Star Jones's New Show Goes Off the Air
The former View host will continue to be a legal expert, the network says
Star Jones’s post-View television effort, The Star Jones Show, is going off the air by “mutual agreement” between her and TruTV, the network announced Thursday.
The live, 3 p.m. talk show, airing since September on the former Court TV, had been aimed at bridging the worlds of law and entertainment. Jones is a former Brooklyn prosecutor who got her start on TV as a commentator during the O.J. Simpson trial.
“Due to the rebranding and programming refocus of the network, TruTV and Star Jones Reynolds have mutually agreed to cease production of The Star Jones Show,” the network said. “Star will continue as a contributing legal expert on our weekday IN SESSION trial coverage. We appreciate the work she has contributed over the last few months and look forward to the next phase of our relationship.”
The show’s last day is Friday.
Jones famously left The View in early 2006, after telling PEOPLE that she had been “fired.”
