It’s a tough break for comedy on Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service has cancelled both The Break with Michelle Wolf and The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale.
Both comedy series premiered earlier this year. The Break is hosted by former Daily Show correspondent Michelle Wolf and features sketches and satirical commentary related to entertainment and politics.
Meanwhile, The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale took a comedic look at news and pop culture in the vein of McHale’s cancelled E! TV show, The Soup.
It’s unclear why Netflix has axed both TV shows after only one season. Lack of viewership is likely the reason, but the streaming service does not release ratings.
What do you think? Have you seen The Break and/or The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale? Do you think Netflix should’ve renewed them?
