The news of Hasan Minhaj's exit for his own Netflix show comes after The Daily Show lost Michelle Wolf and Jessica Williams. Meanwhile, Inside Amy Schumer is in the midst of a long hiatus and Broad City "seems to be fading as a cultural phenomenon," says Miles Surrey. He adds: "Practically the only constants in Comedy Central’s lineup are South Park and, somehow, Tosh.0, which was renewed for three more seasons in February. The less said about Tosh.0 the better, but even South Park, a decades-long, profanity-laced staple of modern American culture, has seen its impact diminished."
