CNBC is canceling “Dennis Miller” in an attempt to revive the network’s struggling primetime, according to Variety. “Dennis Miller” will be replaced with a second airing of “Mad Money With Jim Cramer” at 9 p.m. ET. The network will also replace “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” with a new business show at 7 p.m. that will debut in the third quarter.
Both moves are part of a repositioning of CNBC’s primetime back to the network’s focus on financial news and away from failed attempts at entertainment, according to the report.
I’m a fan of Miller but found his show unwatchable. As I wrote in reviewing the first episode,
I just watched as much of the debut of Dennis Miller’s CNBC show as I could bear. It was, to be kind, not very good. Maybe this was opening first day jitters and the show will hit a groove after a few episode. If it doesn’t get better, though, the execs at the network will rue the day they cancelled Alan Keyes.
I watched sporadically for a few weeks. It never got markedly better.
