Thomas Lennon announced on his Twitter account today that as of 1:30pm, Comedy Central’s Reno 911! is canceled. Its last new episode aired on July 8th and averaged 1.027 million viewers. That week it was Comedy Central’s tenth-most watched show, coming in behind four episodes of South Park, three episodes of The Daily Show, the movie Jackass Number Two, and even its own movie (from 2007) Reno 911! Miami.
It came in ahead of the recently renewed Tosh.0 which aired its 5th episode the week of Reno 911!’s last original episode aired and averaged 996,000 viewers. Less than Reno 911, but relatively speaking, the cost to make Tosh.0 compared to a show that would’ve been in its seventh season is ~$1.57.
Reno 911! had a good cable run – six years and 88 episodes.
