There's a recent trend in TV shows with female comedian leads getting the ax after short programming runs in programming.

"The Break with Michelle Wolf" on Netflix was canceled after 10 episodes, and Sarah Silverman's "I Love You, America" on Hulu was canceled after 21.

Meanwhile, male comics accused of sexual harassment, like Louis C.K., are being welcomed back to the stage.

For more on the disparity between male and female comics, KCBS' Rebecca Corral spoke with the director of the Center for Media & Social Impact at American University in Washington, D.C., Caty Borum Chatoo.
