Netflix has cancelled its comedy talks series “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” and “The Break With Michele Wolf”. Both series premiered earlier this year.
Netflix declines to release viewership information for its original shows, so it is not clear what size audiences Wolf and McHale drew. The axing follows on from Netflix’s cancelling last year of Chelsea Handler’s celebrity talk show.
Whether the streaming service will further retreat from the variety-talk format is unclear, but new shows from Hasan Minhaj and Norm Macdonald are on the way along with more specials from David Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld.
