Keke Palmer understands why her daytime talk show ended up getting the axe. Palmer recently joined Andy Cohen during a new episode of Watch What Happens Live, and she reflected on why Strahan, Sara & Kekewouldn’t be coming back.

Palmer co-hosted the show alongside Michael Strahan and Sara Haines before it was taken off of ABC’s schedule in March, with a daily coronavirus report — GMA 3: What You Need to Know — airing in its place.

When asked what her reaction was to her show getting cancelled, Palmer simply said, “Expected.”

“Here’s the thing, when the pandemic hit, that became all that was on our minds — the pandemic, corona, understanding COVID,” Palmer shared. “So I kind of knew that, if our show did come back, it would have to be much, much, much later [in the year].”

“Because our show is really about the audience. When you think about it, that’s what we do. We do a little bit of news, but it’s entertainment news. It’s really fun conversations and lightheartedness,” she added. “So it’s a different time now, and some of the conversations has changed, and I think it [pushed] us out.”
