The Day the Laugh Track Died

Sad news folks. The Half Hour News Hour, Fox News Channel's answer to The Daily Show, has been shelved. Via TVNewser:
In a memo to senior producers this afternoon, FNC's SVP of programming, Bill Shine announced the network "will not continue the Half Hour News Hour beyond its current 15 episode run."

There is the possibility it could be resurrected but if the reviews of the show are any indication, chances are many would rather it just stay dead.

Moral of the story: Fox should stick to news. It's far funnier when they pretend to be fair and balanced.
