According to Livesteez, DL Hughley’s show is in the dumps:

Comedian D.L. Hughley’s CNN show “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News” will reportedly cease production by the end of March 2009. Though the performer’s won’t have his regular Saturday night comedy/news program any longer, he will still be in association with the popular news network. The network reported some of the details of the situation in a statement released last week: “D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives. To accommodate this, we agreed upon a new role where he will be a contributor for the network based in Los Angeles. We are eager to continue our relationship with D.L., who is a tremendous talent and a valued colleague.” Though reviews of the show were mixed at best, Hughley still managed to pull in approximately 200,000 viewers each night. And those numbers likely spiked after the comedian’s interview with Republican National Chairman Michael Steele sparked a feud between the chairman and coservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

Everyone knows he was living a pipe dream anyways. Good luck in the future D.L.
