    CBS shelves talk show featuring Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn before it reaches the air

    Jerry O’Connell doesn’t only kill sitcoms. The actor, who has something of a reputation for starring in short-lived TV comedies, has expanded his horizons and is now apparently giving talk shows the kiss of death.

    Confidenti@l is told that CBS execs have pulled the plug on a daytime show headed by O’Connell and his wife, Rebecca Romijn, before airing a single episode.

    An insider says the network excitedly courted the “Stand By Me” star because he impressed them with several successful outings as a guest host on rival ABC’s “The View.” But we’re told they thought better of it after three test episodes got a cool response.

    A second source said producers of the unnamed show had selected crew members for the show, but the prospects of regular work soon evaporated.

    When news of the project broke in October, it was reported that the network was investing heavily in it, and hoped the show would be a breakout hit in 2015.

    It was even hyped as a replacement for Queen Latifah’s talk show, which was canceled in November.

    Apparently the tide turned rapidly, because Confidenti@l’s source says the series has been shelved indefinitely and there are no plans for a 2015 launch at all.

    O’Connell has had a famously unfortunate string of bad luck with TV comedies.

    Soon after the demise of his legal laugher “The Defenders,” O’Connell quipped to Howard Stern, “Look, my shows get canceled very quickly, Howard,” during an appearance to promote “We Are Men” — which itself was axed after two episodes.

    In happier news, O’Connell is getting ready for a turn on Broadway, appearing in “Living on Love” alongside Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”) and opera singer Renée Fleming.

    The show, O’Connell’s second appearance on the Great White Way after starring in “Seminar” back in 2012, begins April 1 at the Longacre Theater and will run for an 18-week engagement.

    Reps for O’Connell and CBS did not return calls for comment.
