Ronan Farrow show canceled by MSNBC

MSNBC is pulling the plug on two of its daytime shows, Ronan Farrow Daily and The Reid Report.

The two hosts, Farrow and Joy Reid, both acknowledged the news of the cancellations in tweets late Thursday.

"Excited about new role -- more to come soon," Farrow tweeted.

Farrow, the son of actress Mia Farrow, had been on the air about a year with the network.

And Reid tweeted: "When one door closes, others open."

MSNBC had hoped that Farrow's high profile with younger viewers -- he has 276,000 followers on Twitter -- would help draw an audience.

But the two shows, which aired at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. ET, had suffered from very low ratings.

One day earlier this month, Farrow's ratings had fallen to 11,000 viewers in the key 25-to-54 demographic. That placed it well behind not only Fox News, CNN, CNBC & HLN but also behind Al Jazeera America.
