Comedy Central has pulled the plug on The Sarah Silverman Program after three seasons. This week, the network opted not to renew the popular series — despite an aggressive campaign to save the show that swept the social networking scene last month.

The news hardly comes as a surprise. In a chat with TV Squad last month, Silverman’s co-star comedian Brian Posehn revealed that the Comedy Central show would likely not make it to a fourh season.
“Just because it was so tough to get them to give us the money to do the third season,” Posehn explained. “I don’t know. I’m also a negative person. I’m not going to be the blue sky-er, you know. I feel like we’re lucky to have done what we’ve done, and I would be very happy to come back and do a season four. But I’d also be completely surprised if it happened.”
