After three seasons on Comedy Central, the network has cancelled The Sarah Silverman Program.

 

Comedy Central moved Silverman’s show from its primetime slot to midnight partway through its third season, which wrapped up in April.

 

The show stars Silverman, who plays a fictional version of herself. It follows the comedian’s adventures with her friends and real-life sister, Laura Silverman.

 

The Sarah Silverman Program co-stars Brian Posehn, Steve Agee and Jay Johnston. Throughout its three-year run, the show featured guest appearances by a number of well-known comedians, including Andy Samberg and Zach Galifianakis.

 

Recently, a strong Twitter campaign tried to save the show from being axed, but it wasn’t enough.

 

Silverman was nominated for a Lead Actress Emmy for her role in the series. She’s currently promoting her new memoir The Bedwetter.
