Well, that didn’t last long. After two low-rated showings, FOX pulled the plug on Knock Knock Live. The Ryan Seacrest-hosted show’s last episode only delivered 1.6 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. Not even Justin Bieber surprising a fan with a Quinceanara could lure in viewers ;)

I watched half of the premiere and literally fell asleep. With The Million Second Quiz only lasting a season on NBC, and this trainwreck on FOX for a split second, Seacrest must be getting a bit antsy about finding an on-camera gig after American Idol ends next year.

Did you watch the show? Do you think Seacrest can find another hit show to star in? At least producing those Kardashian shows will keep him busy for a long time. Sadly enough. Sound off below.

In 2016, the once-behemoth singing reality show will sing its final note. FOX announced Season 15 of American Idol will be its last. It truly is the end of an era.

“You know, it was not an easy decision,” said FOX chairman and CEO Gary Newman. ”American Idol has been such a vital part of Fox for its run, and we spent a lot of time talking with producers about the future of American Idol and collectively we arrived at the conclusion that it was time to bring the show to an end. But we wanted to do it in a way that felt special and celebratory and treated the show the way it deserved to be treated.”

Even by The CW standards, Hart of Dixie garnered anemic ratings. After four seasons, the drama’s luck finally ran out. The network revealed it canceled the Rachel Bilson medical dramedy.

The news shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans. The CW renewed eight series back in December and Hart of Dixie was not one of them. In addition, the show’s creator Leila Gerstein tweeted about the “final three episodes” back in March. Find out below what other show The CW pulled the plug on.

ABC Confirms Revenge Cancellation

It appears Emily’s infamous red Sharpie has run dry. Many fans felt it was coming after Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) was blown to bits a couple of episodes ago, but were still hopeful. The powers-that-be squashed their hopes today by confirming the show’s cancellation via Entertainment Weekly.

After four seasons, Revenge will air its last episode on Sunday, May 10. The ABC drama made a splash during its freshman series, premiering to 10 million viewers. Once it shifted to Sundays, the viewership declined. A recent episode only garnered 4.45 million eyeballs.

Showrunner Sunil Nayar revealed they delivered a pitch on what direction Revenge would take in Season 5 after Victoria’s death, but both parties decided it was the perfect time to end the series after viewing the Season 4 finale, which is now the series finale titled. Will Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke meet her untimely death as well given that the title of the episode is “Two Graves?” Check out Nayar’s statement to EW.com below.

Downton Abbey To End After Season 6

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Brace yourselves folks. Downton Abbey will close its doors after Season Six. PBS and producer Carnival Films announced the heartbreaking news Thursday.

“The ‘Downton’ journey has been amazing for everyone aboard. People ask if we knew what was going to happen when we started to make the first series and the answer is that, of course we had no idea. Exactly why the series had such an impact and reached so many people around the world, all nationalities, all ages, all types, I cannot begin to explain. But I do know how grateful we are to have been allowed this unique experience. I suspect the show will always be a principal marker in most of our careers as we set out from here, and if so, I consider that a blessing and a compliment.” – Julian Fellowes, writer and creator

The period drama is PBS’ most popular series of all time. During it’s run, it’s amassed 51 Emmy nominations so far and winning 11. Not to mention numerous Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, BAFTAs and so on.

I’m curious exactly what caused the production company to pull the trigger? Was it production costs? The drama’s stars wanting to move on? Or some other crazy reason? Clearly, it’s not the ratings because it’s a juggernaut in that area.
