Fox News at 10 is kaput

“Fox News at 10” has been canceled. The final broadcast will be on April 14 on KAYU-28.

The reason is right there in the ratings book: It pulled a 1.2 rating in the February sweeps, which is about as low as you can go without disappearing altogether.

The show is produced by KHQ. A spokesman said that co-anchor David Okarski will stay on as a reporter for KHQ. The other co-anchor, Maria Kotula, will be leaving the station.

This appears to be the end of what started out as a promising experiment. Although viewers say they want news at 10 p.m., apparently they are not willing to forgo network fare such as “ER” or “NYPD Blue.”

Or maybe they just didn’t like what they saw. This was the third incarnation of News at 10, and viewers never flocked to any of them.

The 10 p.m. slot on KAYU will be filled with repeats of “Ricki Lake,” beginning on April 17.
