*It’s a wrap for “The T.D. Jakes Show.”

Bishop’s talker just got the ax after being on the air only six months, according to reports.

Parent company Tegna opted not to renew the series due to low ratings.

“We are really proud of T.D. Jakes,” said Bob Sullivan, Tegna senior VP of programming. “The economics of daytime, not Jakes or the quality of the show itself, is what has taken us out of play for the second season, which is frustrating.”

The show premiered in Fall 2016 and aired primarily on Tegna-owned stations and repeated on OWN at 5 p.m. ET.

After two months of poor ratings, however, OWN moved the show from its daily evening slot to Sunday mornings, where it ran as a marathon beginning at 8 a.m. ET through the early afternoon.
