Dr. Drew is no more, but the armchair doctor didn't lose his TV gig over comments he made about Hillary Clinton. An HLN insider told The Wrap that the decision to cancel Dr. Drew Pinsky's show, Dr. Drew On Call, was made "weeks" before he made headlines for evaluating Clinton's medical records during an ABC radio interview. The source reiterated that HLN does not cancel shows hastily and that many people lost their jobs due to the network's decision.
According to Deadline, HLN will focus on a straight news format with new shows hosted by CNN's Erica Hill, Michaela Pereira and Ashleigh Banfield. While Dr. Drew's show will end next month, Pinsky will remain a contributor for CNN Worldwide.
