The Weekly Late Night Mess:
Certainly the shocking end to their much promoted The Break with Michelle Wolf, has liberals up in arms some wondering is Netflix searching for a right wing talk show host? The internet channel claims Wolf didn’t bring the ratings, they had hoped. According to reports the cast, crew, and host learned of the cancellation, where else but twitter. Also ending is The Joel McHale Show, with Joel McHale. Netflix seems to favor the funny man over the controversial WHCD host. McHale is still employed by the network. The move has also received criticism from feminists which leaves Samantha Bee as the leading woman on the late night circuit.
This is shocking to me! Not that I watched the shows, or anything, but I thought Netflix really wanted to get into the late night biz. They are still going to attempt it with a few other shows next fall. Yet, they have literally every stand-up comedian on the planet. So why did this fail? It failed because of their weekly shows. They will probably stick to binging format now, as the weekly shows don’t really work online. When you can watch Wolf whenever you want even if it’s released weekly, the material gets old pretty quickly in the late night format, I guess.
