ABC has decided to pull the plug on a drama series after trying it out in a couple of different time slots and seeing it fail to gain ratings momentum. Deadline.com reports that the network canceled “Black Box.”
The show, which was originally announced as a limited series, has aired all 13 episodes produced for its first season. The drama starred Kelly Reilly as a neuroscientist who struggles with mental illness.
The series launched in the Thursday 10 p.m. slot, premiering with a modest 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It lost ground after a shift to the typically softer 8 p.m. slot, ending its run with a 0.7 rating in the demo.
