Comedy Central Cancels Jeff Dunham

Apparently a bunch of puppets can't carry a half-hour show -- and neither can Jeff Dunham.

The New York Times says that Comedy Central has pulled The Jeff Dunham Show, citing low ratings. It's bizarre, considering the network was boasting about the comedian's debut, which drew in 5.3 million viewers. Unfortunately, that number dropped 55 percent by the second episode. At the close of the season, the show was averaging under 2 million viewers.

When asked about the status of the show, a Comedy Central spokesperson said, "We have no plans to renew the series at this time."

The network still plans to air Dunham's comedy, with a stand-up special slated for fall 2010.
