Buzzer sounds on ‘Norm Macdonald,’ ‘SportsDome’

Comedy Central cancels series after rookie seasons

Comedy Central has declined to renew “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald” and “Onion SportsDome” for a second season.

Featuring the former “Saturday Night Live” performer, “Sports Show” reached just below a million overall viewers in its most recent airing (June 7), after pulling in 1.0 million viewers for its Apr. 12 premiere.

“Onion SportsDome,” which ran from January through March, was in a similar ratings neighborhood.

Last week, Comedy Central premiered “Jon Benjamin Has a Van” in the “Sports Show” timeslot and drew 1.2 million viewers.

Macdonald exec produced “Sports Show” with Mike Gibbons, Marc Gurvitz, Lori Jo Hoekstra and Daniel Kellison.
