Sarah Silverman's show axed

Third series was the last

Sarah Silverman’s American TV series has been cancelled after three seasons.

Comedy Central has confirmed it will not be renewing the Sarah Silverman Program, which ended its third run last month.

However, the writing was apparently on the wall when the network shifted it from a primetime slot to midnight mid-series.

Last year, Silverman and her producers threatened to quit the show when Comedy Central slashed its budget from $1.1 million to $850,000 per episode. The dispute was resolved when Comedy Central’s gay-oriented cable network Logo stepped in to help finance production.

And last month co-star Brian Posehn Tweeted: ‘I feel like we’re lucky to have done what we’ve done, and I would be very happy to come back and do a season four. But I’d also be completely surprised if it happened.’
