NEW YORK - Martha Stewart's syndicated television show, "Martha Stewart Living," is being pulled from CBS's New York affiliate following the domestic maven's stock conviction.

WCBS will pull the plug on the show as of Monday and other CBS stations may follow suit, The New York Times and the New York Post reported in Saturday editions.

The show, which had fallen in the ratings, previously aired on WCBS at 2:05 a.m. On Thursday, Stewart was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the best host category for "Martha Stewart Living."

Stewart's conviction on four counts of conspiracy, making false statements and obstruction of justice sent reverberations through her media empire, which also includes a syndicated column and magazines.

The New York Times syndicate which distributes "Ask Martha," a column penned by Stewart, has not yet decided what it will do with the column, the Times reported.

But Scripps Networks said it would continue airing Stewart's cooking show, "From Martha's Kitchen."

"We will continue to air 'From Martha's Kitchen' in its regular daytime slot as we evaluate these new circumstances and how they affect our key constituents," Scripps spokeswoman Cindy McConkey told the Post.
