Why was Busy Tonight cancelled? Recently, host Busy Phillips spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about why E! cancelled her TV show.
Hosted by Busy Philipps, the late night talk show featured celebrity interviews, comedy bits, and pop culture news. Guests included Tina Fey, Kim Kardashian, Colin Hanks, Michelle Williams, and Rita Wilson.
Even though E! cancelled Busy Tonight back in May, Phillips thinks there’s still a chance for a series revival:
I really believed and still believe in my show, in Busy Tonight. And I know that we were incredibly creative and culturally successful, even though we were cancelled. Many cancelled shows are those things. I am just trying to right now figure out the best way to move it forward.”
And why did E! cancel Busy Tonight? Phillips says she wished she had more information:
I wish I would’ve known that I only had basically six weeks to get the ratings to where they had wanted them. I didn’t know. I wished I had had more information from the network in terms of what they needed and were looking for in terms of milestones and ratings and things.”
What do you think? Were you a fan of Busy Tonight? Would you watch a revival?
