Bravo is pulling the plug on comedian Kathy Griffin’s low-rated talk show.
Kathy gave the reality show fan and irrepressible liberal a rare chance for a female comic to shine in the late night arena. The chat show, which debuted last spring, limped into its second season despite poor ratings, and now Bravo has had enough.
All is not lost for Griffin, best known in some circles for simulating oral sex during a CNN New Year’s Eve broadcast. She recently taped a possible pilot with Anderson Cooper, the target of her faux oral fixation, for the most trusted name in news–CNN.
Both Griffin and Cooper appear to be in demand despite a track record of low ratings. Cooper’s name has been discussed as a possible replacement for Matt Lauer on Today.
