Netflix Fires Michelle Wolf After She Fails to Attract Enough Viewers

‘The Break With Michelle Wolf’ & ‘The Joel McHale Show’ Canceled By Netflix

Netflix Cancels Michelle Wolf’s Talk Show After Less Than Three Months

Comedian Michelle Wolf's Netflix talk show,"The Break With Michelle Wolf", will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season.

Michelle Wolf took aim at Ivanka Trump on her Netflix show in July. But her popularity skyrocketed after her controversial performance as the host of the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner in April.

The Break's 10-episode season premiered in May and aired over 10 weeks, with a finale on July 29.

Prior to her show, Wolf had worked for four years as a writer-contributor on "The Daily Show" and writer on "Late Night With Seth Meyers".

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Netflix also canceled Joel McHale's talk show The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, which premiered in February. While it's not immediately clear why the shows won't be returning, it's likely the company decided the two series weren't generating enough viewership (or buzz) to merit the added expenditure.

The network has Jerry Seinfeld's popular Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which it lured away from Crackle, and My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with late-night icon David Letterman. It remains to be seen whether the cancellations represent a retreat from the variety-talk format that the streaming service has been making an aggressive push into.

'I like Sarah, I think she's really resourceful. Is it Sarah Sanders, is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it Cousin Huckabee, is it Aunt Huckabee Sanders?' Wolf said, continuing, 'What's Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women? Women, if you need an abortion, get one. Unless you have Michael Cohen wire me $130,000, ' said Wolf, referencing the Stormy Daniels controversy.
