Less than a year after The DL Hughley Show launched on TV One, the late-night series is ending.
The cable network made the announcement Thursday on Twitter, saying tonight’s broadcast would be the last.
“The DL Hughley Show will air its final episode tonight so DL can focus on his nationally syndicated radio show,” TV One tweeted at 8:33 p.m. ET. “Thank you to all the fans who have watched nightly! And don’t worry, that DL political commentary you love, isn’t going anywhere. Catch DL on a radio station near you!”

Hughley followed it up with a tweet of his own, saying the show would be looking for a new home, where “nobody can tell me what to do.”
“If you’re a fan of the DL HughleyShow thank you!!!! We’re leaving TV One but stay tuned,” he tweeted two hours later. “We’ll be announcing soon where we’re going. This time I can drink & nobody can tell me what to do. #TeamDl #ThankU4RockinWithUs.”

The nightly series premiered on March 18, 2019, and was shot in Burbank, California.
It featured the outspoken actor and comedian, along with co-host Jasmine Sanders, using humor to address hot button issues. The show aired Monday through Thursday nights.
Among the pair’s many celebrity guests were Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez, Morris Chestnut, Meagan Good, Erica Campbell, Tommy Davidson, Bobby Brown, Jeremy Piven, and Tito Jackson.
The interviews were often raw and real, and featured Hollywood stars sharing little-known stories, including when Chestnut admitted Steven Seagal was a nightmare to work with. [Watch the video below]
In a sit-down interview with Urban Hollywood 411 in June, Hughley said no topic was too hot for him to handle.
“I don’t believe that any topic is off limits,” he said.
Although the comedian did admit conversations about religion and the black church could sometimes get uncomfortable.
“When it comes to religion, that is a very sticky point for a lot of people. And so, those have been the most challenging,” he explained.
The DL Hughley Show was produced for TV One by Pygmy Wolf Productions, with D.L. Hughley and KP Anderson serving as executive producers.
