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 truly enjoy this show. I hate reality tv shows, so more shows like this one will hopefully replace all of them. Please don’t cancel Black Box!

    The first episode of this show was about the worst thing I’ve ever seen on TV. Then I found myself checking in just to see how far off the reservation they would get. I forgot about it and about 8 or 9 weeks in, watched again. To my surprise, I found it watchable. The science and medicine are still ludicrously off, but it became a fairly interesting drama, it is now thumbs up from here. Just don’t believe anything you see on the show.

    I love this show it’s like the Female version of House but better. The female lead is beautiful, witty, and a wonderful actress. She does a phenomenal job portraying a dysfunctional bipolar person. This show makes my week. I will be very unhappy if it is not renewed but they always cancel the really good shows that have intelligent creative actors and writers and keep the stupid reality crap.
