Wolf has been very vocal in her left-wing views, and had used her Netflix show to push a liberal agenda.

Netflix has pulled the plug on two of its topical shows, The Break with Michelle Wolf, and The Joel McHale Show.

The Joel McHale Show - which mined reality TV for laughs and followed in the tradition of the Community vet's E! show, The Soup - launched in February with 13 weekly installments. Six more episodes were produced all at once and were released in mid-July.

Michelle Wolf, the comedian best known for her acerbic and insulting jokes at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, just had her Netflix show cancelled after only a few months.

Prior to her show, Wolf had worked for four years as a writer-contributor on "The Daily Show" and writer on "Late Night With Seth Meyers".

Michelle Wolf took aim at Ivanka Trump on her Netflix show in July.

In the end, sources say neither show drew enough viewership to secure a renewal.

The network has Jerry Seinfeld's popular Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which it lured away from Crackle, and My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with late-night icon David Letterman.

Netflix previous year canceled its first foray into the genre, Chelsea Handler's celebrity talk show, following its second season. Coming up this fall are Patriot Act with The Daily Show's Hasan Minhaj, Norm Macdonald has a Show, and The Fix, a comedy panel show helmed by Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley.
