MSNBC has ended Alec Baldwin's short-lived interview program, two weeks after the actor's outburst at a photographer that included an anti-gay slur.
The NBCUniversal-owned cable channel confirmed Tuesday that the network and Baldwin had mutually agreed to end "Up Late," which had also suffered low ratings since its October debut.
“We are jointly confirming that 'Up Late' will not continue on MSNBC,'" Baldwin and MSNBC said in a joint statement. MSNBC added: “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.”
Earlier this month, the cable channel suspended the show for two weeks following Baldwin's caught-on-camera tirade in New York City. Baldwin apologized, and the show was supposed to resume production on Friday.
