NBC Shuts Down Production For Sean Saves The World

In: Donovan, TV Shows
sean-saves-the-world-canceled

Not only did Sean Hayes not save the world, but he did squat for Thursday nights on NBC. The peacock network has yanked the sitcom from its schedule and halted production. Definitely not a surprise given its anemic ratings and the fact none of the comedy’s cast members were present at the Television Critics Tour earlier this month.

While Sean Saves The World sucked majorly, I’m a little bummed NBC canceled it now. Though it makes perfect sense given the upcoming Winter Olympics are coming and why use that valuable opportunity to promote a dead show walking. NBC requested 18 episodes but have only aired 13 and have a 14th unaired finished one in the wings.

It was only a matter of time and now it’s official. Katie Couric’s foray into daytime talk television is officially over. Disney-ABC announced in a joint statement that the current second season of Katie will be its last. Not too surprising, given that she already has another job with Yahoo! lined up. Starting in early 2014, she’ll be one of their global anchors.

“While production will continue on Katie through June 2014, we’ve mutually agreed that there will not be a third season of the show,” ABC and Couric said in a joint statement. “We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the #1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-2013, and we look forward to the rest of the season.”

If you’re a fan of any of ABC’s freshmen sitcoms, this will definitely interest you. Personally, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for more episodes of The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife. They’re my favorite out of the quartet.

Before I reveal where each show stands, here’s what they’re averaging in terms of viewership. The Goldbergs is on top with 7.5 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49. Following next is Super Fun Night with 7.4 million with a 2.8 rating in the coveted demo. Back in the Game is next with 7.3 million viewers and a 2.1 rating. Last and certainly not least is Trophy Wife with 5.7 million viewers and a 1.9 rating.

NBC Cancels Two New Shows

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Unlike CBS which is dishing out good news to several freshmen series, NBC isn’t being as kind. They’ve canceled two of their low-performing freshmen series.

Whatever night The Voice isn’t airing, NBC is in deep doo-doo. The heavily-promoted Blair Underwood vehicle, Ironside which airs on Wednesday, fell flat out of the gate and continued to attract even fewer viewers in the following weeks. It’ll air one more episode before the network yanks it from the schedule.

Not even Eva Longoria’s stunt casting on last night’s episode of Welcome To The Family and Joey Haro (second from the right) parading around shirtless could bump up the sitcom’s ratings. They were so low, even The CW’s Vampire Diaries demolished NBC’s comedy hour-long block. OUCH.

Poor Ella Rae Peck. After starring in last year’s Deception and Welcome To The Family, she’s now the poster girl for failed series. Talk about being a bad luck charm. Unlike Ironside, the sitcom is being taken off immediately. Check out what the peacock network has in store below for its newly vacant timeslots.

Television viewers were bewitched by the third iteration of American Horror Story. The witch-themed season conjured up 5.54 million total viewers and 3.87 million viewers in the adults 18-49 demo, easily the best performance for the AHS franchise. That number represents a whopping 44 percent increase in overall viewers when compared to last year’s American Horror Story: Asylum.

In addition, it beat NBC’s Ironside handily and came close to ABC’s Nashville. However, the 3.5 rating for 18-34 adults topped all programming in primetime. Take that, broadcast networks. When final Live+7 day data rolls in, American Horror Story: Coven could be the most-watched program in FX history.

Did you watch last night’s premiere? Without spoiling too much for those who haven’t seen it, how much would it suck to have Taissa Farmiga’s powers? Not fun at all, especially for some of you sluts out there ;) And can we take about that rape scene?

On the completely other spectrum, we have this season’s second casualty. Find out what show joins Lucky 7 as this season’s latest cancellation.

At the beginning of fall we are treated to dozens of new TV shows, in addition to our returning favorites. It can actually be quite overwhelming to decide what to watch given that there’s something new premiering every night. However, not too long after all of these new show premieres come the inevitable cancellations.

The first cut has already been made after only two episodes…

Mad Men Will End After Season 7

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Even though it finished Season 6 with its best ratings ever, AMC is pulling the plug on Mad Men. Though critically acclaimed and an awards magnet, the Jon Hamm series was never a huge ratings powerhouse. Being a veteran show with higher production costs, I’m not surprised it’s ending. Hopefully, Hamm finds another gig that shows off his huge schlong in tighter pants ;)

“We plan to take advantage of this chance to have a more elaborate story told in two parts, which can resonate a little bit longer in the minds of our audience,” series creator Matthew Weiner explains. “The writers, cast and other artists welcome this unique manner of ending this unique experience.”

Oxygen Officially Cancels The Glee Project

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Since a third season of The Glee Project didn’t air this summer, many assumed the Oxygen reality show wasn’t coming back. Well, now it’s official. The network confirmed that it’s canceled. While there was a strong desire to bring back the reality competition, the late renewal of Glee made it impossible to turn around a third season of the unscripted vehicle.

“The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen, but we are extremely proud of this series which launched the careers of several talented individuals. The show had so much heart and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling,” a network rep said in a statement.
