Comedy Central Cancels Series Deadline
Comedy Central has confirmed that it is pulling the plug on a series. Deadline.com reports that the cable channel said it will not order additional episodes of "The Jeselnik Offensive," which ran for two seasons.
Season two ended its run during the past summer.
"Series star/co-creator, comedian Anthony Jeselnik, announced the cancellation while performing at the New York Comedy Festival over the weekend, reportedly leading the crowd into a 'F*ck you Comedy Central' chant," the story reports.
"Jeselnik was a regular on Comedy Central’s roasts before landing his own series on the network," Deadline adds. "'The Jeselnik Offensive' featured Jeselnik’s take on news ripped from the headlines of Gawker, Reddit and the places we troll for the darker, more shocking and lurid stories."
