Hi Bryan Here….

“Wait, What?”

That is probably what fans of the hilarious ‘Sports Show with Norm Macdonald’ said when they found out Comedy Central has cancelled the show.  This is bad move on their part.  ‘Sports Show’ was probably the funniest show Comedy Central had next to South Park.  Comedy Central said they would not be moving forward with a second season of the show.

The show was averaging in over 1.1 million viewers for its Tuesday late time slot.  That is actually good.  Macdonald said: “that he had not been “officially” informed of the bad news, noting, “A Minute with Stan Hooper is still officially on hiatus,” a reference to his short-lived 2003 Fox sitcom. He also said that he was open to hosting a similar-style program (“I like doing a funny show where I don’t have to act and fall in love with a girl”) and talked up “an Internet campaign to save the show, almost like they do with shows about witches and vampires and aliens from outer space…. Maybe I’ll call [the network] and ask them to bring it back. I’ll say, ‘Just bring it back. How much could it hurt television, really?’”

I hope another network picks him up.  This show was great.  Bad form Comedy Central.  Bad form.
