“Dr.” Laura Cancelled in Philadelphia

Radio personality “Dr.” Laura Schlessinger’s new television show has suffered from poor ratings and pulled advertisers. As of today, a CBS affiliate in Philadelphia will no longer air the show. Other CBS affiliates announced on Nov. 7 that they would move the show to the post-1-AM time slot in crucial television markets like New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Television experts note that many shows moved to this time slot are cancelled. Dr. Laura has been the focus of protest, especially since Paramount announced that it would carry her television show, for her statements that gays and lesbians are “deviants” and “a biological error.”
