‘Nikki & Sara Live’ Cancelled by MTV

'Nikki & Sara Live' Cancelled MTV

MTV has pulled the plug on latenight talkshow “Nikki & Sara Live” after two seasons, Variety has confirmed.

Announcement was first made on Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer’s podcast “You Had To Be There.”

“To clarify we were not cancelled,” Schaefer said in the podcast. “We weren’t picked up. Cancelled implies at midseason they axed you because you were failing. We were not failing. I want to be very clear. Our ratings were up from season one. Our ratings were comparable, if not better, than every other cable, late night show. I’m very proud of the show that we did. I’m very grateful that we got to do it. But MTV decided it just wasn’t part of their programming future.”

“Nikki & Sara Live” debuted on MTV in January and wrapped its second season at the end of October. It aired Tuesday nights at 11 p.m.

    Only show on MTV worth watching. Two amazingly talented comedians. Why was this show axed?

  3. David says:

    I loved the show and hope the powers to be, come to their senses…

  4. Johnny Lobster says:

    Your show was cancelled because it WASN’T funny. You’re both just in denial- that and you’re both terrifically ugly. Do something useful with your lives become a temp or something more suited to your abilities.

    Nooooo! Nikki & Sara, I just discovered your show the other week, and was struck by how good it was! Clever writing, and just plain old good broadcasting chops. Although MTV was definitely very appropriate, I could see you guys on IFC, Sundance, or E! Maybe AMC (leading or following “Watch What Happens Live”?), maybe Current, even OWN! I refuse to accept that this is the end…

    This headline reads “cancelled.” Every other story about it reads “cancelled.” Schaffer’s statement includes “implies,” which in itself would mean one can say they were cancelled. Her whole statement is pretensious and bitter.
