ABC announced toward the end of the day on Friday, Oct. 24, 2014, that it has made the first cancellation of the 2014-2015 fall television season.
“ABC has pulled the plug on freshman comedy ‘Manhattan Love Story,’” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The story says that ABC “will replace the comedy with back-to-back original episodes of fellow rookie ‘Selfie’ on Tuesdays starting Nov. 4. ABC already planned to preempt [‘Manhattan’] next week.”
THR notes that the show started with 4.3 million total viewers and “a 1.3 in the all-important adults 18-49 demographic, down from its ‘Selfie’ lead-in. Week two of the rom-com slipped to 3.2 million total viewers and a 0.9 in the demo. Its most recent airing slipped to a 0.7 in the key demo, a series low — and led to a series low for ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.’”
