It didn’t acquire a large enough audience despite the critical acclaim," said Craig Erwich, Hulu's vice president of originals, of Silverman's show at the TV press tour. He made a similar comment about The First, from House of Cards creator Beau Willimon. "Unfortunately, the audience did not materialize," Erwich said.
