Comedy Central cancels ‘Show’

Cabler to air remaining three segs over next few weeks

The Juggy girls will bounce no more.

After six seasons, Comedy Central has decided against producing new episodes of beers-and-babes skein “The Man Show.” Cabler will air the remaining three segs over the next few weeks. Show airs Sundays at 10 p.m.

Program launched in 1999 to 2.5 million viewers and, in its heyday, was one of the laffer net’s top-rated programs.

But the franchise was forced to undergo a makeover after its fourth season with the exit of original hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla (Daily Variety, Feb. 6, 2003). Exec producer Daniel Kellison also vacated the series to join Kimmel and Corolla on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Joe Rogan (“Fear Factor”) and standup comedian Doug Stanhope stepped in to host, kicking off the fifth season to a healthy start with 1.7 million viewers (up 16% from the fourth-season premiere).

But ratings dwindled thereafter. Most recent fresh episode on Sunday drew just 618,000 viewers.

Mark L. Keizer (“Dog Eat Dog”) and Tom Gianas (“Saturday Night Live”) served as showrunners-co-exec producers for the last two seasons. Stone Stanley Entertainment’s Scott Stone and David Stanley exec produced.
