Nikki & Sara Live: MTV Series “Not Cancelled” But Not Coming Back

Nikki and Sara canceledMTV has decided to drop their late-night show Nikki & Sara Live after two seasons. The showcase for comedians Sara Schaefer and Nikki Glaser won’t be returning for season three.

Schaefer believes that the show wasn’t cancelled however and, on the duo’s podcast, offered her take on the show’s demise.

She said, “To clarify, we were not cancelled. We weren’t picked up. Canceled implies at mid-season they axed you because you were failing. We were not failing. I want to be very clear. Our ratings were up from season one. Our ratings were comparable, if not better, than every other cable, late night show. I just want to be very clear about that. ”

Schaefer continued, “I’m very proud of the show that we did. I’m very grateful that we got to do it. But, MTV just decided it wasn’t part of their programming future. And that’s okay. That’s their prerogative. They gave us a show to begin with and I have nothing but gratitude for that.”

Nikki & Sara Live debuted in January of this year and aired for 24 episodes. The series finale aired on October 29th.

    If a TV show finishes its season and it is not picked up for another season, then techically, the TV show IS cancelled.
