Stage and screen star Megan Mullally's nationally syndicated talk show, "The Megan Mullally Show," has been canceled by NBC Universal, according to Variety.

The daily one-hour show — which tapes in Los Angeles, CA — debuted Sept. 18. "The Megan Mullally Show" featured "a mix of celebrities, real people, music and comedy," according to an NBC release.

"The Megan Mullally Show" is slated to make its final airing Jan. 26, the trade publication reported.

Best known for her role as Karen on the NBC series "Will & Grace," Mullally is remembered by theatregoers as Rosemary Pilkington in the 1995 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying opposite Matthew Broderick. Her other stage credits include Marty in the 1994 revival of Grease. She has also performed her one-woman musical, Sweetheart, and numerous concert gigs at Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Chicago’s Goodman Theater and elsewhere.

The actress has previously hosted "Saturday Night Live" and subbed for David Letterman on CBS' "The Late Show."
