Kathy Griffin's talk show has been canceled.

Kathy, which debuted on Bravo last year, won't be returning for a third season, the actress-comedian said Friday during her stand-up act at Cincinnati's Taft Theatre, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The crowd booed when she revealed the news -- which she said she had been informed of the day before -- but Griffin made a joke about it, "predicting the demise of Bravo," the Enquirer reported.

She later responded to a tweet from Perez Hilton about the cancellation, writing, "Sad but tru."

Kathy debuted in April 2012, airing at 10 p.m. Thursdays. The second season premiered Jan. 10, and the hourlong weekly show was bumped to the later time slot of 11:30 p.m. starting Feb. 28.

A total of 24 episodes aired in all, with the final episode on March 28 averaging 500,000 total viewers.

Griffin, who starred in Bravo's reality show My Life on the D-List for six seasons, will continue to have a presence on the network by way of her comedy specials: She is set to tape a new special next weekend to air in the summer.

Griffin also reportedly shot a pilot for CNN alongside her New Year's Eve co-host Anderson Cooper last month.
