New York: ‘The Nate Berkus Show,’ starring Oprah Winfrey`s favorite interior designer, will fold at the end of its current, second season.

The decorating-centered show will still air the remainder of its season. The series premiered last year, but never caught ratings fire.

Winfrey, a champion of Berkus, left the airwaves earlier this year to focus on her OWN network. But a person close to the Berkus show told TheWrap that it will not be following Winfrey to OWN.

"After careful consideration, we have decided that `The Nate Berkus Show` will not return for a third season in the fall," Sony Pictures Television and Harpo Studios said in a joint statement. "We are grateful for the hard work and heart that Nate, Corin Nelson and their entire team have poured into the show, and we`re very proud of what they`ve delivered."

Berkus leaves a daytime landscape that will soon be crowded with new shows from Jeff Probst and Katie Couric, among others.

The show`s end was first reported by Broadcasting & Cable.
