Silicon Valley, Abby’s, Other Shows Cancelled At Various Networks
May Ends, And So Do 5 More Shows.
May, a month of bloodbath for mediocre TV shows, is finally over. But, it did not go out without letting its axe have one final chop. NBC, of course, cut three freshman shows, while HBO bid farewell to its award-winning comedy Silicon Valley. Empire on Fox and Madam Secretary on CBS will also air the final seasons in the 2019-2020 period. The list of canceled shows includes Abby’s, The Enemy Within, The Village, Silicon Valley, Madam Secretary. Canceled TV shows 2019
Abby’s, The Enemy Within, and The Village Cancelled At NBC
Michael Schur’s one-of-a-kind comedy, Abby’s starring Natalie Morales, will not get a Season 2 at NBC. Being the first TV-comedy to take its live studio audience outdoors – and to feature a bisexual, Cuban lead since well, ever- Abby’s was a long-run hopeful. Additionally, fans had expected NBC to put up a Michael Schur project for special consideration. But, it turns out, ratings matter more. The multicamera comedy was averaging 1.7 million total live viewers and a 0.42 in the key 18-49 demographic across its run so far. And that clearly wasn’t sufficient to keep the back-yard bar running. Abby’s The Village The Enemy Within Silicon Valley Cancelled
The Village, a show that tried to be another This Is Us for NBC, was also canceled by NBC. Neighbors in a New York building were bonding too deeply- helping each other through relationship struggles, cancer diagnoses and returns from war. It was clearly too much for NBC to digest, so it pushed the red button. And yes, “The Village” averaged a 0.66 rating and 4.1 million total viewers across its 10-episode run. Which was obviously just too low to keep the show running. Abby’s The Village The Enemy Within Silicon Valley Cancelled
The Village was yet another Universal Pictures presentation. It starred Michaela McManus, Grace Van Dien, Daren Kagasoff, Dominic Chianese, Moran Atias, Jerod Haynes, Warren Christine, Frankie Faison, and Lorraine Toussaint among others. Canceled TV shows 2019
NBC also pulled the curtains on its character-centric psychological thriller, The Enemy Within. BI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut) had enlisted notorious traitor and former CIA operative Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter) to track down an elusive criminal. While divided ambitions drove Keaton and Shepherd out on a mission, their paths converged as they had nowhere else to turn. This Universal Television show averaged a 0.74 rating and 4.4 million total live viewers. Hence, making it the most painful cancellation by NBC. The Enemy Within also included Raza Jaffrey, Kelli Garner, Cassandra Freeman and Noah Mills in its cast.
Silicon Valley To End After Season 6 On HBO
After Veep and Game Of Thrones, HBO will clean its Sunday-night slate off its Emmy-winning tech-comedy, Silicon Valley. Silicon Valley’s final Season 6 will air on HBO later this year. The final season will contain only seven episodes, making the abbreviated bracket the shortest of its kind. Silicon Valley showrunners, Mike Judge and Alec Berg are helming two new comedies for the network, while Berg is already steering the Barry ship on HBO. The Pied Piper gang’s journey has always guided the narrative. Since there is not much left to explore now, Season 6 will offer a fitting conclusion to the show.

Madam Secretary Cancelled At CBS
After its mass slaughter of brilliant TV comedies, CBS targets its long-running political thriller with its axe. Although the network had announced a renewal for Madam Secretary during its Upfront, it later announced that the renewed season will be the last for the show. CBS president Kelly Kahl wants to send Madam Secretary off with respect and celebration. And for this reason, the political drama will not see a season 7. Madam Secretary Season 6 will chronicle Elizabeth’s experiences as a candidate in a political primary and presidential election. Madam Secretary wrapped Season 5 on April 21 with a 0.4 rating and 4.8 million total viewers. Which was indeed the second-smallest score for the series ever.
