There Will Be No Next Caller! Dane Cook's NBC Comedy Canceled Before It Even Premiered!

Ouch!

It's bad enough when a fledgeling show is cancelled by its network after only an episode or two, like the recently axed Made In Jersey, but we can imagine it must be even worse to be picked up to series…and then pulled before even MAKING it to air!

Which is what has sadly happened to Dane Cook's previously-upcoming midseason comedy, Next Caller!

The NBC series set at a satellite radio station was picked up back in May and already filmed four of the six-episode order, but according to network sources, execs felt it wasn't evolving in the desired direction, pulled the plug on the project, and will NOT even be airing anything they've completed so far!

Good lord!

Here's hoping that their two other midseason comedies - 1600 Penn and Save Me - fare off at least a LITTLE better than this one!

And by that we mean make it to primetime! If even for one night!

Better luck next time, Dane!

    Which is probably Karma for his Dark Knight shooting jokes

    Never liked the guy, so I'm not surprised.

    I don't get it. Then why spend the money or invest it? Just put the darn thing on, run it at 3 a.m. if you will but give it some airtime. You never know what will appeal to people sometimes. There's no formula. Seinfeld was not instantly number 1, but they gave it a chance. These days no chance. Geez! Waste of money all around.

    Dane Cook is a no talent fuckbag. They probably got sick of his attitude and realized that popular does not necessarily mean funny. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy ;)

    Yeah Made in Jersey was SOOOO Stupid. This show I dunno. But Dane Cook is pretty passe and played out. The Paul Reiser Show didn't even last 15 minutes into the 1st episode 7 they canned it. LOL. Hey unless a show is Modern Family quality good it is gonna tank.
    I love The Neighbors that is a funny show. Whitney is pretty funny too.
    But Please can 2 Broke stupid girls & Don't trust the no talent B in Apt 23. Both shows STINK. The one with Zooey DeChanel is cute though.
