Showtime Cancels Dice

The show was a miss with critics and viewers.

Showtime has canceled the Andrew Dice Clay comedy, Dice, after two seasons and 13 episodes.

The show starred Clay playing himself as an aging comedian trying to make a comeback in Las Vegas while reuniting with his dysfunctional family.

Dice, the show, rolled snake eyes with the critics, scoring a mere 33 out of a possible 100 at RottenTomatoes.com, the site which tracks critical reviews. Only five of 15 critics surveyed by the site said they liked the show.

“The Dice man is back with a few surprisingly funny guest stars, but they’re not enough to salvage a series of unfunny storylines,” states RottenTomatoes.com, summarizing the critics.

Verne Gay in Newsday offered an even more scathing review, borrowing from Clay’s once-successful routine as a stand-up.

“Hickory dickory dock, this review won’t come as a shock. The show is bad, the star a bit sad, his shtick as old as a rock,” Gay wrote.

The show was not a hit with viewers, either, with some episodes generating fewer than 200,000 during its initial live airing.
