Breaking In: Cancelled (Again); No Season Three

Breaking In cancelled season threeThere won’t be a last minute season three reprieve for Breaking In. After 20 episodes, the FOX sitcom has been cancelled for good this time.

Breaking In revolves around a crack team of security experts who will do just about anything to bug one another, get a job or keep a client. It stars Christian Slater, Megan Mullally, Alphonso McAuley, Bret Harrison and Erin Richards.

The sitcom debuted mid-season 2010-11 and did moderately well in its limited first season run. FOX cancelled it but then went on to make a new deal for a season two. While a lot of fans expressed excitement over the series resurrection, few seemed to care when the show returned this past March.

Breaking In returned to a disappointing 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.60 million total viewers. It was in third place in its timeslot and lost a lot of viewers from its New Girl lead-in.

Subsequent episodes had even worse ratings and FOX pulled the show after five weeks on the air.

On our FOX Ratings Report Card, which tracks the relative performance of the network’s shows, Breaking In registered a “D-” grade. It’s the second-lowest rated scripted show on the network, beating only Fringe.

FOX has eight unaired episodes of Breaking In remaining. The network may decide to run them over the summer but hasn’t announced any specific plans to do so.

What do you think? Are you sorry to see the show cancelled? Did you like season one more than season two?

    What a stupid question. I do not allow it! Can’t believe the show is cancelled. 13th and last episode was the best ever!

    Season 1 was so good, the cast seem to have really good chemistry and the humour was hilarious. Apparently the shows ratings started to slip further and further during season 2 and I think we all know why that is…Megan Mullaly! Why add her to the cast? Whenever she was on screen she just annoyed me and I wanted the camera to move onto someone else. Molly the English girl was alright, but to throw Mullaly into the cast was what destroyed the show. Season 1 will always live on!
