It is being reported that Showtime has cancelled White Famous after its first season. The new comedy had just wrapped its 10-episode freshman run earlier this month after an October premiere.

Based on the personal experiences of Jamie Foxx, White Famous starred Jay Pharoah as a talented, up-and-coming young black comedian who, while furthering his career, seeks to maintain his credibility in the stand-up world as he crosses over into becoming "white famous."

The writing was somewhat on the wall that Showtime may not continue with the series. Not only was viewership on the low side, but fellow newcomer SMILF was already renewed back in November despite a later premiere.
