In the weeks that followed, the ratings didn’t get any better and more frequently got worse. Last week, Eastwick hit an all-time low of 1.5 in the demo and 4.4 million.

ABC has opted to pull the show from the schedule for two weeks. This Wednesday, it’s replaced by the Country Music Awards. Next week, it’s being bumped for an interview special called In the Spotlight with Robin Roberts: Janet Jackson. Though Eastwick is scheduled to return on Thanksgiving eve with a new episode, the supernatural drama won’t be around for long after that.

TV show supportABC has decided not to order any additional episodes of Eastwick, effectively cancelling the series after 13 episodes. It’s unknown if the last episode will wrap up the ongoing storylines. For now, ABC plans to air all six remaining installments but, if the ratings keep declining, the network could easily pull the series before that happens.

What do you think? Why did Eastwick fail? Do you think ABC will really air all of the 13 episodes?

    zasto mora svaka serija da se zavrsi na prvoj sezoni… jos ni jedna serija koju sam krenula da gledam nije zavrsena do kraja… ne znam zasto odma krece neka druga serija da se pravi kada ni nju nece dovrsiti do kraja… prestacu da gledam serije… svaka serija je zanimljiva na svoj nacin i prosto se razocaram kada kazu da ce je prekinuti a bukvalno jos nisu ni krenuli sa desavanjima… koji djavo prave nove serije…!!

    I’m so sad that they cancelled Eastwick. It had so much potential and great characters.
    I think it was much more exciting and funny than most shows nowadays.
    At least it would have really deserved a better ending…
