The Jack and Triumph Show will not be returning to Adult Swim. The series was quietly cancelled by the network after it aired its seventh episode back in April. Initially, a 20 episode straight to series order was given to the series, but only seven episodes of the series aired. The series starred Triumph and Jack McBrayer.
Robert Smigel, the man behind Triumph the Comic Insult Dog, brought the series to Adult Swim in February, and he realized it was an “experiment” for the network. He spoke about the series before its release.
Deadline shared his comments back in January.
“We knew we’d make lots of mistakes. I think there’s going to be a learning curve for the audience too, not just us… You kind of have to go with it and discover what we’re doing as we do it, and hopefully enjoy the spontaneity that we’re slipping in there.”
On the series, Triumph would visit a new location during each episode and mock the celebrity world. It appears that Adult Swim only needed seven episodes to see that it wasn’t working.
