Back in February ‘VICE’ would follow up their wildly popular show ‘Desus and Mero’ with newest show ‘Vice Live’. The series would put together 4 comedic acts to discuss the latest in culture along with celebrity focused interviews. Well just after a little over a month, the series will no longer move forward. Yesterday, it was reported that due to low ratings, Vice has decided to no longer air the show.
Less than two months after launching its flagship series Vice Live, Viceland has decided to cancel the program, Deadline confirmed Monday. “For the past two months, Vice Live has been doing it live from our Brooklyn HQ four nights a week with an unpredictable, beautifully crazy show that has showcased the best of Vice and shined a light on some of the hottest emerging talent in the worlds of comedy, music, television, and food,” read a memo from Viceland President Guy Slattery. “Looking ahead, we’ll be breaking out some of the most popular talent and formats from Live.”…Vice Live was created to cover the day’s hottest topics and trends, led by comedian/actress Marie Faustin, writer/comedian/internet provocateur Zack Fox, comedian/director/photographer Sandy Honig, and rapper/host Fat Tony. The network touted the series as continually experimenting and evolving in real-time, with a focus on comedy pieces, celebrity visits, short-form videos, field pieces and check-in’s from Vice’s outposts across the globe.
