Ouch! Kathy Griffin's Talk Show Axed By Bravo
Kathy Griffin's talk show, Kathy, has been axed by Bravo and wont be returning for a third season.
Kathy Griffin's talk show, Kathy, has been cancelled by Bravo, effective at the end of the current season. The comedienne announced that her show wont be given a third series during her stand-up performance at Cincinnati's Taft Theatre over the weekend, news that was greeted by a barrage of boo's by the disgruntled audience, as reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Griffin addressed the issue to her stunned audience who clearly weren't happy at the news, before she eventually confirmed her statement again after the show in a tweet to Perez Hilton that read "Sad but tru." During the show, the comic managed to switch her axing around for comic effect, saying that the cancelation of her show only confirms the thoughts of those "predicting the demise of Bravo."
Kathy Griffin's show wont return for a third season
Kathy first hit the airwaves in April 2012, airing at 10 p.m. every Thursday throughout the run of the first season. The second season premiered January 10 the year, eventually being moved to the later time slot of 11:30 p.m. at the end of February. The final episode of the chat show went to air on March 28 averaging a paltry 500,000 viewers, a figure that reflects the equally unimpressive run the show had over it's 24 episode run. Griffin previously starred in Bravo's hit reality series My Life on the D-List for six seasons and despite the axing of her show from the network, she will still have a presence across the channel, who will continue to air her comedy specials. She is set to film her next special in the coming weeks, with it set to air in the Summer.
