"Bethenny" will be signing off for the last time in May.

The talk show, hosted by former "Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel, has officially been canceled after one season on the air, according to Deadline.

The series, which tapes at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York, has delivered moderate ratings since its debut in September, averaging a 0.9 in households this season.

The decision was made by Telepicture Productions, which produces "Bethenny," after a deal with affiliates failed to be reached.

"I had a blast doing this show with Telepictures," Frankel said. "My entire staff worked so hard and made everyday so much fun. I am thankful for the experience and for all my fans who tuned in every day."

A new talk show hosted by Meredith Veira is expected to take over Frankel's soon-to-be-empty timeslot in most markets.
