Not Safe With Nikki Glaser Cancelled Comedy Central

Not Safe With Nikki Glaser Cancelled After One Season by Comedy Central

Nikki Glaser’s Comedy Central show is not safe from the cancellation axe.

The network has cancelled Not Safe With Nikki Glaser after one season, according to our sister site Deadline. Glaser confirmed the news while backstage on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show Chelsea, where she was a guest on Friday.

Not Safe was a bawdy, adults-only talk show that covered all aspects of sex, from dating horror stories to hookup apps, with guests and comedians joining Glaser to make jokes and discuss their own romantic histories. Premiering in February, the show actually saw its first season extended from ten episodes to 20, which was a good sign. But ratings apparently weren’t strong enough to earn a second-season renewal. (Average viewership for Season 1 episodes hovered around a half-million viewers.)

Comedy Central is reportedly trying to stay in business with Glaser, though. She’s a successful comedian, with a number of stand-up specials, appearances on @Midnight and guest spots on Inside Amy Schumer. She also co-created and starred in MTV’s Nikki & Sara Live, which lasted two seasons.

    That’s not good. I loved her show. I swear that I had read that it was getting a second season.

  2. Michael says:

    This was their best new show in quite awhile, I loved it and never missed a show, should have been renewed.

  3. patrick says:

    Found it late in the season, loved what I did get to see. Bummed it’s not coming back

  4. Fido says:

    Loved the bit where they fed pornstars their lines. :)

  5. HAP says:

    I found her to be unusually quiet on Chelsea. Now I know why.

  6. Rex the Wonder Dog says:

    In retrospect it’s probably not a good idea to name your show “Not Safe”

  7. Sterling Archer says:

    How’s that “appeal to the millennial audience” working for ya?

  8. Anon says:

    I see sex is still not a comfortable subject to talk about but people are totally fine with the violence on TV.

  9. Tim Church says:

    It is unspeakably beyond ironic that she made the announcement while with Chelsea Handler!! Add “This Is Not Happening” (what network execs said when it was given a time-slot), & these are the “Tic-Tac-Toe” of shows that never should have happened. (But they need more shows, so they can put “@ midnight” back in its title time-slot.)

    Only men can do bawdy talk shows. Women try too hard to be funny.

    • tjchurch2001 says:

      Simply MUST disagree… Samantha Bee has ALWAYS been funny, which is why she (or Olivia Munn, or 50 other people NOT named Trevor) should have been given “The Daily Show”.

      • Beaker says:

        Samantha Bee barely reaches a 0.3 share, which indicates most of Americans don’t think she’s talented. You only say they’re funny because they’re women. Networks struggle with viewership because prioritize inclusiveness over talent.

        • Tim Church says:

          The “share” only shows how many watch it, not how many of the viewers appreciate it, nor the opinions of any viewers.

          On top of that, your last sentence states “(someone) prioritize(s) something off-topic over talent”.

          These two things together prove you to have less intellect than the animated character you derive your commenting name from.

          • Beaker says:

            You don’t need intellect to understand appreciation and opinions don’t make money. If you have talent, you attract viewers. If you attract viewers, sponsors pay. If sponsors pay, everyone is happy. Picking a women, assuming she’s funny and describing her as not safe don’t work.

          • Tim Church says:

            Nor does using more than one verb/thing in a sentence & then saying all of them together “don’t work”… Then again, neither does assuming that “If sponsors pay, everyone is happy”; Using a phrase such as “picking a women”; Or doing any/all of these things & acting as though you are qualified to describe what does or does not require/take intellect.

          • Beaker says:

            Apparently you’ve never heard of a gerund phrase. You should learn basic English grammar before criticizing.

          • Tim Church says:

            Gerund phrases are not basic grammar, which is proven due to your prior comments proving you lack basic knowledge of grammar & innumerable other things.

          • Beaker says:

            I’ve have proven you’re absurdly simpleminded and illogical.

          • Tim Church says:

            You have proven nothing resembling those statements regarding me, & simultaneously proven at least one of them exactly regarding yourself.

            Ironically, that may truly help you, as the “simpleminded” factor would serve to assist in explanation of your lack of comprehension.
