John Ourand of SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY and SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL breaks the news today that the Versus TV show Jenn Sterger appears on, The Daily Line, has been canceled.
Ourand via Twitter:
“Versus has axed @jennifersterger’s show “The Daily Line” because of anemic ratings.”
Ah, the irony. Thanks to her reportedly reciprocal texting relationship with Brett Favre, Sterger has had her public profile explode in recent weeks. But that obviously didn’t translate to ratings.

We’re in the middle of a compelling NFL playoffs. The Jets just fired their head coach, and the Giants are about to host a divisional rival with whom they split two regular season games in a fascinating matchup. So what does the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS commit a significant amount of time and ink to on the first Monday back from the holidays? Former MAXIM and PLAYBOY pinup turned Jets Gameday host Jenn Sterger, of course!
(This is from the DAILY NEWS photo gallery, we swear to God.)
And making matters even more striking, they pull a botched Photoshop job on the “online sensation’s” face.
(Someone go fire the photo intern.)
Sure, Sterger is the kind of personality who might warrant an offseason story in April, when nothing is going on. But in the middle of the playoffs, with the Jets embroiled in a coaching search that may cost a popular college coach his job, Brett Favre hanging on a retirement decision by a thread and the NFL Draft just months away? Come on.
That’s before you consider all the time off many workers are returning from, with the public finally attacking the news full bore again now that everyone’s back at work. Don’t worry, we’ve got more photos of “The best of Jenn Sterger” from THE DAILY NEWS after the break.
