ABC pulled the plug on a comedy series after a short run. An executive producer of “Downward Dog” says the freshman sitcom has been canceled, the AP reports.
The report cites executive producer Jimmy Miller, who says the series will air its last two episodes Tuesday. The show has aired only six episodes so far.
“Miller said Friday that ABC wanted to keep ‘Downward Dog’ on its schedule but that the finances couldn’t be worked out,” the AP reports.
The news comes on the heels of ABC’s exiling of another freshman show, the drama “Still Star-Crossed,” to Saturdays in a sign that the Shondaland series also won’t be back for a second season, as we reported previously.
The most recent episode of “Downward Dog,” which aired Tuesday, delivered 3.08 million total viewers, based on Nielsen Live+Same Day data.
