COMEDY CENTRAL CANCELS "THE SARAH SILVERMAN SHOW"
Released by Miss TV Girl
Comedy Central has cancelled "The Sarah Silverman Show" after three season on the air.
I must admit I was never a fan of this show, after watching four or five episodes from season one I bailed and never returned. The show just wasn't funny or entertaining to watch and I say this as a fan of Sarah Silverman.
The sitcom debuted in February 2007 as one of Comedy Central's biggest premieres to date and garnered itself a season two renewal. After season two ended there was some behind the scenes drama when when executive producers Sarah Silverman, Dan Sterling, and Rob Schrab threatened to quit after the network asked them to cut the TV show budget . A deal was eventually cut with MTV's Logo channel to rerun the episodes and a third season was announced.
However, it took a year for the series to return and the ratings suffered, which prompted the network to move the show from its 10:30pm to midnight. This move I am sure marked the beginning of the end of the show.
Are you sad to see "The Sarah Silverman Program go?
