MSNBC has pulled the plug on Phil Donahue's low-rated talk show after six months on the air. His final show runs Friday night. "We're proud of the program and we're disappointed that the show was not able to attract the viewership we had hoped for and expected," said MSNBC president Erik Sorenson. "We thank Phil and his staff for their dedication, commitment and passion."
