Showtime Cancels Late-Night Talk Show ‘Ziwe’ After Two Seasons

    *Showtime’s late-night talk show “Ziwe” has been canceled after two seasons. 

    Comedian Ziwe Fumudoh created, hosted, and executive produced the show that satirized race, politics, and other cultural issues. She also put celebrities in the hot seat. Season 2 featured guests like Drew Barrymore, Michael Che, Amber Riley, Chet Hanks, Nicole Byer, Hannibal Buress, and Charlamagne Tha God.

    When Charlamagne appeared on the show, Ziwe grilled him about his alleged hatred for Black women.

    “So, you’ve had beefs with Lil Mama, Mo’Nique, Cassie, Azelia Banks, your own co-host Angela Yee, the list goes on and on and on and on,” Ziwe said, to which Charlamagne responded, “Beefs is a strong word.”

    “You’ve maligned Black women,” Ziwe said. “So, why do you hate Black women, exactly?” she asked.

    Charlamagne went on to say that he actually loves Black women, but admitted, “I guess I can see where people would say that, if you want to take those three or four times and put them together in a montage.”

    Elsewhere in the conversation, Charlamagne said the last time he cheated on his wife was in 2016. 

    Ziwe concluded by asking him to donate 100% of his salary to Black women’s reparations, but he declined. 

    Deadline first reported news of Ziwe’s cancelation.
