Class dismissed. It didn’t take CBS long to decide on the fate of Bad Teacher. The new sitcom has been cancelled by the network.
On Bad Teacher, a former trophy wife (Ari Graynor) masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man to marry. The rest of the cast includes Kristin Davis, David Alan Grier, Sara Gilbert, Ryan Hansen, and Sara Rodier.
The series got off to a decent start late last month but the ratings have fallen in the two subsequent weeks. The most recent episode drew a lowly 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.73 million viewers. That’s much too low to garner a second season renewal.
It’s unclear at this point if all of the remaining episodes will air. The network ordered 13 installments, has aired three, and still has three more on the schedule. Hopefully, for those who like the show, CBS will keep it on the air long enough for all of the episodes to be shown.
What do you think? Did you like Bad Teacher? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second season instead?
