Cancellation Buzz: 'The Deep End' Dropped by ABC - Featured

The Deep End was a day late from becoming the first new show of 2010 to be cancelled. Instead, that honor went to Fox's Past Life, which bit the proverbial bullet due to low ratings. A similar fate has afflicted ABC's attempt at Grey's Anatomy with lawyers.

The series began on January 21 with only 7 million viewers; not a strong debut by any stretch of the imagination. It didn't quite lose viewers as quickly as Past Life did, and only dropped a million with its second episode. By episode three, the series had dropped another million viewers, and things just weren't looking good for a second season, or even a full first season, despite a slight gain in viewers for the first episode. Episode five's drop to an embarassing 4.26 million sealed The Deep End's fate, and ABC quickly cancelled the series, which had steadily been named the fourth most watched series in its Thursday timeslot.

It was a good show for those who watched it. Maybe they didnt promote it enough, I only knew about the show through Certainly didnt see it as an ad on tv.

NOOOOO! My new favorite thing. How could they do this to me!? (self involved much?)No no no. This was so good. Who would do this?WHY? I hate cancellations.I still haven't gotten over Dollhouse being cancelled (to be honest I am also still pissed that someone cancelled Firefly and Arrested Development)
I wanna hit someone. This was good.
(By the by - also missing Joan of Arcadia - and My So-Called Life. And a lot more shows that I can't remember right now.)
Goodbye my loves. I'll treasure you still.

I loved this show too...I cannot believe it was cancelled. They definitely did not promote it enough. ABC sucks for cancelling it.
