“The Jeff Dunham Show” Cancelled

Comedy Central has pulled the plug on The Jeff Dunham Show after just one season.

The sketch comedy starring the nation’s premier ventriloquist will not be returning next season despite its debut as the most-watched series premiere in the cable network’s history, drawing 5.3 million viewers, The Hollywood Reporter learned on Tuesday.

‘We have no plans to renew the series at this time,” a Comedy Central spokesperson said.

The network will continue to work with Dunham — the ventriloquist who is one of the highest-grossing standups in the country — as part of a development deal. He will star in another special for the network targeted for fall 2010, following his blockbuster 2008 special seen by 6.6 million viewers.
