Sometimes the second time around does not win the prize. It has been announced that the syndicated talk show, The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled after its’ second try at success; the original Queen Latifah Show aired from 1999 to 2001. After only two seasons, we have to say goodbye to the “Queen of Rap” who couldn’t quite capture an audience to become the “Queen of Talk”.

It has been announced that production on the program is slated to stop by the end of 2014, while new episodes will stop airing in March 2015. The Queen Latifah Show was launched in 2013, and was executive-produced by Jada Pinkett-Smith.

The program’s producers issued a statement regarding the ending of the show as follows below.


“We want to thank Dana, the producers and the entire staff of The Queen Latifah Show for creating a program that we are all very proud of.” “Thank you also to our terrific station partners and advertisers who supported the show.”


Queen Latifah also took to her Facebook page to write a letter to herself as follows:


“Dear Dana,

Just a little note to say Thank You…

Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running.

Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed “True Grit”!

Your Family, Partners, Staff and Crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of that! Not everyone can say the same.

You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show.

We truly changed people’s lives for the better.

So… STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG, and most importantly, STAY OPEN… There is so much more God has in store!

Lovingly, You!

P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome…believe in yourself and continue to fly.”
