TNT Cancels Critically Acclaimed Series

Jul 18, 2011  •  Post A Comment

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."


  1. It is a shame that a truly quality TV program is lost again. TNT and other networks need to look at how they promote their shows. I know that many people I asked about this show have never even heard about it. As the universe for television programming continues to grow, this is going to continue to be a problem for all networks.

  2. The Emmy noms were announced on Thursday, and the show was canceled on Friday. That’s a week to the LAT?

  3. It’s a shame. For a show that didn’t have a ginormous audience to begin with, what was TNT expecting for a split second season? This is very disappointing.

  4. Maybe there’s a place for it on AMC’s schedule.
