Buried Treasure: Won’t Be Back For Season Two

canceled buried treasure Tv show, no season 2It looks like the Keno brothers are done finding “buried treasure,” at least on FOX anyway. The network has dropped the short-lived non-scripted series after one season. Buried Treasure ran for four episodes last summer, from August 24th until September 14th.

The TV series follows two professional appraisers, Leigh and Leslie Keno, as they travel to people’s houses to inspect potentially rare and unusual items. The participants are often in need of cash and so episodes share their emotional journies as items are brought to auction and sold.

The Keno brothers are well known from their work on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow series.

Unfortunately, the non-scripted show certainly wasn’t a secret gold mine for the network. The premiere attracted a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.67 million total viewers. It was in fourth place in its timeslot, beaten by a sitcom repeat and other reality fare. The final episode hit a low with a 0.8 rating and 2.80 million.

Over the four weeks, the show averaged just a 1.0 rating with 3.51 million viewers. The network chose not to bring the series back for a second season this summer or for the 2012-13 schedule.

What do you think? Did you enjoy watching Buried Treasure? Would you liked to have seen it come back for a second season?

I just discovered this show last night on CNBC and absolutely LOVED it. Am so disappointed it is cancelled. I think it would do very well given a better shot. Bring it back!

It’s a shame that Buried Treasure was cancelled!! It was a great show and I loved all the episodes. Please bring back this show!!! It may have taken a little while to catch on, but it is indeed a winner that deserves a second chance.

Best regards,

I love this show and can not believe it will be canceled it was poorly advertised I will boycott fox until they decide to bring it back it makes no sense that a show like the Mindy project or New girl or raising Hope will be on but put on a decent show that is helpful entertaining and interesting and they cut it shame on you fox please Keno brothers go to another station

I loved it! Too bad it wasn’t well advertised. Would have loved to see it continue.
It comes in on CNBC here, so I don’t often find it.

Loved it! Maybe they should try it again and do better promos this time around. I know LOTS of people who would watch it religiously!
