Michelle Wolf's Netflix Show Canceled 3 Months After Its Premiere


Netflix has nixed comedian Michelle Wolf's talk show just three months after the first season began.

The show, "The Break With Michelle Wolf," aired on Netflix weekly for 10 weeks over the summer, featuring a mix of her biting brand of stand-up, behind-the-news-desk commentary and skits parodying everything from Immigration and Customs Enforcement to true crime documentaries.

Netflix canceled Wolf's show along with a talk show centered on another popular comedian, "The Joel McHale Show."

With writing and contributing credits on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" and "The Daily Show With Trevor Noah," Wolf was already a force in the comedy world. But her popularity skyrocketed after her controversial performance as the host of the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in April.

During the black-tie event, Wolf scorched the Trump administration with jokes on porn stars, nondisclosure agreements and White House lies.

Many, including President Donald Trump, found the roast too vulgar, and the White House Correspondents' Association later denounced Wolf's monologue. But Wolf defended her performance, telling NPR's "Fresh Air" that she was "glad I stuck to my guns."

"I don't know, maybe I'm projecting this, but I think sometimes they look at a woman and they think, 'Oh, she'll be nice,' and if you've seen any of my comedy, you know that I don't ― I'm not," Wolf said.

Netflix canceled Wolf's show as it bulks up its lineup of comedian-centered talk shows, including "Daily Show" alum Hasan Minhaj's "Patriot Act," "Norm Macdonald Has a Talk Show" and "The Fix" with comedians Jimmy Carr, D.L. Hughley and Katherine Ryan.

U.S. President Donald Trump pressed fellow Republicans in Congress on Thursday to "get tough" and push to fund his proposed border wall in the current spending bill, raising the specter of a government shutdown when funding lapses later this month. In a post on Twitter, Trump called the bill "ridiculous" for not including funds for a planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and blamed Democrats for blocking it in the plan passed by the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday. The Senate-approved massive spending package included a provision to fund the federal government through Dec. 7 in an effort to avoid a government shutdown when funding ends Sept. 30.
