Philipps revealed the news that her Tina Fey-produced E! late-night talk show was getting axed on Twitter and in a late-night Instagram video, adding that it was "lame" that there would only be "one woman in late night at a time." Busy Tonight premiered on Oct. 28, 2018. "Here’s the thing, you guys. My show, Busy Tonight is not going to continue on E! after May 16th," she said, according to Deadline. "They decided not to pick it up. Look, we’re meeting with people and seeing if there’s another place that makes sense for it to go. Because I would like to continue doing it. We would all like to figure out a way to continue to make it. It’s wild because we’ve only been doing the show for a relatively short period of time. In that time, I feel we’ve been able to accomplish so much creatively and I guess culturally and I think we’ve had a real point of view. I’m so proud of all of the things we’ve been able to do and I feel the show is really successful in that way but I don’t know what to say...We’ve talked to some people and we are trying to figure out if there’s a place that makes sense for our show to go to, and hopefully we will be able to figure that out. I think we will. I have faith in me. I hope that you know we can continue to do the show somewhere else. I hope that we figure that out, because it does seem lame that there would be just, like, just be one woman in late night at a time."
