The recycled news magazine “A Current Affair,” which ran for a decade its first time around, has been canceled less than eight months after returning to the air.
The Twentieth Television series, which launched in March with host Tim Green, will be replaced by “Geraldo at Large,” a half-hour news show with Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera.
“A Current Affair” will air through October. Rivera’s show will take over its time slots on KTTV-TV Channel 11 and other Fox-owned-and-operated stations in November.
The syndicated series first aired from 1986 to 1996 with Maury Povich and Maureen O’Boyle serving as anchors. The new show debuted last March with Green, a former NFL player, author and Fox Sports commentator.
