Remember Michelle Wolf, who mocked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders when Wolf emceed this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner in April? Remember when she dressed up in the colors of the American flag and performed a march celebrating abortion? Remember how Michelle Wolf had her own show on Netflix, titled “The Break With Michelle Wolf,” that premiered almost immediately after the Correspondents Dinner?
Now Wolf’s show has been canceled, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which wrote, “Despite plentiful buzz following her controversial turn as this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner emcee, Wolf’s late-night entry failed to garner the kind of viewership that warrants a second season at the streaming giant.”
Last February when Wolf’s upcoming show was announced, Wolf said, “You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV.” Netflix’s VP of Content Bela Bajaria added, “We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice.”
Prior to her show, Wolf had worked for four years as a writer-contributor on “The Daily Show” and writer on “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
Wolf recently garnered an Emmy nomination for her HBO comedy special titled “Nice Lady.”
