The ax finally fell on a comedy series that managed to last two seasons on Showtime despite being the pay cable channel’s lowest-rated series in 2016.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Showtime pulled the plug on “Dice,” the semi-autobiographical Andrew Dice Clay series. Created by Scot Armstrong, the program wrapped its seven-episode second season back in October.
“The comedy’s six-episode freshman season was Showtime’s lowest-rated series in 2016, averaging 191,000 total viewers after having the entire season released in advance on SVOD platforms,” THR reports. “Season two was down considerably from its rookie run, averaging 146,000 total viewers.”
The series, from Fox 21 Television Studios, tracked the comedian’s efforts to revive his career working in Las Vegas.
