Allen Gregory: Officially Cancelled, No Season Two

Allen Gregory canceled season twoAllen Gregory may have a grandiose opinion of himself but his animated series just couldn’t cut it. The low-rated TV series has been officially cancelled.

At the FOX portion of the TCA Winter Press Tour, FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly confirmed what we’d long suspected. He said simply, “We will not be making any more Allen Gregory.” The network will however continue to work with the show’s star and co-creator, Jonah Hill, noting that he already has a live-action comedy in the works with the network.

Featuring the voices of Hill, French Stewart, Nat Faxon, Joy Osmanski, Christina Puccelli, Jake Johnson and Renee Taylor, Allen Gregory debuted at the end of October to soft ratings. Viewership dropped as the weeks progressed and the animated sitcom quickly became one of the lowest-rated scripted series on FOX.

The network had initially ordered just seven installments and, even though episodes of animated shows require more lead time to produce, they made no indication that they were planning to order any more.

The last episode of Allen Gregory aired on December 18th, surrounded by repeats of other FOX shows, and hit a new series low in the ratings.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Allen Gregory won’t be back for a second season? Did the creative team go too far with the show or not far enough?

Good riddance. The character was arrogant and selfish, not to mention totally unrelatable. Bob’s Burgers fits much better into the lineup and has a stellar cast of voice talent, most notably H. Jon Benjamin.

I hated the pilot for this show, but liked all of the episodes after that. My partner and I were just talking the other day about how we haven’t seen the show lately. It’s a bummer to find out that it has been cancelled. I hope that they do renew it.

I was iffy about Allen Gregory. I didn’t hate it but I wasn’t in love. Obviously because I didn’t it’d been cancelled until right now. I was looking for it on OnDemand a few days ago and couldn’t find so I moved on w/ my life and just remembered this morning so I went to Fox.com to watch any I’d missed and it wasn’t there either. The only reason I googled it is because I’m a curious little kitten. But I’ll live with the fact that it’s cancelled. DON’T CANCEL BOB’S BURGERS! I love that show. The youngest daughter brightens all of my boring, annoying nights at work. :)
