LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Comedian Jay Mohr says ESPN pulled the plug on his show, ``Mohr Sports.″

The show, which had nine time slot changes in 16 weeks, debuted on April 2 and won’t return for a second season, Mohr said during an appearance on CBS’ ``The Late Late Show.″

``It’s a fancy way of saying canceled, they didn’t pick up the second year option,″ the 31-year-old said. ``But it was a bit of a train wreck from the beginning.″

Mohr, who infused the show with salacious content, was recruited to Disney’s ESPN from Fox Sports Net.

He co-stars in the comedies ``The Adventures of Pluto Nash,″ opening Friday, and ``Simone,″ opening Aug. 23.
