Netflix has decided to cancel a pair of talk shows on Friday: “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” and “The Break With Michelle Wolf.”

Both shows had finished their respective runs, with “The Break” wrapping up its 13 episode order on July 31. The streamer will not order any more episodes.

The two talk shows were on the air for less than a year. “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale” debuted in February, while “The Break With Michelle Wolf” premiered over Memorial Day weekend.

Wolf’s debut for “The Break” came right after her hosting gig during April’s White House Correspondents Dinner that got some major pushback because of its caustic tone. “The Joel McHale Show” and “The Break” were ordered for 10 and 13 episodes, respectively. The two shows followed Netflix’s Chelsea Handler-hosted talk show, “Chelsea” which was canceled after two seasons.

Netflix is still in the talk show space however, with Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and David Letterman’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.” The streamer will debut this fall former “Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj’s “Patriot Act,” Norm Macdonald’s “Norm Macdonald Has a Show” and a panel show, “The Fix,” with Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley.
