London, Jan 30 (THAINDIAN NEWS) British tabloid The Daily Mail has reported that Channel 4 has axed Frank Boyle’s comedy show Tramadol Nights because of several viewer complaints. The comedian is often accused of using foul words and that seems to have cost him his job.

The report further stated that Boyle’s planned chat show on the network has also been canceled. The network reportedly accepted the pilot of the chat show called Frankie Boyle’s Rehabilitation Programme but they have canceled it and will not proceed with the initial plan to air it.

The comedian has admitted that he is not bothered by the decision of the network. He insists that the decision is in his favor. He was quoted by The Daily Mail as saying that, “I was really happy with it, but you can see why they didn’t want to recommission something that was getting them front-page hatred, and I was a bit relieved.”

Boyle was highly criticized last year when he failed to apologize after making fun of Katie Price’s disabled child Harvey. Earlier this month, Boyle added the McCann’s to his list of victims when he claimed that the parents are happy that Magdalene is missing.
