Aliens in America: CW Cancels Low-rated Sitcom

Aliens in AmericaTo very little surprise, CW has cancelled their critically-lauded but viewer-ignored sitcom, Aliens in America.

The series premiered on October 1, 2007 and focuses on geeky Justin Tolchuk (Dan Byrd), Muslim exchange student Raja Musharaff (Adhir Kalyan), and Justin’s Wisconsin family. Aliens in America’s first 10 episodes aired on Monday nights and averaged an audience of two million. CW moved Aliens to Sunday nights and the ratings have dropped to as low as 810,000.

Coupled with the low ratings, cancellation rumors have recently been circulating because some of the show’s castmembers have been taking on other work. Kalyan has been signed on to a recurring but important role on FX’s Nip/Tuck. He’ll play a 16-year-old prodigy plastic surgeon. Scott Patterson, who plays Justin’s father, was reportedly also available for other projects.

Aliens’ season was cut short by the writers strike but, unlike other series (Bionic Woman, for example), they had shot most of their episodes prior to the shutdown. The sitcom’s first and only season is made up of 18 episodes and it looks like CW will air all of them. The series finale is scheduled to air on May 18, 2008. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

I WANT MORE!!! It’s really rare to see a witty, truly original sitcom!!! It may not get the attention it deserves in the US, but its a real blast in Europe!!! You made a real mistake by cancelling the show!
