TV Shows That Were Canceled Because Of Controversy



Controversy, in Hollywood, is practically guaranteed, and no one remains unscathed by it forever. Sometimes it goes away on its own, but for these shows, controversy brought cancellation. From harassment to animal abuse, these are the scandals that sunk TV shows for good.

Few comedians of the past few decades are more consequential than Louis C.K. In addition to his stand up career and his show Louie on FX, his production company, Pig Newton, has produced multiple shows for the network. Louie itself was a smash hit: It racked up awards, attracted guest stars like Marc Maron and Robin Williams, and served as a headlining success of the network. This all came to an end when details of C.K.’s long history of sexual misconduct came to light.

Rumors had followed C.K. for years, but things came to a head in 2017, when multiple women came forward about his history of sexual misconduct. After some initial denial, C.K. admitted the accusations were true. His manager Dave Becky, who co-produced Louie, was also accused of helping conceal C.K.’s actions from public scrutiny. Becky argued that he had misunderstood the allegations at the time, and apologized for the “perceived” cover-up.

There was no amount of damage control that could keep C.K.’s career from being impacted, though. Louie, which was already on a self-imposed hiatus, was effectively canceled when FX ended their business partnership with Pig Newton. The four shows C.K. was producing, Better Things, Baskets, One Mississippi and The Cops, all removed his name from the credits and moved on without him as well.

SMILF tells the story of Bridgette Bird, a broke single mom scraping by in South Boston. It is largely the creation of Frankie Shaw, who also starred in and wrote most of the show, in addition to directing many episodes. Unfortunately, Shaw’s conduct on set was so problematic, it ended up sinking the entire project. Keep watching the video to see all the TV shows that were canceled because of controversy.
