‘The Comedians’, TV Show Cancelled By FX After A Single Season.
The Billy Crystal and Josh Gad-starring comedy series recently wrapped up on the network after just one season.
Showrunner Ben Wexler revealed the news on Twitter, saying: “#TheComedians is canceled at FX. I could not be more proud of the work we all did.”
Despite its strong line-up, the series went from an 878,000-viewer opening to only 306,000 for its final episode in June.
Crystal played a veteran comic who is paired with a much younger writer (Gad) to run a sketch comedy series.
But their relationship gets off to a bad start because Crystal’s character objects to being paired with a less-experienced collaborator.
Matt Oberg, Stephnie Weir, Megan Ferguson and Dana Delany also starred in the series.
