Sad news for Jim Jefferies fans. The Jim Jefferies Show, which has undoubtedly played a part in helping make Jefferies a household name in addition to his specials on Netflix, will be concluding later this month.
“The Jim Jefferies Show will air its final episode on November 19, concluding a brilliant three-year run on Comedy Central,” said a spokesperson for Comedy Central in a statement, as reported by Deadline. “We thank Jim and the team for bringing us a unique and international approach to culture and politics. We look forward to developing more projects with Jim in the future.”
This move actually makes sense, given the announcement last month that Jefferies was working on a put-pilot for NBC, which you can read more about here. It is a bit surprising, however, seeing as how Jefferies entered into a first look deal with Comedy Central back in February of this year.
Jefferies has yet to comment on the show’s conclusion.
Remaining episodes of The Jim Jefferies Show will air Tuesdays at 10:30/9:30c.
