RuPaul’s Daytime Talk Show Not Moving Forward

“RuPaul” was given a three-week trial run on Fox-owned stations

RuPaul Charles’ self-titled daytime talk show is not moving forward following its trial run.

The show, titled “RuPaul,” aired on select Fox-owned stations — including WNYW FOX 5 in New York and KTTV FOX 11 in Los Angeles — for three weeks this past summer, but will not continue with new episodes, according to an individual familiar with the matter.

Produced by Warner Bros. Television’s syndicated arm, Telepictures, the show was described as the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” host’s “modern take on the talk format.”

The series featured the drag queen-turned-TV host sitting down for interviews, discussing pop culture and providing beauty and makeup tips. Guests included James Corden, Paula Abdul, Senator Cory Booker and HGTV’s Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott.

“The Oprah Winfrey Show” alum Jill Van Lokeren served as executive producer on the talk show alongside Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell of World of Wonder.

Charles will continue to serve as host of the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” franchise, which was recently renewed for a 12th season at VH1 and is also produced by World of Wonder. Charles is also star of the scripted Netflix series “AJ & the Queen,” which he co-created alongside “Sex and the City” mastermind Michael Patrick King.
