‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’ Canceled On Netflix, Jamie Foxx Reportedly “Involved In Decision”

Published: Saturday 19th Jun 2021 by Sam

It’s officially a wrap for Jamie Foxx‘s new Netflix sitcom ‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’

Because just two months after its debut, the streamer has pulled the plug on the sitcom – which was billed as the superstar’s big return to the genre following the success of ‘The Jamie Foxx Show’ in the 90s.

Full story below…

‘Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!’ was inspired by Foxx’s real-life relationship with his 27-year-old daughter Corinne Foxx – who was enlisted as an executive producer.

However, reviews were less than stellar – from both critics and viewers alike.

And while Netflix is renowned for not releasing viewership figures, some speculated that the show couldn’t find a sizeable enough audience in the frame since its April 14 debut.

Interestingly, Deadline reports that Foxx was “involved in the decision to end the series.” No further specifics were provided.

Sans a select few, new sitcoms haven’t fared especially well on the streaming platform – with few making it past their first season.

That said, freshman sitcom ‘The Upshaws’ – starring Wanda Sykes and Mike Epps – has been praised for its cutting edge take on the format and has regularly ranked amongst the top watched shows on Netflix.

In any case, word is that Foxx’s relationship with the streamer is intact. Case in point the two movies he has incoming on the platform – ‘They Cloned Tyrone’ and ‘Day Shift.’

    “Jamie Foxx Reportedly “Involved In Decision”

    The lies
    You’re trying to save face.

    Why would an actor pull the plug on a show that is making him millions of dollars ? It doesn’t make sense

    For netflix to cancel a show it means the show had very low viewership and bad reviews

    The Jamie Foxx show was good because the acting & writing was more authentic. He clearly tried to reach a more diverse aundince with this show.

    No surprise here. I tried to watch one episode; it was bad. The Upshaws is much better.

    It’s sad can’t have nothing as a active father I love the show and hate that things are just canceled

  8. Erica June 20, 2021

    I could not get past the pilot episode. I dislike the title, the theme song, the family smoking weed, the weird therapist, and it just was not funny.

    I don’t even know about the show, it failed because of poor advertisement

    That show was trash…i was really looking forward to it when i saw it was there….didn’t make it past 2 episodes.

  11. Sheila Jones June 22, 2021

    I enjoyed the show. It will be missed.

    I’m sorry the Jamie Foxx sitcom was cancelled. It was really good. The only suggestion I would have is less profanity would have allowed me to include my grandchildren while I watched. The storylines were for today’s youth and parents. Really good show (without the profanity)
