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?

    Please bring back the show “Against the Wall.” There are too many stupid reality shows on TV these days, and we need more shows that have substance. “Against the Wall,” not only has good writing with interesting story lines, it also has some super acting. Those of us who are fans of the show certainly wanted to see which guy Abby was going to pick.

    Bring back the show….seriously!!!!! We need to know who she picked…my vote is for Brody. Reality TV has put a big damper on good television shows. Sorry actors you might soon be out numbered by the Snookies and Situations of the world.

    I also liked this show. I don’t watch much tv so I am very disappointed to lose a show that was good. Hope you reconsider or at least do an ending
    one time show. Don’t leave
    us hanging without an ending. I also don’t enjoy your reality show there is too many of them
