Ratings for the show did not improve after its debut drew 919,000 viewers in early May.

"Saturday Night Politics" last aired on Aug. 17.

The show finished a distant second to Fox News Channel's "Watters World" in the cable news race in the total viewers, but was third in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic sought by advertisers behind FNC and "CNN Newsroom."

MSNBC will fill the space with reruns of the Friday edition of "All In with Chris Hayes" moving forward. 

Deutsch took to Twitter to announce the show's run had come to an end while informing viewers he will continue to appear on "Morning Joe."
