'Celebrity Rehab' In Midst of Final Season: Report

'Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew' is in the midst of its final season, according to a report in Radar Online. The reason, reportedly, has nothing to do with a mounting chorus of criticism the show has been getting from the substance abuse treatment community, but instead is because of Dr. Drew Pinksy's increasingly busy TV schedule.
"The decision was made to put the show on hiatus because Dr. Drew Pinsky is just too busy to continue to do the show," a source close to the show told Radar. "The amount of time Dr. Drew has to commit to treating celebrities on the show is a tremendous amount of time. [Dr. Drew] would absolutely love to revisit doing the show again in the future when he has the time. Dr. Drew really enjoyed doing the show, even though it could be very emotionally grueling at times."
Dr. Drew is indeed a busy man. HLN's 'Dr. Drew Show,' which has recently turned into nightly coverage of the Casey Anthony trial, airs every weeknight, as does his long-running radio show 'Loveline' every Sunday-Thursday. He's launching a new show in the fall called 'Life Changers,' a daytime program airing on the CW about real life people and their journeys through hardship.
