Why did Comedy Central cancel The Jeff Dunham Show?

Jeff DunhamYou don't usually see the #1 cable debut get canceled in its first season, but that's what has happened to The Jeff Dunham Show.

Comedy Central says that they have decided not to renew the comedy show featuring puppets. The comic will, however, still have a new comedy special on the network sometime next year.

Now, obviously, there are other things going on here that we as viewers will probably never be privy to. But still, when you have a new weekly show (as well as a couple of specials) that do so well in the ratings (even if the audience did drop a bit later in the season), it's odd that you cancel it. I'd love to hear what really happened.

Comedy Central's Jeff Dunham Show is a smash

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 25th 2009 5:04PM
Jeff_dunham_dummiesIn the original version of this post, I wrote about the big success of Jeff Dunham on Comedy Central -- last Thursday night, his new show The Jeff Dunham Show drew 5.3 million viewers, the highest ever premiere for a show on that network. However, I mistakenly thought the show aired Friday and compared the ratings to shows on other networks that night. I sincerely apologize if that confused readers. Here's the story as it should have been written in the first place.

Jeff Dunham's success was surprising and quite a feat. As my mother might say, "Go figure." The Jeff Dunham Show.

And the number of viewers got even better later that night when a repeat of the show aired -- 7.9 million viewers.

When talking to dummies doesn't involve pitching something to NBC executives

Right now, Comedy Central's new Jeff Dunham Show is buzzing in the background and I can't get the voices out of my head. Now I know what it's like to be a ventriloquist and a meth addict.

No disrespect to Dunham and company, but there was a time when throwing your voice was impressive enough to get on television. Check out the late Señor Wences chatting it up with his friends Johnny and Pedro on the original Muppet Show. It's alright.
