Netflix cancels 'The Break with Michelle Wolf'

Remember how Michelle Wolf had her own show on Netflix, titled "The Break With Michelle Wolf", that premiered nearly immediately after the Correspondents Dinner? Then, months later on her now-canceled Netflix show, Wolf compared Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Islamic terrorist group known as ISIS.

Wolf, who previously worked with "Late Night with Seth Meyers" and "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah", caught a flurry of media attention when she attacked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during her performance at the White House Correspondents Dinner earlier this year. McHale rose to prominence as the host of E!'s reality TV satire program The Soup and starring in NBC's cult comedy series Community, both which ended in 2015. The Break's first trailer came out in April before the show debuted in May and right after Wolf's provocative and controversial gig hosting The White House Correspondents Dinner. The network recently ordered six more episodes, which were released all at once in mid-July, which makes news of a cancellation somewhat surprising.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Netflix also canceled Joel McHale's talk show The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, which premiered in February.

Netflix past year canceled its first foray into the genre, Chelsea Handler's celebrity talk show, following its second season. Patriot Act with Wolf's fellow Daily Show contributor Hasan Minhaj, Norm Macdonald has a Show, and The Fix, a comedy panel show helmed by Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan, and D.L. Hughley are all slated to premiere.
