NBC Cancels Series

Jul 20, 2011  •  Post A Comment

NBC has announced that it is pulling the plug on one of its shows, with the final episode to air this week, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

The show is the experimental anthology series "Love Bites." The last episode of the series will air Thursday at 10 p.m.

It marks the end of a series that has been hurt by production and casting issues and was originally scheduled to debut last fall, the piece says. It debuted instead last month as a summer series with weak viewer pull, with just 2.5 million people watching the first episode. It later settled in with an average of about 2 million viewers per episode.

  1. We thought the show was entertaining and liked the way the stories and characters crossed over. Sorry to see they are pulling the plug ont his one.

  2. I feel the same way. Can’t quite understand why the ratings were so low.

  3. Um maybe the show just wasn’t funny. Oh yes, that’s right, it wasn’t funny. But Love Bites is not alone. Too many of these male/female/boy/girl/sex/dating/relationship shows have rarely hit the mark and their just do-overs of hit shows like How I Met Your Mother. Some of them just aren’t funny.

  4. To be honest, I have not watched NBC since John Stamos was on ER. When I stopped on NBC, it seems to be ignorant comedy, with fake laugh tracks or no laughing at all. For example, ‘The Office’ was horrid and dry on BBC… same for NBC. Seems that NBC, now the rest of the networks seem to think dry comedy is the way to go. I have not watched comedy since the The Nanny and Frasier got bumped off air.
    Too bad the writing is god awful, to say it mildly. Guess the best writing is passe now. Forget ‘Lucy,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Golden Girls,’Empty Nest’ and other former TV hits… that still stay on the most popular lists, that were written cleverly and well. Seems that since the strikes SAG strikes in the late 90’s… TV’s BEST writing has gone 6 feet under… and not the series.
    Yes, even DH got stale after series 2… and lost allot of quality. That’s why I didn’t even continue to watch it. Too bad it became “gay drama,” replacing ‘Ugly Betty,’ which I attempted to watch.. but couldn’t handle.
