Tom and Jessie have their share of challenges as 18-year-old newlyweds. Unfortunately, their 18 to Life TV show has bigger problems. It’s been cancelled.
18 to Life revolves around a pair of best friends who end up getting married at an early age, much to the dismay of the very different parents. The series features Michael Seater, Stacey Farber, Alain Goulem, Angela Asher, Jesse Rath, Kaniehtiio Horn, Arielle Shiri, Peter Keleghan, Ellen David, Erin Agostino, Carl Alacchi, Samantha Moore, and Raphael Cohen-Demers.
An import from Canada, 18 to Life debuted on August 3rd to just a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and only 988,000 viewers. The second episode dropped to a 0.3 rating and 846,000 total viewers. That put the pair of episodes in last place in both categories. Later episodes attracted even fewer viewers.
After Tuesday’s episodes, The CW has decided to pull the show from the schedule. That leaves six episodes on the shelf. They’ll be replaced by repeats of Life Unexpected. New episodes of that drama will debut in the same timeslot on September 14th.
Though 18 to Life may be finished on The CW, the comedy has already been renewed for a second season in Canada. The CBC finished airing season one in April and production of season two is currently underway.
Hopefully fans in the States will be able to buy the show on DVD or the show will be picked up by a cable station.
