Netflix cancels comedian Michelle Wolf's show (Show aborted)
The Hill ^ | 8/17/2018 | JUSTIN WISE

Posted on 08/17/2018 10:05:45 PM PDT by Beave Meister

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

Deadline reported on Friday that Wolf's Netflix series had been canceled only about three months after its first episode aired. The show's last episode was released on July 29.

Wolf has not yet made a statement about her show's cancellation.

The "Daily Show" star gained widespread notoriety earlier this year after giving a speech during the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner in which she repeatedly slammed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful," Wolf said at the dinner. "But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like, maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies."

Makes me wonder how our tastes as a culture have gone so downhill that such unfunny hacks are given airtime at all!

Especially in light of classy, soulful, and gifted women like Aretha Franklin passing away...

Would be nice if we could be a society that celebrates genuine talent and greatness again.

This is why conservatives shouldn't boycott Netflix. Ironically, what hurts Netflix more than completely ending your subscription, is to not watch a particular show. I know it sounds strange, but Netflix has an aggregate where the show that has the least eyeballs get the axe.

It happened to Chelsea Handler, and it's happening to Michelle Wolf. Obola being on the board or whatever isn't going to change that. Because I ain't giving up my Netflix. Lots of excellent shows and original programming out there.

I was one who cancelled and typed in her name as a reason.

So now I can join again. :-)

Imagine the typical budget per weekly show like this one.
It takes a lot of money for lights, sound direction, studio rental, costumes, rehersals,script writers and editors, and of course advertisers have to be brought in to buy time.
At some point you would think someone involved would say
“I just don’t feel right, making jokes about aborted babies.”

I guess the money comes first, before any pretense of moralizing. I have never held such a lucrative production job, so I suppose one has to be in that position before you know how you will react.

Netflix has original movies, and they carry the full seasons of Walking Dead, I Zombie, and lots of other great Sci-Fi shows.

carried to its extreme, liberals are so open and tolerant, that they can’t make any moral or ethical judgements. So in this case, no, nobody would say it’s not right to make jokes about aborted babies, because that would violate the liberal law of being non-judgemental.

It is more ala carte than cable/satellite....

After what Prime did to Agatha Christie, I doubt if I shall ever be interested in the supposed wonderful “CONTENT” of what those people have to offer.

It was disgusting, and they didn’t have the decency to NOT use the name of Christie.

The Brits along with the entire so-called entertainment world is not very ….entertaining.
Getting all those shows from a different source was supposed to be better. WELL IT AIN’T.

Until the “content” improves to the point of being decent, no one will be interested for any loyalty to the shows.

JUST MY HUMBLE OPINION>

If you saw the show, at least two of the characters were gay and it is not the first time Ms Phelps (who does screenplay writing for Agatha’s stories), has on previous occasions indicated there were homosexual issues in the show. I have read Christie for years, and maybe I’m stupid, but I NEVER recognized that in her writings.
