W. Kamau Bell's late night talker on FXX to end
And just like that...W. Kamau Bell's late night talk show on FX spinoff, FXX, is over. The network has officially confirmed a report that first appeared in Deadspin a little while ago.
Too bad -- really. Host and show ("Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell") displayed promise during the initial run at FX, while Bell -- who attended the last couple of summer TV Critics' tours -- seemed like a genuinely charming and (more important) funny guy. The numbers at FXX must've been dismal. Hard to move over to a new network that many viewers still don't know even exists.... Chris Rock was the original executive producer behind this, by the way.
Per FX, Bell's last edition is tomorrow night -- Jim Norton as guest -- but the best-of-the-week "Mixtape" episode Sunday night at 11 is the final stand.
