After September 22, Pinsky won’t be making house calls on your TV anymore.

Executive in charge, Ken Jautz, put it like this:

Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” Jautz said. “Dr. Drew has been an authoritative voice on addiction and on many other topical issues facing America today.

With Grace leaving in October, the roll-out is going to move slowly, but the big shakeup will reshape HLN’s programming and appeal. Whether it’s for the better remains to be seen.
