Uh oh. Australian TV producer Mark Burnett, who's been an integral part of the Oprah Winfrey Network's launch, will have one less series on the network's line-up.

Variety reports that Burnett's untitled daytime talk show has been canceled, citing OWN CEO Christina Norman, who tells the outlet the network is choosing to focus on its prime time slate.

The daily show, modeled after "The View" and "The Talk," was reportedly supposed to premiere in March -- but, two months out, no casting announcement had been made.

Burnett is currently producing, and actively participating in, one of the flagship series for OWN, "Your OWN Show." The grand prize of the reality competition is a six-episode commitment for a new series on the network, also produced by Burnett.
