According to Kathy Griffin herself on Friday during a stand up comedy routine in Cincinnati, Ohio, the television network Bravo has cancelled her nighttime talk showKathy.
During recent Bravo Upfronts, Griffin’s show was not presented to news media. Thereafter, on
Griffin confirmed the same, not on TV, but in a live performance in Cincinnati.
Griffin has been a Bravo staple since her breakthrough reality series Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List debuted on the cable network in 2005 and ran for six seasons.
Kathy's second season debuted in January, although it was bumped from its primetime 10 p.m. slot in February. Reps for Griffin and Bravo did not immediately return requests for comment.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton said of the news, “Although the ratings were never super high, the comedienne's series managed to beat the odds and come back for a second year in January, and we had hoped that a similar scenario would pan out that way again!”
Bravo issued no news statement about her cancellation at the time. Bravo’s late night hit has not been Griffin, but test pilot Fashion Queens, which got a series commitment this week.
Last month it was reported that Griffin had shot a test pilot for CNN with friend (and fellow talk-show cancellee) Anderson Cooper.
