TNT has canceled a critically acclaimed series just a week after one of its stars received a nomination for an Emmy, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
The show is "Men of a Certain Age," which has struggled in the ratings despite being praised by critics. One of its stars, Andre Braugher, was nominated for an Emmy last week for his role on the program about three childhood friends dealing with midlife crises. Despite the star power of Ray Romano and Scott Bakula, the program never drew a big audience.
"This was an extremely difficult decision for us," a TNT spokeswoman said. "While the show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances, the audience simply hasn’t built to the point where we can continue the series."
