Garfunkel & Oates Cancelled

Here’s some news Garfunkel & Oates won’t be singing about: IFC has cancelled the comedy series after one season, our sister site Deadline reports.

The show centered around the personal and professional lives of female comedy-folk duo Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel) and Kate Micucci (Oates), who performed satirical — and sometimes dirty — songs.

    Snarky writer: “Here’s some news Garfunkel and Oates won’t be singing about…” (bleh)

    Betcha anything they will! Considering that everything else is fair game for a song, why wouldn’t they sing about this? …and like everything else that they do, it will be FANTASTIC!!

    G&O FTW!

      Ugh! Tvline took away the garbled comment that I was responding to!
      Oh well… that garbled comment made more sense than G&O getting cancelled…
