Twentieth Television has officially pulled the plug on The Ricki Lake Show after one season, the studio announced today.

After nine years away from television, The Talk show host went up against other veterans in the ratings, including Katie Couric and Ellen Degeneres. Lake's show continuously underperformed in comparison, though it was not picked up for syndication throughout the entire country.

Her show was officially billed as: "Ricki is not an expert. She's not a doctor, therapist or a super homemaker - she's a working mom trying to figure life out, and inviting her audience along for the ride."

"While we are proud of the topics the program tackled including childhood obesity, life-after the military, divorce, and addiction we were simply not able to breakthrough the crowded talk show marketplace," Stephen Brown, VP of programming & development for Twentieth Television, said in a statement released today.

Lake, however, isn't letting the news get her down.

"I am so proud of the shows we completed this season, sparking important conversations about everything from raising children to mental illness to suicide prevention to coming out. I will continue to be an active and passionate voice for subjects that are close to my heart through a variety of platforms -- and a return to my documentary filmmaking work with Abby Epstein. I am excited to create meaningful and provocative films similar to our 2007 project, The Business of Being Born."

The remaining episodes of The Ricki Lake Show will play until September.
