Nellie Andreeva, editor of Deadline.com’s TV is reporting that Fox has pulled the plug on “The Wanda Sykes Show”.
The late-night talk show started off strong but tumbled in the ratings as the season went on and fell below the performance of predecessor “MadTV” in the Saturday 11 p.m. hour.
Fox has options for the late-night Saturday slot. It has been actively developing sketch comedies this pilot season and ordered two pilots, one written by Jamie Foxx and “MadTV” creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small.
Fox, meanwhile, has yet to make an official announcement regarding the fate of Wanda Sykes.
