Netflix has canceled its chat programs The Break with Michelle Wolf and The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale after their first seasons.

Deadline.com blamed low viewership for why the streaming service opted not to renew the series for second seasons.

Wolf is an alum of The Daily Show and served as the host of this year's White House Correspondents Association Dinner, which U.S. President Donald Trump did not attend.

The Hollywood Reporter noted Netflix has been experimenting with what topical formats work for its subscribers.

Netflix canceled an interview show starring Chelsea Handler last year after two seasons, but has recently ordered programs led by Hasan Minhaj, David Letterman and Norm Macdonald.
