Bad news for fans of Marie Osmond — it seems her proposed talk show, Marie, won’t be hitting the airwaves anytime soon.

Program Partners announced today that the show won’t be going forward with its original Fall 2009 launch, citing the economy and recent downturns in broadcasting and advertising.

“I want to express my deep appreciation for the faithful support and dedication shown by the numerous stations,” Marie stated from backstage at the Flamingo hotel showroom in Las Vegas. “It was my sincere desire to return their enthusiastic responses by producing an exceptional talk show for their fall schedules; produced with the high quality that is associated with the Marie Osmond brand for over four decades.  This project, under proper conditions, still remains a strong passion of mine.”
