Sarah Silverman's US TV show axed

Hulu cancels I Love You, America

Sarah Silverman’s US TV show I Love You, America has been axed.

The Hulu on-demand service pulled the plug on the show – in which the comic aimed to bridge the political divide – after two series.

Silverman announced the news on Twitter, saying: ‘Well, Hulu cancelled "I Love You, America" and we’re all pretty damn heartbroken. … So in traditional twitter funeral style, I’ll be RTing the love.’

Among those who spoke up for the show was former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully, who posted: ‘A rare short-sighted decision by a TV network, especially with a new presidential campaign approaching and the country undergoing massive change. The show would have only kept growing. Hope it finds a new home.’

Trade papers in the US report that the comedian and production company Funny Or Die are hoping to sell the show to another broadcaster.

A total of 21 episodes were made, and the show earned an Emmy nomination last year.
