ABC’s Trophy Wife Cancelled


ABC has cancelled Trophy Wife along with the comedies SuburgatoryMixology and The Neighbors. If you read my post last fall, Why Aren’t You Watching Trophy Wife?, who know how sad I am about this. This show was really funny. The best part was the character of Burt played by the Albert Tsai. He was so wonderful. In scenes with bigger stars he was a scene stealer on many occasions.

It’s definitely not a surprise that it got canceled. After series low 0.7 rating it got this past Tuesday, I knew it was done. It never got its fair shake at all. It was placed on Tuesday night in the 9 pm hour with The Goldbergs and no lead in. How did ABC expect it to survive? I will continue to carry on that if they had put The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife on Wednesday night with The Middle and Modern Family, those shows would have done way better in the ratings than they did.

Oh well, such are the ways of network television. I’ll just look forward to the rest of the unaired Trophy Wife episodes and to the future projects of all the cast members of this lovely show.

NBC Pulls ‘Welcome to the Family,’ ‘Ironside,’ Sets ‘Community Return


Saw this coming from a mile away. When NBC picked up this pilot, I knew for sure this was gonna fail. I mean you are remaking a show that people use to watch in the 60s and isn’t remembered by many. Nostalgia will only get you so far. People just weren’t watching. It needed to bring something else to the table and unfortunately it was just another procedural that clearly people are tired of. Hopefully Blair Underwood can get on a show soon that is worthy of the man’s talents. YAY Community is back though; probably for it’s final season.
