The Low Down Tough Break: Michelle Wolf and Joel McHale Lose Netflix Shows Published 6 months ago on Sep 3, 2018 By Will Gardner Joel McHale Might Be Better On Network TV After less than a year on Netflix, The Break With Michelle Wolf and The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale have been canceled. The Joel McHale Show looked to carry over success from McHale’s E! show, The Soup. However, the Community star’s brand of entertainment commentary fused with dead-pan delivery didn’t seem to deliver. Netflix According to several sources, the show didn’t garner enough of a following to warrant a second season. Wolf Just Didn’t Pan Out On the other hand, the cancellation of The Break comes as a huge shock. Wolf’s popularity surged following her poignant, yet controversial, hosting of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in April. Reuters Pictures The show, lauded as a “sharp, hard-hitting style of comedy,” was often compared to Late Night with Seth Meyers. Despite this, many believe the talk show failed to capitalize on Wolf’s newfound stardom. It simply faltered under pressure to match previous success. Netflix Seems To Be Missing The Mark Netflix, heralded as the king of streaming media, does not release viewership information so any speculation into the shows’ popularity is merely that. But that isn’t stopping the provider from rolling out more shows. Comedian and former Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj is slated to star in his own unscripted talk show this fall. The Daily Show on Twitter Nevertheless, the recent trend of canceling its scheduled release shows is troubling. It suggests the media giant has yet to create a winning formula. Last year, Netflix canceled Chelsea Handler’s self-titled show after two seasons. The Break made it just 10 weeks before its July 29th finale. Meanwhile, The Joel McHale Show managed a 13-week season before the network ordered a six-episode dump on July 15th. While Wolf’s future with Netflix is up in the air, McHale will continue to appear on the company’s original show, Santa Clarita Diet. The horror-comedy was renewed for a third season earlier this year. UP NEXT Here’s What Chris Hemsworth Thinks About ‘Thor: The D...
