Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights won't be renewed by Channel 4 for second series

Frankie Boyle’s controversial comedy series Tramadol Nights has not been renewed for a second series, Channel 4 has decided. The series was investigated by Ofcom following over 500 complaints being received by Channel 4, over jokes ridiculing the disabled son of Katie Price. A spokesperson for Channel 4 confirmed to Scotland on Sunday that no further episodes of the series would be commissioned and that a pilot for another series by Boyle would also not be transmitted. Boyle told The Daily Record: “I was happy with it but you can see why they didn’t want to recommission something that was getting them front-page hatred.”
