E! to Pull 'Busy Tonight' Late Night Talk Show

E's Busy Tonight will end in May according to the show's star Busy Philipps, who announced the late night talk show's demise in a tweet last night.

Busy Tonight, which launched last November, showcased Philipps providing her opinions on the latest pop culture stories and trending topics through celebrity guest interviews and original comedic segments. In the tweet Philipps says that the show, executive produced by Tina Fey, will end on May 16, adding that she's "proud" of what she's accomplished. 

"I'm beyond proud of what we've built in such a short period of time and I'm hopeful we can find the right place for the show to live on," Philipps said.

E! said in a statement: Busy Tonight's last episode for E! will air Thursday, May 16 with a special celebratory half-hour. Busy is a hilarious and charismatic talent and we are grateful to the entire Busy Tonight team who has delivered countless laughs and heartwarming moments in what will be over 100 episodes."
