CMT has canceled its first scripted sitcom, announcing that it will not bring the show back for a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

The show is "Working Class," which starred Ed Asner and Melissa Peterman.

The network remains open to developing scripted programs, the story says, and has two scripted telepics in development. One stars Ricky Schroder and the other stars LeAnn Rimes, the piece says.

"Working Class," which ended its first season April 1, debuted in January with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among viewers 18 to 49 years old, the story says.
