Good Vibes: MTV Series Cancelled, No Season Two

good vibes canceled no season twoMTV has decided to cancel Good Vibes, ruling out the possibility of a second season. Created by David Gordon Green, the animated series ran for 12 episodes on MTV, from October until December 2011.

The show was paired with Beavis and Butt-Head and attracted more of a female audience than the Mike Judge series. According to Deadline, there were discussions between the cable channel and the Good Vibes producers about possible ways to keep the show on the air. Though MTV execs liked the direction of Good Vibes, the show ultimately wasn’t attracting enough viewers to justify a second season.

The series premiered opposite the sixth game of the World Series and attracted a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.6 million total viewrs. That was about about half as many viewers as lead-in Beavis and Butt-Head brought in. The season (now series) finale drew just a 0.2 demo rating and 490,000 viewers.

In some ways, it was a small miracle that Good Vibes ever became a series in the first place. It was initially developed at Warner Bros. TV and FOX ordered a pilot in 2008 with Adam Brody, Alan Tudyk, Danny McBride, Debi Mazar, Jake Busey, Josh Gad and Olivia Thirlby providing the voices. FOX passed on the pilot but the producers kept working on finding the project a home. They did in 2010 and were able to keep the voice cast intact for the MTV run.

The fate of Beavis and Butt-Head, which finished its latest season on December 29th, is still up in the air.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Good Vibes has been cancelled? Did you like the animated series?

good vibes gave me that old feeling that mtv used to have. i loved being able to watch good vibes following a new episode of beavis and butthead. i really thought MTV was makeing the right direction back towards their roots but because they know that more people would watch women getting into cat fights (jersey shore) then airing good tv shows like good vibes which is fun to watch would get them more views because it has more shock value to the audience. now im not watching MTV just like before good vibes and (new) beavis and butthead. i hope in the future they will realize its not about rateings and its more about pleasing the fans. you disappoint me MTV.

It should be the other way around. Beavis and butt head cancelled and good vibes renewed. I’m depressed. :'(

Why would anyone hate this show. It caught my attention within the first five minutes. I am so pissed. i Just found this out. God i hate tv people sometimes. Like why keep a good show down and play stupid shows like akward teen wolf other gay ass shows. i hate to say it but id rather have this bk than jersey shore even though i luv the jersey shore series alot. I hope someone makes more of the T.V. show. ;_;
