The Queen Latifah Show is the title of two American television talk show programs hosted by the actress, singer and entertainer Queen Latifah. The original The Queen Latifah Show ran from 1999 to 2001. The current The Queen Latifah Show debuted September 16, 2013, and was renewed for a second season in January 2014, and was canceled on November 21 2014.

The Queen Latifah Show (1999–2001)[edit]

This syndicated series aired from September 13, 1999, until August 31, 2001.[2][3] It was described as the "Dear Abby for the Hip-Hop Generation", with the series covering various topics and including interviews with celebrities and non-celebrities alike.[3]

The Queen Latifah Show (2013–present)[edit]

The current show premiered on September 16, 2013,[4][5][6] and is not a revival of her former production.

The Queen Latifah Show features celebrity interviews, human interest stories, musical performances, and Queen Latifah's take on pop culture news.[7][8] Latifah also ventures into communities across the country to share compelling stories, celebrates individuals who give back to their communities, and delivers life-changing surprises.[7]

The Queen Latifah Show is taped in front of a live studio audience at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California, and airs in broadcast syndication on CBS Television Stations.[9][10] The series is produced by Flavor Unit Entertainment, Overbrook Entertainment, and Sony Pictures Television.[11][12] The set for the series was designed by Lenny Kravitz's design firm, Kravitz Design.[13][14]

This incarnation debuted with the second-best daytime talk launch since Dr. Oz in 2009, premiering with a 1.7 rating/5 share primary-run household average in the weighted metered markets.[15][16] Latifah's premiere was also up 31% from its year-ago time periods and up 21% from its average lead-in.[17] In daytime's key demographic of women 25-54, the series surged 80% from last year and 29% from its lead-ins to a 0.9/5.[18][19]

On January 6, 2014, The Queen Latifah Show was renewed for a second season.[20] However, on November 21, 2014, the show was canceled by Sony due to declining ratings. Production of the series will shut down, taking effect on December 18, 2014, leaving new episodes to continue to be broadcast until late March 2015.[21]
