Cancellation Buzz: Fox Pulls Sons of Tucson

From THR:


Fox is pulling struggling Sunday night comedy Sons of Tucson.


The network is yanking the show from the schedule for the rest of the season. In the summer, Fox will air the remaining episodes of the freshman live action comedy on Sundays at 7:30 p.m., the same burn-off spot it used for "Brothers" earlier this season. "American Dad" will move back to its 9:30 p.m. home.


The network also confirmed the cancellation of 'Til Death, which will run at 7 p.m. on Sundays though a series finale in June.


Rumor of "Til Death" being canceled leaked weeks ago, but this is one show that you need to see its corpse to believe it's dead. "Til Death" has long been a zombie on the network, filling time periods with bottom-rated episodes and garnering critical scorn.

That's a shame. Tyler Lebane is really funny and the show aint half bad. Better than Ugly Betty, Lost, 90210 and all the other hyped up shows.

*sigh* I kinda expected that. It really is a shame, it already got me hooked up. I do even like the 2nd oldest boy now who was annoying the hell out of me at the beginning.

boo. this was a good show. if it was on hbo or showtime we'd get to have it for seasons on end. Prime TV is really dumbing it down.

I agree tyler lebane was growing on me, along with the three sons. If figures they would cancel it though, people who watch Ugly betty, Lost and 90210 would not like an actually funny show like Son of Tucson.

Stereotyped thinking is never good. ;) I love Lost and I really enjoyed this show as well.
But did something change in the plan to show the rest of the episodes in summer, since in my watchlist the airdate of the 5th episode is December 11th?
