Comedy Central Cancels ‘The Opposition with Jordan Klepper’

Klepper, However, will Remain with Remain with the Cable Net in a New Series

Comedy Central’s daily late-night program “The Opposition with Jordan Klepper”  will end its run after one season, with the final episode slated for Thursday, June 28. Debuting on Sept. 25, 2017, the show, which satirizes right-wing politics, airs each Monday through Thursday at 11:30 pm ET, following “The Daily Show.” But Klepper is staying on the network with a new weekly half-hour series. Tentatively titled “Klepper,” it will feature the comedian out in the field, traveling the country and speaking to people. No day of the week has been announced for the show to air on, but the network is reportedly looking at the 10 p.m. time slot.

Starting July 2, repeats of sitcom “The Office” will fill the 11:30 ET time slot, but Comedy Central says it plans to eventually find another original series to air after “The Daily Show.”
