Comedy Central’s sex-and-relationships series Not Safe With Nikki Glaser has been canceled, Deadline reports. The series, which ran for 20 episodes in its first and only season, is the latest victim in what feels like a moment of soul and image searching at Viacom’s comedy giant (see also: The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore). While never a giant hit, the show was a low-key charmer that inspired enough confidence at Comedy Central for a double order of its initial ten-episode run. This also means that the number of women hosts in late night drops again from three to … two? For her part, Glaser — a stand-up comic and regular on Inside Amy Schumer and @midnight — is apparently in talks to develop further ideas at the network, and has a half-hour special in development. So, no hard feelings, it seems.
