Los Angeles, California ( — Fans of Comedy Central’s “The Jeff Dunham Show” will be disappointed to learn that their favorite funny man will not be coming back for a second season.

The network announced Tuesday that they have not renewed the show to come back for an additional season of the show, which features comedian Jeff Dunham and his cast of sarcastic puppets.

Having an audience that is as diverse as the people that both love and hate the show, its debut still brought in some 5.3 million viewers, a season premiere record for Comedy Central.

Unfortunately, most of the show’s reviews were less than stellar, and ratings fell regularly during the season.

According to the Associated Press, “Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albani says the network will continue “to be in business with Jeff in a big way,” including a live tour, standup special, DVDs and consumer-products partnership.”

The network signed a multi-pronged deal with Dunham in March. - Press Release Distribution Service
