Against the Wall: Cancelled; No Season Two

Against the Wall canceledLifetime has decided that neither of its freshman dramas are worthy of a second season. The cable channel cancelled The Protector in September and they’ve now canned Against the Wall as well.

Against the Wall stars Rachael Carpani as Abby Kowalski, a single cop who joins the Chicago department’s internal affairs division. The series’ co-stars include Andrew Walker, Brandon Quinn, Chris Johnson, Daniel Kash, James Thomas, Kathy Baker, Marisa Ramirez, Mayko Nguyen, Steve Byers, and Treat Williams.

Debuting on July 31st, the show attracted a mediocre 1.8 million viewers with a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic, about on par with The Protector. Unfortunately, the numbers didn’t improve throughout the season. The 12th and 13th episodes (now the show’s last) aired on October 23rd. They each drew 1.4 million viewers and 0.4 demo ratings.

Lifetime recently ordered 10 more episodes of successful (and likely ending) Army Wives and also has Drop Dead Diva to help launch new shows. The cable channel has ordered The Client List, with Jennifer Love Hewitt reprising her role from the successful movie. Lifetime also has a few pilots on tap like Modern Love starring Eric Stoltz, American Housewife with Melanie Griffith, and Sworn To Secrecy, a movie and back-door pilot that stars Neve Campbell.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Against the Wall won’t be back for a second season? Why do you think the drama didn’t catch on?

I really enjoyed watching Against the Wall… I am disappointed that shows like Dance Moms and all that Housewives junk with all that bad, stressful & tasteless arguing about nothing that matters are still on the air. Shows with actual writing and storylines are being dumped for junk TV. I liked Against the Wall, Missing, Pan Am, A Gifted Man and The Firm. What a shame junk is being left on TV and thought to be enjoyable =(

WHY WHY WHY???? I enjoyed Against the wall so much and for Lifetime to cut it loose and keep some of the garbage they think is good, I am not quite sure who is making such decisions, it just baffles my mind?!
I will miss it very much and I also wanted to know who Abby chose, not too mention some other great story lines they had brewing!
BAD BAD BAD Lifetime execs.

THE SHOW AGAINST THE WALL WAS A GREAT SHOW. I WAS WONDERING WHEN IT WAS COMING ON AND FOUND OUT IT WAS CANCELLED. SHAME ON YOU. YOU LEAVE DANCE MOMS ON AND THE OTHER THE OTHER RIDICULOUS TV REALITY SHOWS IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE NBC CANCELLED HARRY’S LAW , ANOTHER GREAT SHOW. SHARK WITH JAMES WOODS WAS ANOTHER GREAT SHOW CANCELLED FROM CBS. YOU ARE TAKING ALL THE GOOD SHOWS OFF THE AIR. I WILL THINK TWICE BEFORE WATCHING THE LIFETIME CHANNEDL, NBC AND CBS IN THE FUTURE.

I really enjoyed Against the Wall. I rarely watch Lifetime and definitely won’t start back after they cancelled this show. It’s always the good ones that go.

I liked Against the Wall…a story about a woman playing a man’s game. I think a lot of us don’t get counted in the ratings of TV shows because we record shows! The stupid shows all stay on…and the good ones get cancelled! Please explain!

Why why why? Lifetime has lost me as a viewer thats for sure! Sure Dance Moms is freaking still on but let’s cancel a great show! Dance Moms is a bunch of piece of crap drama queen brats and their crazy bitch of a dance teacher! it has no value or substance! It’s superficial at best. Against the Wall was fantastic and Lifetime has lost me as a viewer until this is fixed.
