E! News, Pop of the Morning and In the Room CANCELED as parent company NBCUniversal ‘streamlines’

E! has canceled three of its entertainment news programs, according to Variety

E! News, Pop of the Morning and In the Room were slashed as parent company NBCUniversal looks to ‘streamline its programming and restructure internally,’ a source told the industry publication.

Additionally, the harsh US economy brought about by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic ‘factored into’ the decision.

Layoffs are expected within the ten person strong New York-based production team.

However a source told Variety that ‘the company is trying to place some of those staffers in other positions within the network’.

The change represents a sharp change in direction for the basic cable channel, which last year announced an expansion to its slate of entertainment news programming.

Those plans were formulated under the stewardship of former Today producer Tammy Filler, who will remain at the network in her current role.

In May last year E! canceled Busy Phillips’ talk show, Busy Tonight, after just one year on the air.

The Dawson’s Creek star subsequently detailed her feelings about being canceled in an emotional Instagram post.

‘I work hard AF and love to prove people wrong and finally, the men will always try to fuck you over so f*** em and figure out something else,’ said the 41-year-old, along with a mirror selfie of her tear-streaked face.
