NEW YORK — Comedy Central won’t be renewing “The Jeff Dunham Show” for a second season.

The show, featuring comedian Jeff Dunham and his repertoire of puppets, attracted plenty of attention, both positive and negative. Its debut drew 5.3 million viewers, a season-premiere record for Comedy Central. However, most of the reviews were terrible, and ratings dwindled during the season.

Comedy Central spokesman Steve Albani said the network will continue “to be in business with Jeff in a big way,” including a live tour, stand-up special, DVDs and consumer-products partnership.

Comedy Central signed a multiplatform deal with Mr. Dunham in March.
