Oh no! Despite scoring the highest-ever ratings for a Comedy Central premiere with some of ventriloquism’s worst-ever jokes, The Jeff Dunham Show will not return for a second season, reports the Live Feed. Says a proud Comedy Central spokesman: “We have no plans to renew the series at this time.” James Hibberd’s sources indicate the decision came down to the show’s high production costs (puppets are expensive, man) and “to some degree, critical reception.” So a little gratitude is certainly owed to the Dunham-hating folks at Videogum this morning. Thanks, guys!
