Clinton News Network Canceles Dr. Drew's Show Because He Dared To Question Hillary's Health
HLN has canceled its appointment with “Dr. Drew.”
The current-affairs show, hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky (“Celebrity Rehab,” radio’s “Loveline”), has been axed after 5 ¹/₂ years. It will be replaced — at least for the time being — with reruns of “Forensic Files” and CNN originals (documentaries, etc.).
Pinsky’s show premiered in April 2011, but viewership remained low throughout its run. In March, HLN — a sister network of CNN — moved the show from 9 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz said in a statement.
