Both series debuted to low numbers, with SportsDome drawing 1.5 million viewers and Sports Show with only 1 million. In comparison, lead-in show Tosh.0, which was recently renewed, has been averaging 4.2 million viewers in its third season.
Comedy Central has been trying to find success with farce news shows to capitalize on its winning formula with flagships The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.. Past failed attempts include David Alan Grier's Chocolate News, which was canceled after one season, and David Spade's The Showbiz Show, which aired for three seasons.
