Cancellation Blues: TV Shows That Only Got A Few Episodes Aired Before Getting Canned

Published

on

Having a TV show is extremely difficult in this day and age. Around springtime, many shows find out whether they’re coming back next season (and many crew, whether they have a job). Some shows don’t get lucky enough to reach the season finale. These shows didn’t even get the chance to have five episodes aired.

My Generation

My Generation took its inspiration from the Swedish series God’s Highway (Blomstertid). Airing on ABC in the fall of 2010, the show dealt with the lives of high schoolers in the year 2000. The series was canceled after the first two episodes aired. The remaining six episodes were aired online.

Wicked City

Wicked City was destined for success on ABC with its pilot episode gaining rave reviews. Low ratings forced the network to cancel the show after three episodes. While the show was picked up for 10 episodes, the network ceased production after episode eight. The remaining episodes were put on Hulu.

Osbournes Reloaded

After seeing the success MTV had with The Osbournes, Fox wanted to get some of that action too. Unfortunately, Osbournes Reloaded was a complete nightmare. Many Fox affiliates refused to air show due to its content. Universally panned by critics, the variety show was canceled after one episode. Five episodes were unaired, and they haven’t been seen to this day.

Doubt

CBS’ Doubt will go down as a monumental series for the transgender community. This was the first primetime show to have a transgender character played by a transgender person (actress Laverne Cox). Unfortunately, having Emmy-winning actress Katherine Heigl in the lead role didn’t help much. The show was cancelled after two episodes.

CBS

We Are Men

With actors Kal Penn, Jerry O’Connell, and Tony Shalhoub in the cast, what could possibly go wrong? Well, for CBS sitcom We Are Men, a lot. After poor ratings, the network pulled the plug after two episodes. The show’s remaining nine episodes have not been aired. For show producer Rob Greenberg, who produced episodes of How I Met Your Mother and Frasier, it was back to the drawing board.
