Comedy Central has canned former radio host Gareth Cliff’s television show, the “Gareth Cliff Show”, a month and a half after it was launched on the channel, according to the Channel24 website on Wednesday.
The show, an Internet radio programme shown on TV, reportedly failed to attract enough viewers wanting to listen and watch Cliff on the DStv pay-TV platform.
Channel24 reported that the programme’s final show would take place on Monday, with 42 episodes having been broadcast.
The show was originally launched in May and originally ran from 7.35am.
At the beginning of June, the show was moved to 6am to boost viewership figures.
Following a media enquiry, Comedy Central said it was a “mutual decision” to end the show’s run on the channel.
Comedy Central said it would still be working with Cliff on other projects. — Sapa
