Why Was It Cancelled? The show seemed to have the odds against it before it even aired, as it was pushed from a mid-season start last year to a Summer run. By all appearances, ABC had given up on it and was apparently dumping it off to Summer for a burn-off run. But then a slight jolt to their plans occurred when the show bowed to very good numbers for that typically low-viewership time of year. It sustained those for several weeks, but then its ratings started to taper off and by the time the show wrapped up in August it seemed surely on its way out. The network had already let the actors’ contracts lapse at the end of June, and that appeared to put the show’s future in question. And the fact that no word on its fate came as its season wrapped up seemed to assure that ABC was done with it which they finally confirmed with a late cancellation announcement.
