Talkshow with Spike Feresten: FOX Cancels Late Night Comedy Show, No Season Four

Talkshow with Spike FerestenThere are more changes in store for FOX’s late night schedule. Late last year it was announced that MADtv was ending and now, B&C is reporting that Talkshow with Spike Feresten won’t be back next season either.

Talkshow with Spike Feresten debuted on September 16, 2006 and stars Feresten, a former writer of shows like Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons. The program is filled with recurring sketches and light-hearted talks with various celebrities.

The network had given a test run of hour-long versions of Feresten’s show at 11pm in January and February of this year but apparently that wasn’t much of a success.

In March, FOX announced plans to fill the 11pm timeslot and replace long-running MADtv with a new talk show starring comedian Wanda Sykes. The as-yet-untitled Sykes show will air at 11pm and include Sykes’ commentary on hot-button topics, panel discussions with recurring personalities and additional segments shot outside the studio.

It’s unknown what the network intends to do with the midnight-12:30am slot but it won’t be filled with Feresten’s show. Feresten’s series finale is expected to air on May 16th. Previously announced guests are Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.

It’s unknown if the show has already been recorded or if the host will have an opportunity to end the series.

    This Show was very un-aprecated evar since it started in 05. And now FOX is just going to fill that old spot with some re-peats of Animation Domonation. Is FOX expecting that Animation Re-Runs will score better rating than this would. If That’s the case than this is rely sad. Черт руководство сеть Fox
