"We are extremely grateful to Marie Osmond, whose immense talent and dedication to excellence is unmatched in entertainment," said the network, which intends to offer more how-to shows during their daytime lineup. "Marie is a consummate professional and outstanding human being in every way possible. We have enjoyed working with her on the talk show and know her passion to create an offering of such high quality will find great success in syndication."

Marie's hour-long show, which had been billed as "an inspirational journey to help people make a difference in their own lives," will continue with new episodes through mid-August, according to the New York Post.
