HLN Confirms 'The Joy Behar Show' Has Not Been Renewed
Behar's last show taping will be mid-December.
As THR previously reported, Joy Behar's HLN show will end its two year run at the year's end.
"The show has not been renewed," confirms a spokesperson Thursday.
Behar’s last show taping will be mid-December. One of HLN’s current programs will move into the 10 p.m. timeslot, but the Turner-owned cable news network is not prepared to make an announcement on the new line-up just yet.
“I am very proud of the show that we created at HLN and I owe tremendous thanks to the show team who made it possible,” Behar said in a statement.
Added HLN general manager Scot Safon, “Joy and her team produced over 500 episodes of a show that featured news-making interviews, great conversation and plenty of humor. We thank Joy for the many memorable moments she gave the HLN audience.”

While Behar's show has been a critical ratings driver for CNN's sister network -- up 38 percent in the third quarter -- HLN is believed to be shifting its focus beyond entertainment news and trial coverage. Safron recently told TV Newser that the network would be adding election coverage with a focus on the people behind the politics and military coverage.
The recently married Behar will continue as a co-host on ABC's The View.
