Like a seasoned comic, Kathy Griffin took a bit of bad news and turned it into stand-up material.
The comedian was gearing up for a Friday performance in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday when she learned that Bravo wasn't bringing back her talk show, "Kathy."
The program's second season just began in January.
When it came time to take the stage at the Taft Theatre, Griffin found a way to poke fun at the news - although she did bury it into her act, said a review in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
She explained to the crowd at the Taft that she found out "Kathy" wasn't going to be renewed the day before, prompting "boos" from the audience in response.
But Griffin turned it around, "predicting the demise of Bravo," the Enquirer said.
She also confirmed the cancellation on her Twitter account, calling the news "sad but true."
Kathy makes me laugh out loud in her stand-up shows. However, couldn't get into her talk show as for me, it came across as sort of frenetic. She's tough and will be fine. Good grief – she's worth about $20M so it's not like she's looking for her next meal!...
Very sad that her show was cancelled. Perhaps it would have fared better on another network like LOGO.
Thanks Kathy for a good run.
Her comedy is lackluster at best. She has lowered herself to the level of poop and fart jokes. Her last desperate attempt at humor. Jokes on you Kathy!
She's going the way of Joan Rivers, who, frankly, did her best work 30 years ago.
The people who booed when they heard the show was cancelled were her relatives, which made up 90% of the audience.
Hey Kathy, can u please take Alec Baldwin with you when u go?
Kathy is a creepy self absorbed creature. Time for her to get a real job.
I can't say I've seen her show. She can be funny, but is usually pretty brassy. I can take or leave her. Another one who I just really don't like is that Sarah Silverman. I don't find her funny at all.
But Griffin is like joined at the hip to Andy Cohen who's running Bravo. So she had to have known this was coming well before and been fine with it.
I'm thinkin' maybe she even asked to be done with her Bravo program because she's now a much bigger star than when she started the "My Life on the...." show and so he has many other better paying gigs and the commitment to the TV show was slowing her down. I'm convinced the faux surprise at the decision was all show.

Her stand-up specials are better than the talk-show anyway.
Poor Kathy. I hope she will be ok.
