“Mayor” Pulled, “Sheldon” Returns & “Girls” Done

ABC has essentially cancelled freshman comedy “The Mayor,” pulling the series from its timeslot and replacing it with reruns of “Modern Family” just days before its scheduled return on Tuesday.

Nine episodes of the ABC Studios-produced comedy had already aired this season with only thirteen ultimately produced. The series averaged a 0.8 Live+Same Day rating and 2.9 million total viewers this past Fall.

ABC had not moved to extend the show’s order and the network has no plans to broadcast the remaining four episodes of the first season. A formal decision on a second season has not yet been made.

Additionally, CBS has renewed “Young Sheldon,” its “The Big Bang Theory” prequel spin-off series, for a second season. This marks the network’s first official renewal for next season.

‘Sheldon’ is the No. 1 new comedy in viewers and the No. 2 comedy in all of television, behind only its predecessor. The mid-season premiere earlier this week scored a 2.6 rating and 14.7 million viewers overall – up 30% on its winter finale numbers.

Finally, “Good Girls Revolt” creator Dana Calvo has confirmed that attempts to bring back the feminist period drama that was cancelled by Amazon a year ago are now over. No deal has been reached which means the show is officially dead.
