Apparently, Dr. Laura Schlessinger is just too hot for daytime television.
Or better yet, too cold. The conservative talker's eponymous syndicated TV talk show has been bumped into the wee hours of night from its original daytime slot in seven major cities, CBS announced Tuesday.
"The program got off to a slow start ... and has since seen further ratings erosion," the network said in a statement.
A CBS spokesman told Reuters that all seven stations would be moving "Dr. Laura" to the 2 a.m. slot.
'DR. LAURA' PARODY MIA: Daily Variety reports that an episode of the NBC hit comedy "Frasier" has been skipped in syndication this year. The specific episode in question features Christine Baranski in a guest role that openly parodies aforementioned daytime (now graveyard) talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger.
