Easy Money: Cancelled CW Show Returning with Final Episodes

Easy MoneyLast week, the CW network began airing the final four episodes of Valentine. Though few people watched the show during its original run (and even fewer are watching now), it’s nice that fans of the show can finally get to see the remaining installments. Now, Valentine’s sister show, Easy Money is coming back as well.

As you may recall, Easy Money revolves around a dysfunctional family that runs a small-time check-cashing and loan shark operation. The show features the talents of actors like Laurie Metcalf, Jeff Hephner, Jay R. Ferguson, Joe Peracchio, Katie Lowes, Nick Searcy, Kimberly Estrada, Marsha Thomason, Ravi Patel, Chris Browning, Jesus Mayorga, Gary Farmer, and Judge Reinhold.

Like Valentine, Easy Money was part of Media Rights Capital’s deal to rent the CW network’s Sunday night schedule. The ratings were terrible for the programming and the deal eventually fell apart.

Are you glad Easy Money is returning?

Production of Easy Money was shut down after eight episodes and only four were shown last Fall. Considering how events between the two companies unfolded, it looked highly improbable that the show would resurface on the CW.

But now, the network has quietly scheduled the final four installments of Easy Money to begin running later month. They’ll air on Sunday nights at 7pm beginning July 26th, once Valentine has completed its run.

Whether the series will get some closure in the final episodes of Easy Money remains to be seen.

Will Morgan (Hephner) learn the details about his adoption or can Bobette (Metcalf) continue to keep the truth from him? Will he come clean to Julia (Thomason) about the nature of his family’s business? Will anyone tune in to find out?

    CW was right to cancel Easy Money–and I loved the show. But the audience for such a show is watching USA Network, TNT, AMC–cable channels like that. And it’s not like Easy Money is super expensive to produce.

    Easy Money is a great show–with a fabulous cast–especially Laurie Metcalf. Too bad that it was scheduled on an unpopular network and not promoted sufficiently. Of course the viewership was low–who knew when it was airing?

    It was a great show, there was no way a show as well written as “Easy Money,” would make it on the “fluff” network, alongside “Gossip Girl” and 90210 clones.

    I happen to like Easy Money and I am glad that it is returning. I hope a cable network will pick it up for a second season.

    ‘Tis sad that all the CW has to air are dead eps of a dead show that was a complete FLOP in its regular broadcast life. Shoot, they’d have a bigger viewership if they aired old CONELRAD tests. Guess their management is intent upon running that netlet into the ground & folding it.
