NEW YORK – Comedy Central won't be renewing "The Jeff Dunham Show" for a second season.
The show, featuring comedian Jeff Dunham and his repertoire of puppets, attracted plenty of attention, both positive and negative. Its debut drew 5.3 million viewers, a season premiere record for Comedy Central. But
Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albani says the network will continue "to be in business with Jeff in a big way," including a live tour, standup special, DVDs and consumer-products partnership.
Comedy Central signed a multi-platform deal with Dunham in March.
