Showtime Opts Out Early From Series Yahoo
The series still has a little ways to go, but Showtime has apparently seen enough. The pay-cable channel is pulling the plug on the current season of “The Franchise,” Yahoo Sports reports.
The show is tracking Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins, who may wish they could cancel the rest of their season too -- they're currently 10 games under .500 and mired in last place in the National League East.
The eight-episode season of “The Franchise” was scheduled to run through Aug. 29, but Showtime has decided to pull the plug after tonight’s seventh episode.
