D.L. Hughley Breaks the News information

According to JimIn an age when there are hundreds of television channels, there’s a decent chance that you’ll be able to find a TV show that you like to watch. Unfortunately, with economics being what they are, there’s also a really good chance that it will be cancelled. The network execs have to answer to their stockholders and are less and less likely to take time to let shows grow an audience. Or, if the size of a series’ audience declines, they often have to axe them as well.

Here’s a “quick” listing of shows that won’t be back for the 2009 — 2010 TV season. If your favorite is on the list, you have our sympathies.

D.L. Hughley Breaks the News: CNN Show Cancelled After Controversial Comment

March 9, 2009
IMAGECNN has announced that they are ending the D.L. Hughley Breaks The News show after a short run of only a few months. The looming question is if it's truly just a matter of logistics, or whether the news network got more than what they bargained for with the controversial host. D.L. Hughley has been a popular comic for the past decade and recently co-starred on NBC's ill-fated Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip. Breaks the News debuted on CNN on October 25, 2008 as a comedy news show, shown weekly on Saturday nights. The self-described "news junkie" wanted to let everyone know that "This ain't your daddy's CNN." He interviewed a typical assortment of newsmakers, pundits, and ordinary people but with his own personal spin. The results were quite different than what you'd find elsewhere on the news network. While Hughley's show was anything but dull, it may have been a little too cutting-edge for CNN. Starting the show just days before Barack Obama won the presidential election, Hughley quickly raised the ire of some viewers. One of his first guests was a character named "Freddie Mac," a brightly-dressed pimp who apparently caused the financial crisis. Via Black Star News, Dr. Boyce Watkins complained that all of the show's humor comes from generalized stereotypes and that the host turned "the stellar Obama presidential campaign into a minstrel show."

Stand-up comic and actor D.L. Hughley describes his show this way, "This ain't your daddy's CNN." In a similar vein to Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, this CNN series is a mixture of humor, satire, and serious discussion about what's going on in the world today.
