US political analyst Mark Halperin has been dumped from The Circus, should the series return.
The series looked at campaigns in the recent US election, airing in Australia on Stan.
Halperin’s axing follows CNN reporting five women accused him of sexually harassment while they worked at ABC News during the 1990s and 2000s. That number has since grown to more than a dozen.
Halperin a lengthy apology on his social media conceding his “aggressive and crude” behaviour towards women while at ABC News.
“Should The Circus move forward with another season, Mark Halperin will not be a part of it,” said a Showtime spokesperson in a statement.
