Shows that Got the Ax!!
It happens every season. A show you give a try and end up enjoying, gets cancelled. It happens to me all the time. I'm used to it, because I basically watch everything so I can form an opinion on it.
But this season, i can't really say that any cancellations made me upset or angry. Last year was rough with the cancellations of Taxi Brooklyn and Almost Human, Smh, but this season, nothing that was canceled really bothered me.
Let's take a look.
Interesting Cancellations from 2014-2015 Season
Eye Candy (MTV)
MTV’s crime thriller Eye Candy has been canceled after one season, star Victoria Justice announced to fans via Twitter.
The 10-episode series—which debuted in January and was based on the book by R.L. Stine—tracked Justice’s character, a 21-year-old hacker who, after joining a dating website, suspects that one of her virtual suitors may be a serial killer.
The Game (BET)
Five months after renewing The Game for an eighth season, BET announced that its flagship comedy would be coming to an end after season 9.
The Game was picked up by BET in 2009 when the comedy was cancelled by the CW after three seasons.
ABC has canceled Revenge after four seasons. The decision to end Revenge should come as no surprise given that the four-year-old show has been creatively wrapping up its ongoing mythology.
The move comes as Revenge has seen its ratings fortune dwindle. The most recent season has averaged a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 in live-plus-7.
A.D. The Bible Continues (NBC)
NBC has canceled “A.D.: The Bible Continues” after one season. “A.D” averaged about 6.5 million viewers and a 1.o in adults 18-49 in live-plus-7 Nielsen ratings across its 12-episode run, which ended June 21. The numbers were too soft for a renewal on NBC.
American Odyssey (NBC)
“American Odyssey” won’t be returning for a second round. The conspiracy thriller has been axed after one season.
The drama never took off – launching with a 1.2 in 18-49 and 5.4 million viewers in April, holding onto half of its lead-in from the A.D.: The Bible continues. It quickly slipped under one demo ratings point and then under 0.5 ratings point in Live+same day, with the final couple of episode, including last Sunday’s closer, logging a 0.4 in 18-49.
The Comedians (FX)
“The Comedians” won’t be laughing to a second season as FX is not renewing Billy Crystal’s sitcom. Despite its star power the series opened to 878,000 viewers in live-plus-same-day returns. The comedy wrapped its 13-episode run June 25 with 306,000 same-day viewers.
This marks the first FX live-action original series since the 2011 Lights Out not to get a second season and the first live-action comedy since the 2008 Testees.
NBC is closing the book on Hannibal. The full 13-episode third season will ran its course this week.
Though critically acclaimed with a rabid fanbase, the series has been ratings-challenged from the start, and it hit a series-low 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 with the two most recent episodes to air. Those two episodes averaged a mere 1.65 million viewers overall.
