Less than 4 months since its debut in the 8 pm timeslot, MegaTV has decided to cancel “3 Caras de la Moneda” due to dismal ratings.  An inside source tells me the show “just didn’t connect with viewers.”

The show will continue to air in repeats this week, until the new programming lineup kicks in.

The show’s hosts, Leticia Callava, Candela Ferro and Olga Dager will not remain with the company. El Nuevo Herald reported on Friday that Candela Ferro would join MegaTV’s gossip show “Paparazzi Magazine,” but the network’s spokesman affirms that’s not the case.

MegaTV announced that starting Monday, June 18, the new programming slate which will begin at 5 pm, is as follows:

5 pm:  Videos of radio programs from New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Puerto Rico.

6 pm:  “Mega News,” with anchors María Alejandra Requena and Alejandro Marcano Santelli.

7 pm:  “Paparazzi Magazine,” with hosts Orietta de Luque and Javier Ceriani.

8 pm: “Passione,” Brazilian telenovela

9 pm: “Esta noche tu Night,” with host Alexis Valdés

10 pm: “Bayly,” with host  Jaime Bayly.
