Dane Cook’s sitcom got cancelled before it even aired

Dane Cook is essentially the Nickelback of comedy: Beloved by fratboys everywhere, but maligned by the rest of the web in general. So it probably shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear that NBC has cancelled his new sitcom, before a single episode even made its way to air. Via ONTD

A little over a year ago, we reported that comedian Dane Cook had inked a deal with NBC to star in his own sitcom. The wheels then turned and out came the show Next Caller, with Cook starring as a chauvinist shock jock who gets paired up with romance-loving, NPR female co-host. The show was slated for midseason. Now Deadline is reporting that NBC is pulling the plug on the entire project, with executives citing, after filming four episodes out of a six episode order, that “creatively the series was not going in the direction they had hoped for.” Collette Wolfe, Jeffrey Tambor, Joy Osmanski and Wolé Parks also starred.

Well, dusty dusty ashy ashy and such. We already have Go On to fill the “ornery man with a radio show is forced to interact with chill hippies” slot, so the only thing this show was good for was a joke about how Dane Cook has gone from ripping off Louis C.K. to ripping off Matthew Perry. And just like that, it’s no longer useful.
