Two Freshman Series Get the Ax

May 9, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Two first-year broadcast series fell victim to the cancellation ax this week. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the CW officially pulled the plug on “No Tomorrow” and “Frequency.”

Both shows were widely expected to be canceled.

“The CW had high hopes for ‘No Tomorrow’ to join the ranks of light hourlong entries ‘Jane the Virgin’ and ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ (and for star Tori Anderson to break out in the same way Golden Globe winners Gina Rodriguez and Rachel Bloom have),” THR notes. “But the apocalyptic comedy from CBS TV Studios failed to enter the awards conversation like ‘Jane’ and ‘Crazy.’ The first-year comedy, from Jane alum Corinne Brinkerhoff, mustered just a 0.3 average rating and 1 million viewers and failed to earn a back-nine pickup.”

“Frequency” also failed to get a back-nine order, averaging a 0.4 rating and 1.5 million viewers, THR notes.
