The Half Hour News Hour Has Been Canceled

The Half Hour News Hour, a conservative news satire show which has aired Sundays on the Fox News Channel since February, will not be renewed after its current run of fifteen episodes, FNC’s senior vice president of programming announced yesterday.

I think this decision by Fox News is rather disappointing. The show did considerably well in its time slot, and it garnered favorable attention by conservatives. Sure, the humor was hit-or-miss some of the time, but I really think the program just needed more time to establish itself.

I realize that putting a comedy show on a serious news network was a bit of a risk, but I wish that Fox News had given the series more time to develop and mature.
