Black Box: Has the ABC TV Show Been Cancelled?

Black Box TV show canceled or season two?ABC recently cancelled several shows (Mixology, Suburgatory, Betrayal, etc.) and renewed many others (Resurrection, Revenge, The Goldbergs, etc.). What about the new Black Box series that airs on Thursday nights?

The show revolves around a beautiful and brilliant neuroscientist (Kelly Reilly) who’s hiding the fact that she’s bipolar. The rest of the cast includes Ditch Davey, David Ajala, Terry Kinney, Ali Wong, David Chisum, Laura Fraser, Siobhan Williams, and Vanessa Redgrave.

The show debuted on April 24th to a poor 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.87 million viewers. The ratings have gotten even worse as the weeks have progressed. This week’s installment hit a new low with a 1.1 rating and 4.31 million.

While ABC hasn’t cancelled Black Box, they surely will. The ratings have just been too low to be renewed for a second season.

The question now is, “Will all of the episodes air?” There are nine episodes remaining. If the ratings keep going down, the network could easily pull the show and replace it with reruns. Hopefully they’ll either air or release them so the show’s small audience can see them.

What do you think? Do you think that Black Box should be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Do you think ABC should air all of the episodes they have?

I have thoroughly enjoyed this show from the very first episode. I have read some of the reviews and was surprised at how much people have hated everything about it. I’m usually not that far off when predicting a new show’s staying power so I was amazed that I had enjoyed Black Box as much as I do and so many don’t.

I enjoyed the show….quite different from ordinary medical shows. I also liked the actors. The least ABC could do is air the other nine shows if they are going to cancel.

I love this show. I just recently started watching it. I like that you get to see the personal lives of the characters. Also, the neuro. field is fascinating.

This show is fantastic! Gives everyone an opportunity to learn more about bipolar disease. Educated people more about this condition. As for the Goldbergs! Really? Black Box is brilliant! Keep Black Box! Cancel Goldbergs!

In my opinion, you can do away with The Goldbergs and keep Black Box…
