Gary Unmarried: TV Show Cancelled, No Season Three

Gary UnmarriedAfter two seasons on the air, CBS has pulled the plug on their Wednesday night sitcom, Gary Unmarried. The TV show won’t be back in the fall for season three.

Gary Unmarried revolves around a newly-divorced house-painter and dad, Gary Brooks (Jay Mohr), who’s readjusting to the single life. Others in the cast include Paula Marshall, Ryan Malgarini, Kathryn Newton, Keegan-Michael Key, and Brooke D’Orsay.

The sitcom debuted in September of 2008 to a mediocre 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.84 million viewers. The first season’s 20 episodes ended up averaging a 2.2 in the demo and 7.06 million viewers.

Those numbers put Gary Unmarried on the bubble for renewal. It ultimately escaped cancellation, likely because CBS co-produces the sitcom and decided to keep trying to make the Wednesday night comedy block work.

This season, the show’s ratings didn’t improve, averaging a 2.2 in the demo and 6.8 million viewers.

That wasn’t good enough to earn a renewal this time around and CBS has cancelled the series after 37 episodes. The network has also canned The New Adventures of Old Christine and Accidentally on Purpose.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Gary Unmarried’s been cancelled, that there won’t be a third season?

    My kids and I never missed this show, the only one we watched every episode of and loved. We couldn’t believe it when it didn’t come back. It was one of the funniest shows airing at the time, if not the funniest. This show shouldn’t have ever left and really should be brought back (even this late).
