Beleaguered Freshman Series at ABC Not Renewed

May 13, 2016  •  Post A Comment

A show that “started the season as the biggest can’t-miss of the freshman class after earning a rare standing ovation at San Diego Comic-Con” has been canceled, reports Lesley Goldberg in The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.

ABC’s “The Muppets” has not been renewed for a second season.

Reports THR: “The series premiere surprised ratings watchers when it topped Fox’s heavily promoted Ryan Murphy anthology ‘Scream Queens’ in head-to-head competition despite a wave of lackluster reviews.

“Subsequent episodes stumbled creatively as critics continued to take issue with the show’s depressing stories.”

  1. The Muppets was an excellent show. Well written and a nice change of pace from the other “shows” that ABC insisted were better. Maybe The Muppets should move to Netflix where they would be better appreciated.
