Versus Cancelling Jenn Sterger's TV Show

By Tony Mangia


Versus Sports Network is cutting the cable on "The Daily Line" TV show, hosted by Jenn Sterger, for lousy ratings.  Sterger is the woman in the middle of the ongoing NFL investigation of Minnesota Viking quarterback Brett Favre concerning amorous voice mails and lewd photos sent to her two years ago.

Meier Raivich, a spokesperson for Versus, confirmed the cancellation of the out-of-bounds interactive sports show due to lack of interest.  In it's seven month run, "The Daily Line" was a ratings black hole averaging 53,000 viewers and a microscopic 0.06 rating.  The last show will be on Thursday, Nov. 4.

Even with all the publicity surrounding the NFL's investigation of Favre, the four-night-a-week show couldn't achieve decent ratings.  Sterger's manager said the canning was 'unfortunate' and "part of the business."

It remains to be seen if the perky host will discuss the Favre allegations on the show before it gets thrown off the air next week.  Sterger has so far refused to speak with NFL investigators about the 2008 voice mails and texts while denying reports she is looking to get a monetary settlement with the shamed QB.  Unemployment has always been a good incentive to change some one's mind about money.

While the former-Jets sideline "hostess" has gotten the boot and ponders her next career move, Favre is wearing one and wonders if his football legacy is over.  On Sunday, Favre will limp into a game against the Patriots on a broken ankle and his consecutive game streak on the line.

Versus, the only channel where you can find hippo-hunting, will replace "The Daily Line" with a hockey show.
