ciara and many more. However, it was a no from viewers. The show has been canceled.

TV Line confirms the news. The show was executive produced by Jill Van Lokeren, who was a producer on The Oprah Winfrey Show. When The RuPaul Show premiered, she told The Hollywood Reporter,  “He has what it takes. Beyond the skill and the talent, he's a natural-born producer. And at this time, this moment in the world with everything he stands for, to me, it's why I'm here right now. I can't even tell you how much I believe in him — his voice, his message, his mission, his personality, his humor. It's exactly what is missing in the world."
