On her Comedy Central show, Sarah Silverman got drunk on cough syrup, mocked the abortion rights debate and seduced none other than God.

That’s all over now.

The network says ‘The Sarah Silverman Program,’ which recently ended its third outrageous season, won’t be back for a fourth.

Inspired by Silverman’s persona as a standup comic, the scripted show featured her as a flighty, self-consumed slacker living in the fictional town of Valley Village.

Audience erosion was deemed the main reason for canceling the show.
