Fox cancels 'Talkshow with Spike Feresten,' renews 'Fringe'

May 5, 2009 |  9:47 am

Spike-anna First "MadTV" and now Spike Feresten bites the dust.

B&C is reporting that Fox will not renew its late-night entry "Talkshow with Spike Feresten" for a fourth season -- especially not with Wanda Sykes on board to headline a show of her own on Saturdays this fall.

Sykes' as yet untitled series will fill in at 11 p.m. for "MadTV." No word yet what, if anything, will replace Feresten's midnight slot. According to the network's announcement last month, Sykes' show will include commentary on hot-button issues, feature recurring personalities for panel discussions and segments shot outside of the studio.

There's happier news for J.J. Abrams' "Fringe," which Monday scored a 22-episode second season. Among the season's new series, "Fringe" ranks No. 1 among adults.
