Why Was It Cancelled? This show started out with decent ratings for a Tuesday 10 PM EST show, and the network actually gave it an extension of three episodes. But the numbers started to drop off and the network shifted it to schedule spackle mode, filling up an hour on the schedule as needed between frequent preemptions. The show had some support from fans, but not enough to convince ABC to give it a second season nod, so this becomes yet another one-season-and-done Peak TV casualty.
