After numerous failed new series and complaints from employees about her management style, E! Entertainment Television President Suzanne Kolb is being kicked out, industry blogger Nikki Finke reported on Monday. Finke, who called Kolb "an unmitigated disaster atop the pop culture channel," noted that the channel’s ratings are down 20 percent from 2013 (when they were down an additional 20 percent from 2012). Finke said that NBC Universal Cable Chairman Bonnie Hammer has been moving slowly in the search for a replacement for Kolb. She quoted an unnamed source as saying, "It’s a delicate situation. She’s got to find the right person."
