Megan axed in Detroit

It looks like the beginning of the end for NBC Universal’s The Megan Mulually Show as NBC affiliate WDIV in Detroit has canceled the show and is being replaced by Ellen, which moves from 4p.m. to 10a.m. WDIV is launching a new newscast at 4p.m. that will go up against Oprah and will return King World’s Inside Edition to the 4:30pm time slot beginning Jan.8.

Inside Edition debuted on Jan. 9, 1989 in Detroit on WDIV in that exact time slot, leading out of syndicated reruns of The Cosby Show.

Inside Edition currently airs on ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV at 1am.
