The Meredith Vieira Show is allegedly in jeopardy of being cut from NBC’s lineup early next year.

According to the New York Post, the show will be canceled sometime in March due to low-ratings.

In an effort to boost her ratings, the network changed her format and debuted a new one in September. However, it’s premier had a 0.8 household rating, which was down 50 percent from its first-season premiere in 2014, the Post reported. 

Vieira has some fierce daytime competition, as she battles against fellow hosts Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey, Wendy Williams and Dr Phil for viewers.

‘The Meredith Vieira Show is on hiatus for two weeks for the holidays. Production will resume in January. No announcement regarding Season 3 has been made,’ a source close to NBC told the Post. 

NBC was reportedly exploring a View-style talks show with several hosts to possibly replace the 61-year-old’s show, the Post reported. 

The mother-of-three has previously said of returning to the daytime show this season: ‘It’s not something I ever thought I would do when I left Today.’

She added that she wanted to do ‘a show from home,’ so producers ‘created my family room’ for the set.

Neither NBC or Vieira has commented about the Post’s report.

In November, she told the Post that she didn’t miss The View after leaving the show roughly nine years ago.  

‘I miss my friends, but … it’s changed a lot. I’ll always care about [the show], but for me it was time to try something different,’ she said at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s 25th annual gala.

‘It’s hard when you do syndication,’ she explained at the time to the Post. 

‘I don’t have the luxury of having years to do it anymore. 

‘I feel like I’m always watching the clock with anxiety. You never know when they might say, well, we’ve run out of time for you.’
