Comedy Central Cancels 'Sarah Silverman Program'

by Kim Potts, posted May 12th 2010 9:30AM
The first season of 'The Sarah Silverman Program' was hilarious. Ditto, for the most part, its over-the-top second season. But the third? Comedy Central had shifted the show from 10:30PM to midnight. And now, the series has been cancelled.

Deadline reports that the third season, which ended on April 15, will be the show's last, as the network has decided not to renew Silverman's comedy for a fourth season.

The decision shouldn't come as a major surprise to anyone, as season 3 almost didn't happen. Comedy Central had asked Silverman and company to cut the show's budget by more than 20 percent, and only after Comedy Central sister network Logo agreed to co-finance the series did 'Program' move forward.

Sarah Silverman Pees on a Mailbox (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 19th 2010 4:01AM
The Sarah Silverman ProgramWe're really glad we don't live in Sarah Silverman's neighborhood because, apparently, anything goes and it's usually TMI.

After seeing her dog pee on a mailbox, she decides that hey, why can't she pee on a mailbox, too? After all, the dog can pee anywhere, and she's the dog's boss.

We'll let you draw your own conclusions about what it must be like inside Silverman's mind. If it doesn't repulse you, watch 'The Sarah Silverman Program' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on COM).

New TV DVDs for Feb. 9: 'JAG,' 'Sarah Silverman' and More

by Scott Harris, posted Feb 9th 2010 12:00PM
Ah, Valentine's Day. Yes, this weekend is the perfect time for candies and flowers and snuggling up on the couch with that special someone to share in the romantic glow of your giant HDTV as you watch the flashing neon signs of the new 'Vega$' DVD.

Okay, so maybe romance is dead after all, because judging from this week's pre-Valentine releases, Hollywood isn't in a very loving mood. But while nothing says "be mine" like giving your significant other a complete set of 'JAG,' we thought we'd go ahead and present our Singles guide to the top DVD issues of the week. Because as long as you have 'Gary Unmarried' at your fingertips, you'll never be alone.

New TV on DVD Releases This Week

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 8th 2010 6:04PM
Stargate SGUHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

'Studio One' is one of those shows I wasn't sure they'd ever release on DVD. Sure, it's an important, classic shows, but I wondered if they'd bother releasing them and if some of the tapes were erased or in horrible condition. There was a big 'Studio One' set released last year, and this week we have 'Twelve Angry Men' and the Rod Serling dramas in separate sets. Really great stuff, and well worth getting if you're into TV history.

Or you could buy season one of 'Gary Unmarried.'

  • 'Army Wives' - Season 3
  • 'Fraggle Rock' - Wembley's Egg Surprise
  • 'Gary Unmarried' - Season 1
  • 'The Guild' - Season 3
  • 'JAG' - The Final Season

What to Watch: February 4

by Kim Potts, posted Feb 4th 2010 6:00AM
'The Sarah Silverman Program' (10:30PM, Comedy Central) season 3 premiere
She's back and naughtier than ever! This season will find Sarah meeting up with her imaginary childhood friend (guest star Andy Samberg), telling her pals, gay couple Brian and Steve, that they have hygiene issues, writing a children's book and taking on a Nazi war criminal played by Emmy winner Ed Asner. And tonight's premiere finds Sarah in one of her most outrageous situations ever, as she comes to believe that she was born with both male and female genitalia. How does she, um, handle, the situation? Let's just say it involves a moustache, a unibrow and the grossest necklace you've ever seen in primetime.

'Sarah Silverman' and 'Demetri Martin' Get Return Dates

by Scott Harris, posted Dec 28th 2009 11:23AM
Here's hoping Matt Damon has some space on his DVR, because it looks like he'll need it this February. No, not for the announcement of the Oscar nominations, but for something far more important: the return of Sarah Silverman.

Yes, according to TV Guide, Comedy Central has finally scheduled the third season premiere for 'The Sarah Silverman Program,' which will return to the airwaves on February 4 in the 10:30PM time slot. Silverman, who, of course, famously boasted of a (fictional) relationship with Damon on 'Jimmy Kimmel Show!,' has been off the air for well over a year while the network sorted out details of the show's return.

Sarah Silverman gets saved by 'gay TV channel'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 4th 2009 9:03AM
Once again, people, I'm forced to asked the question, what the hell is going on here? Has black become white? Has up replaced down? Has Rush Limbaugh been saying he wishes Barack Obama all the best, while Janeane Garofalo is caught trying to start a fire in the White House rose garden?

The makers of The Sarah Silverman Program have been in a standoff with Comedy Central over their latest budget negotiations. Thankfully, a deal was reached and the show will return for another season, but the deal was even bigger than the budget they called into question.

Well, no one ever said you had to be good at math to run a major network, or any of the other basic requirements for passing standardized testing, for that matter. Fred Silverman's parents, for instance, had to hire their boy a special tutor so he could pass finger painting.

Sarah Silverman threatens to quit her show

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2009 10:47AM
Sarah SilvermanLike AIG, The Sarah Silverman Program needs a bailout.

Comedy Central is cutting the budget for the comedy show by more than 20%, and the three executive producers - including Silverman herself - have threatened to quit the show. The series has not been picked up for a third season yet.

It's actually MTV Networks that is telling Comedy Central that they have to cut the budget. Right now each episode costs around $1.1 million to produce. MTV Network wants that cut down to $850,000 an episode. That's probably more than can be saved by simply replacing the fancy food on the craft services table with stuff from the supermarket.

I predict that they'll settle this, though I have to admit this is a show I don't really watch, even if I do think Silverman is funny. I wouldn't mind having a second new episode of Important Things with Demetri Martin every week if this show is a goner.

Comedy Central wants more Sarah Silverman

by Brett Love, posted Feb 13th 2007 3:41PM
Sarah SilvermanThe Sarah Silverman Program debuted with great numbers for Comedy Central last week. They are understandably pleased about that, but this announcement came as a bit of a surprise to me. The network has already picked up a second season, after just two airings of the show. That seems to be a bit of a gamble.

I watched the first two episodes, and they weren't bad. There were some genuinely funny moments in both of them. My favorite parts were the scenes with Zach Galifianakis, but I always like him.

In watching it though, I got the feeling that this could grow old rather quickly. Sure, it could be a break out hit. It's hard to predict what is going to catch on. And because it's so hard, giving it a little time to prove itself might have been a wise move. Nobody wants to be stuck with the last season of Drew Carey, long after fans have quit watching.

Sarah Silverman's act is starting to bug me

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 30th 2007 11:02AM
Sarah SilvermanNot too long ago, I was one of the legions of comedy nerds who thought that Sarah Silverman's act was one of the most brilliant out there in the world of stand-up. Think about it: "She's a pretty girl, but she says all of these offensive things. Look how cute she's being; she doesn't even know how bad she's being!" Etc. When her stand-up act started getting attention a couple of years ago, and especially after her Jesus Is Magic movie hit theaters, her approach to comedy seemed fresh and funny.

Now, two short years and a million articles -- fifty percent of which examined the unlikely relationship between her and Jimmy Kimmel -- later, I'm really starting to get sick of Silverman's act. Why? Because we know what it's going to be. "How offensive can she get? Ooh, let's see her look blankly at the audience and wonder why they're laughing so hard!" That's all there is, and I don't see it getting any deeper.
