Show Being Retooled
Dr. Laura Schlessinger\'s new television show is ailing.
The \"Dr. Laura\" syndicated talk show has drawn low ratings and protests from gay activists, and now production has been stopped for a week, officials said.
Show spokeswoman Linda Lipman said the move was part of a pre-planned hiatus. But it is surprising because the show premiered only last week.
The break will give Paramount a chance to retool the daytime show, according to Friday\'s Los Angeles Times and the New York Post.
