As part of a programming overhaul taking place at a couple of major cable channels, a comedy series has been canceled after three seasons. Deadline.com reports that TBS canceled “Sullivan & Son,” part of an ongoing renovation of the programming lineups at that channel and TNT.
“Sullivan & Son” and “Men at Work” were the first original comedies series on TBS to take hold, the story notes. “Men at Work” was canceled in May, while “Cougar Town” was also wrapping up. That means the only returning original scripted series on TBS for 2015 is “Ground Floor,” the story reports.
“Sullivan & Son” was set at a bar in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood. The third season averaged 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in viewers 18-49, with those numbers down 21% and 26%, respectively, from the previous season, the piece reports.
The article notes that TBS’s sister network TNT has recently canceled three established shows: “Dallas,” “Franklin & Bash” and “Perception.”
