FXX has canceled Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell. Vulture has confirmed with the network the news that was first reported by Defamer. Currently in its second season, the show recently made a move from FX to its new sister channel FXX and from one episode a week to four. As Deadline reported a few weeks ago, since the move to a network that is carried in 26 million fewer homes, Totally Biased's numbers have significantly declined. A given Monday night episode came in around 12,000 total viewers and 4,000 for viewers ages 18 to 49 (for comparison, the second lowest 18 to 49 late night show on that night, The Pete Holmes Show, averaged 245,000). The show would do better on Wednesdays, when it was following new episodes of original series Always Sunny and The League, but the audience was still less than a third of what the show did in its first season. For fans, the show offered something unique from other late-night shows, but that proved not to be enough. R.I.P., Totally Biased.
