First there was Good Behavior. TNT pulled the plug on the Michelle Dockery drama after airing two seasons despite receiving positive reviews. However, its ratings were anemic, barely generating 595,000 viewers and 0.2 in the 18-49 demo during its sophomore run. Creator and executive producer Chad Hodge made the announcement via his Instagram.

With a heavy heart I have to let you know that Good Behavior will not return for a third season on TNT. I’ve always said I could write about Letty and Javier for 500 episodes. Their relationship and place in the world live on the edge of something unique and beautiful and I’m more proud of creating their story than anything in my TV career thus far. The experience of making Good Behavior was also the best of my career. Collaborating with Michelle Dockery, Juan Diego Botto and the entire cast… with pilot director Charlotte Sieling, producing director Mikkel Nørgaard, and all the episodic directors… with Blake Crouch and the writers… with my producing partners Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements… with our kick-ass creative team and crew… we were one family making this show and it was better because of every person who donated their creative lifeblood. You can see it on display in every episode currently streaming on Hulu. To our fans… our incredible fans around the world: THANK YOU. Thank you for loving what we made, for the letters and DMs and gifts, for the love. If I could keep writing the story of Letty and Javier for you I would. The last episode of S2 is not the ending. Actually I did write a bonus scene for you that would have been in Season 3… swipe left and you’ll see. So just know that Letty and Javier are out there somewhere… living their best lives (eh probably not lol). But they are alive. Their story continues. Though for now, as Letty would say… BYE. #GoodBehavior
Over at NBC, the news wasn’t any better for Reverie. The peacock network decided not to go ahead with a second season of the high-concept drama starring Sarah Shahi, Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jessica Lu, Kathryn Morris and Kai Scott. Its average of 2.10 million viewers and 0.4 rating was just enough to make it NBC’s second-lowest rated summer series. Trial & Error earned that dishonorable distinction.
Though not officially canceled, the future doesn’t look so bright for The Alec Baldwin Show. After four episodes, ABC has shuffled the low-rated program from Sunday to the graveyard that is Saturday.
