MTV cancels 'Alexa Chung'

Daytime talk show to end its run Dec. 17

MTV is unplugging its daytime talk show "On the Air With Alexa Chung." The series won't return after its Dec. 17 finale, which wraps up the show's second season.

Meanwhile the network's new show "Teen Mom" was the channel's highest-rated debut of the year on Tuesday night, drawing 2.1 million viewers.

"This series continues the story of some of the characters we first saw and loved during 'Sixteen and Pregnant,' taking us deeper into their reality of being a teenage mother," said Tony DiSanto, MTV president. "It's great to build a new franchise for our brand that connects with our audience in such a big way and shines a light on such an important issue."
