Fox Cancels 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett'

This may come as quite a surprise -- especially for those of you that didn't even know this show was still on air -- but Fox has decided to cancel its freshman sketch comedy show, 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett.' The network aired six episodes of the show earlier this fall, on Sunday nights at 9:30PM ET. Despite having some series comedy talent behind-the-scenes, like Jamie Foxx , 'Mad TV' co-creators Fax Bahr and Adam Small and 'Arrested Development' creator Mitch Hurwitz, the sketch comedy failed to find an audience, having only pulled in a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo.

Kanye West Marries His Ego on 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (VIDEO)

While it's looking less and less likely that 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX) is going to get a second season -- the series premiere hour averaged only 2.4 million viewers -- we did get to enjoy a stronger outing in this second week. Particularly, we enjoyed his send-up of Kanye West. Crockett said what we've all been thinking, and put it into a slickly produced new music video. The big glasses even went a long way to masking Crockett's very distinctive eyes, thus making his impression of West even more solid. We particularly liked his taking a tip from 'The Godfather' and stuffing something down in his jowls to better match West's distinctive jaw.

Obama and Palin Party Hard on Premiere of 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (VIDEO)

A new sketch comedy show premiered, picking up the reigns from 'In Living Color' and 'Chappelle's Show.' In fact, on 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (Sun., 9PM ET on FOX), Crockett even had relatives of Chappelle and the Wayans on to make it official, sort of. They were on right before he showed us his send-up of Chappelle. As you would expect with a sketch comedy show, the quality of the shorts varied dramatically. We loved the guest spots by Snoop Dogg, Russell Simmons and Samuel L. Jackson throughout the back-to-back installments we got in this premiere, but for every funny bit like Snoop Dogg in an 'Avatar' send-up, there were disappointing misfires like the arrogant gospel singer.

Affion Crockett Previews His New Sketch Comedy Show 'In the Flow' (VIDEO)

Never heard of Affion Crockett? That might change after the premiere of 'In the Flow With Affion Crockett,' (Sundays, 9PM ET on Fox) a new sketch comedy show produced by Jamie Foxx. Crockett talked about the show and his comedy career Friday on 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox). Crockett has been mostly a supporting player in films like 'Soul Men' and 'Dance Flick,' as weel as providing voices for 'The Boondocks.' He's been a working comedian and made his mark on 'Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N' Out' and on YouTube with impressions of Barack Obama and Jay-Z. "I wanted to make it more into a sketch situation with make-up and scenarios and all of that," he said, comparing his 'Wild N' Out' work to 'In the Flow.'
