Cash Cab Canceled: Discovery Ends Game Show's Seven Year RideS

Discovery Channel confirmed last night to Vulture that it was pulling over its successful game show Cash Cab after six seasons on the air.

Despite the popular premise — "There are 13,000 cabs in the streets of the Big Apple, but there's only one that pays you!" — and multiple Emmy nominations and wins (both for the show and for host Ben Bailey), Discovery has decided not to greenlight a seventh season.

The network will continue to air re-runs of the show through September, and repeats can also be seen in syndication. The option has also been left open for the show's producer, Lion Television, to convince another channel to pick it up.
