TV Land has dropped The Jim Gaffigan Show after its second run

Viacom-owned US cablenet TV Land has cancelled sitcom The Jim Gaffigan Show after two seasons.

The single-camera series finished its second season on Sunday. However, the comedy failed to bring in strong ratings and had been averaging fewer than 500,000 same-day viewers.

The Jim Gaffigan Show was created by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan (Rescue Me), who executive produces with Sony TV, Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray and Sandy Wernick, as well as Michael Wimer of Fedora Entertainment. Endemol Shine Distribution holds the rights.

In a statement, TV Land said: “After two great seasons, we have mutually agreed to not move forward with season three of the series.

“We have an incredible amount of respect for everyone involved and are grateful to them for bringing their passion and dedication to The Jim Gaffigan Show.”
