TBS Pulls Plug on Comedy Series THR, TheWrap
TBS has canceled one comedy series and given a renewal to another. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel canceled the workplace comedy “Men at Work” after three seasons.
The comedy is about four men who help each other with life problems while working at the same magazine, the story notes.
The piece adds: “‘Men at Work’ premiered to solid ratings in March 2012 with 2.6 million viewers, but ratings had dwindled as the series progressed. Its season-three finale, also serving as the series' swan song, drew less than 1 million viewers.”
Separately, TheWrap.com reports that “Cougar Town” has earned a sixth and final season from the network.
TBS gave the show a final 13-episode order, bringing back Courteney Cox as a recently divorced woman who re-enters the dating scene. With the renewal, the show will air its third season on TBS, after it shifted from ABC.
