Brief: Comedy Central cancels “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald” and “Onion SportsDome”

Comedy Central has canceled frosh shows Sports Show with Norm Macdonald and Onion SportsDome. Neither show were huge hits for the network, but many considered Macdonald’s show a lock for a second season.

Sports Show debuted to 1.0 million viewers, but started sliding each following week. Macdonald hasn’t had much success since Saturday Night Live and critics thought that his move back behind the desk (like he did for “Weekend Update”) would translate to a success. However, no one tuned in.

Onion SportsDome, from The Onion, was a parody sports news show, based off of SportsCenter and debuted to 1.5 million viewers. However, the audience stick with the series and will not return for a second season.
