“The Wanda Sykes Show” axed?

By Greg Hernandez

Deadline Hollywood’s Nellie Andreeva is reporting that The Wanda Sykes Show is being canceled by Fox after just one season!

Writes Nellie: The late-night talk show started off strong but tumbled in the ratings as the season went on and fell below the performance of predecessor MadTV in the Saturday 11 PM hour. Fox has options for the late-night Saturday slot. It has been actively developing sketch comedies this pilot season and ordered two pilots, one written by and starring Dana Carvey and Spike Feresten, with another, from Jamie Foxx and MadTV creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small.

I’d be more outraged if I’d watched it more than just a few times. It’s hard to change your Saturday night viewing habits and if I’ve been out and about, I like to come home and watch SNL. I just don’t think Wanda’s show created enough buzz-worthy moments.
