FX Cancels Billy Crystal’s ‘The Comedians’ After Only One Season




Billy Crystal and Josh Grad’s new series “The Comedians” was canceled by FX after only one year on the air.

Showrunner Ben Wexler announced the bad news on Twitter saying, “#TheComedians is cancelled at FX. I could not be more proud of the work we all did.”

The critics never liked the show and it had poor ratings.

The show had 13 episodes and Billy Crystal played a comedy legend who was reluctantly paired with Josh Gad, an edgier up-and-coming star, in an unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at a fictional late night sketch comedy show where egos and generations collide.

Larry Charles (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld), Matt Nix (Burn Notice), and Ben Wexler (Community, Arrested Development) were Writers and Executive Producers of The Comedians, along with Crystal. Charles directed the pilot. Josh Gad is serving as Producer. The half-hour, single-camera comedy was produced by Fox Television Studios.
