It’s a sad day for Detroiters who were fan of the TV show of the same name. Comedy Central today opted against bringing the buddy comedy “Detroiters” back for a third season, co-star Sam Richardson announced via Twitter.
Sadly, @Detroiters won’t be picked up for a season 3 at Comedy Central. I want to thank everyone who watched and supported the show. It was a dream to make and I’m proud that those who did see it enjoyed it. Maybe it will find a home elsewhere, who knows? But truly, thank you.

On today’s show, we wax nostalgic about the beloved but short-lived show.
Jer speaks with David DeMuth, president and CEO of Southfield-based Doner. That’s the real-life ad agency that was the arch-nemesis of the show’s fictional Cramblin Duvet advertising firm.
How’d the show settle on Doner as its foil?
Elsewhere, we report on the other news that has Detroit talking — that HopCat is doing away with its popular Crack Fries out of deference to the reality that crack is a horribly addictive drug that has devastated families and whole neighborhoods in places like Detroit. The actual fries and recipe will remain, however. Which leads us to talk about our favorite fries.
Yes, our show today gets absurd, fast.
Elsewhere, we run down:
- A new snow-plowing protocol in the notoriously under-plowed city of Detroit
- A planned expansion of Oakland Community College’s downtown Royal Oak campus (the Daily Tribune has the full story)
- The Detroit auto show inks a seven-year deal keeping it at Cobo through 2026
- And some holiday fun including Santa Claus, beer tasting and classic arcade video games are coming to the Fisher Building lobby on Saturday
