Wanda Sykes, 'The Wanda Sykes Show'
Aired: Nov. 2009 - April 2010
Jul. 16, 2013
Sykes is often very funny. On her late-night talk show on FOX, however, she felt neutered and out of place. Attempts to make the show seem edgy and young by having a bar on stage, allowing the host and her guests to drink (a choice later employed to greater effect by Andy Cohen on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live") came off as gimmicky and forced. The show was canceled after just one season, leaving the network without any late-night programming for the first time since the 1994-95 season.
