It is being reported that The Insider will be coming to an end after 13 seasons on the air. The syndicated newsmagazine, which covers trending celebrity and entertainment news, has increasingly struggled in the ratings in recent years, with viewership among the lowest compared to other similarly-formatted shows.
Premiering in 2004 as a companion series to Entertainment Tonight, The Insider began with the concept of taking viewers behind the scenes of the entertainment industry, with inside stories and interviews. The show went on to experiment with several formats during the course of its run, settling on coverage of the most-current entertainment news complimented by red carpet coverage and interviews.
The Insider will air its final episode in early September.
