You will be missed.'" - Dolly Parton on the death of Whitney Houston
"It gives me great pleasure to introduce the newest member of our ‘Live!’ family. We are honored to have him — Michael Strahan!” - Kelly Ripa announcing her new co-host
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives,” - Mitt Romney on those who won't vote for him
"Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets." - President Obama to Mitt Romney during a debate
“I’ve got a job to do here in New Jersey that’s much bigger than presidential politics, and I could care less about any of that stuff. I have a job to do. I’ve got 2.4 million people out of power. I’ve got devastation on the Shore. I’ve got floods in the northern part of my state. If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me. ” - New Jersey Governor Chris Christine on the election, which was to take place days after super storm Sandy
"Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America, the best is yet to come..." - President Obama after winning a second term
"This election is over, but our principles endure." - Mitt Romney during his concession speech
"Oppan Gangnam style," rapper Psy in the most-viewed YouTube video ever
"After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours... " - Gen. David Petraeus in a letter to staff announcing his resignation for having an affair with his biographer
"Evil visited this community today." - Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy on the day 27 people were shot to death at Sandy Hook Elementary School
"The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. They had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own. Among the fallen were also teachers — men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams... So our hearts are broken today — for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost..." - President Obama's first address to the nation after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings

No lie detector needed. The truth is the U.S. version of the Jeremy Kyle show never found an audience and has been canceled. The show averaged only a 0.5 rating and was one of the lowest-rated syndicated shows in America. It made it to season two only because it earned a better international audience. Jeremy's popular UK talker will remaining the air. The Jeremy Kyle Show joins Anderson Live as shows that will not be going forward. Both shows will air a mix of new and old episodes through next summer.
