“China, IL”, “The Comedians”, and “HAPPYish” All Got the Ax This Week

We’re pretty sure this isn’t how the rule of three in comedy is supposed to go.

Adult Swim, FX, and Showtime all cancelled comedies on their networks this week. As the next pilot season is rolling around, this is the first wave of cancellations. We can only hope won’t be as bloody as the last round of cancellations where many freshman shows got axed

China, IL made it to third season at Adult Swim, but The Comedians, and HAPPYish only made it to the end of their first season at FX and Showtime, respectively.

Perhaps, it won’t be before too long before we see what’s next for Brad Neely, Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, and Steve Coogan.
