“We loved making that show, but unfortunately it never resonated with audiences like we hoped,” said Simmons in a statement. “And that’s on me.”

HBO said it will continue working with Simmons on projects as part of his multi-year deal, but does not yet know what those projects will be.

“HBO is committed to Bill Simmons, and we are excited to bring his unique vision to bear on an array of new programming initiatives under the HBO Sports banner in 2017,” said Peter Nelson, executive vice president for HBO Sports.
