Sad news for fans of The Chris Gethard Show. Recently, host Chris Gethard announced the truTV show has been cancelled and will not be returning for a fourth season.
The variety show, which features games, call-ins, celebrity guests, and live music, first debuted on New York public access TV in 2011 before moving to Fusion in 2015 and finally to truTV in 2017. Guests have included Jon Hamm, Lena Dunham, P. Diddy, John Mulaney, Jerrod Carmichael, and Wanda Sykes.
On social media, Gethard announced it was a mutual decision between him and truTV to end The Chris Gethard Show. See the full post and more reactions below:
Working on the @GethardShow changed my life. I quit the job I hated. I laughed so hard every week. I put bands on TV that would never have been on TV. I’m IN a band with @kirioliver and @Mikeyerg, and fellow music booker Zane played bass on our first record. I love all of you.

I went from a pharmaceutical warehouse hauling and packing crates in the middle of the ocean to manhandling Will Ferrell out of a studio in the basement of what used to be the first United Nations building in the span of 2 fucking years.
Long live @ChrisGethard

It’s not an exaggeration to say the @GethardShow changed my life. I’m so lucky I got to be a part of this weird, amazing family and help weird, amazing bands reach a bigger audience. Also became a comedy writer and performer, which I never would have had the guts to do otherwise. https://t.co/sa21EaoJUW
