Kathy Griffin broke some surprising news during her concert in Cincinnati on Friday — her late night talk show Kathy has been canceled by Bravo.
During her stand-up show, the comedian revealed that the show hasn’t been renewed by the cable network, reports website Cincinnati.com. According to the reviewer, “the crowd booed when they heard, but Griffin made light of it, predicting the demise of Bravo.”
The show, despite attracting some high-profile guests such as Jane Fonda, Josh Groban and Anderson Cooper, has struggled in the ratings and in February was moved out of its primetime slot at 10 p.m. on Thursdays to 11:30 p.m.
While there’s no official confirmation from Bravo just yet, it’s unlikely the always-unbridled comic would bite the hand of the network that has largely been responsible for her career resurgence. Griffin won two Emmys and loyal legions of fans for her previous Bravo series, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List.
Of course, we’re not shedding any tears for Kathy. Griffin will continue to be an advocate for the LGBT community. In May she will host the L.A. Gay& Lesbian Center’s benefit An Evening with Women. The cancellation is certain to provide more rich comedy fodder.
