Why Was It Cancelled? This show debuted with a decent lead-in from the American Idol reboot, but never managed to take advantage of its timeslot.  Its premiere drew acceptable ratings (a 0.9 score based on same day viewing for the 18-49 demographic), but it dropped pretty quickly after that and ABC decided to send it to the Network Executioner.  The cancellation was pretty much expected and I have not heard too much outcry from the fans, so it does not appear to have developed much of a following.
