Growing Up Fisher: NBC Sitcom Cancelled After One Season

Growing Up Fisher canceledNBC has decided to cancel their struggling comedy Growing Up Fisher after a single season of 13 episodes. While there won’t be a second season, there are still two new episodes to come.

Growing Up Fisher follows an unorthodox family that becomes closer after the parents divorce. The cast includes Elfman, J. K. Simmons, Eli Baker, Ava Deluca-Verley, and Lance Lim. Jason Bateman is the show’s narrator.

The sitcom started off with okay ratings — at least when compared to NBC’s other comedies. They dropped over the course of the season however and hit a new series low this week with a 1.2 demo rating and 5.05 million total viewers. That surely didn’t help this show’s chances.

There are two unaired episodes remaining and NBC has announced that they will air in a one-hour block on Wednesday, May 28th.

What do you think? Did you like this sitcom? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled it or renewed Growing Up Fisher for season two?

We have been waiting for season 2 to start. This was one of the few shows we could watch as a family and we thought it was a great show. We always watched it on demand when we had time but we couldn’t wait for a new episode ! Please bring this show back!

My family was so looking forward to the 2nd season! So disappointed that it got cancelled! Please bring them all back, the actors were fabulous and the real life situations were well played out. This show needs to come back! We loved it!!!!

I am soooo disappointed “Growing Up Fisher” is being cancelled. It was entertaining and just a feel good, clean sitcom! NBC – please bring it back!

So, so, so sad! One of the few shows my teenage daughter and I enjoyed together. Clean, funny, and so smart. Great characters and very well written.

I’m so disappointed ! My family and I loved this show. I can’t believe it’s been cancelled. We couldn’t wait for it to come on each week and would watch it again, on demand. NBC has made a big, big mistake. I hope you reconsider. I never even thought about this being canceled. Was looking so forward to watching again season 2 in October. I was checking to find out the aire date when I saw it has been cancelled. The writers should look for another network . Good clean family shows are desperately needed. There are too many smut shows on now. Shame on NBC.

We LOVED this show. It was clever, fun and non violent. It did not insult your intelligence. There are to few top rate shows like this. You have to many violent, reality and totally ridiculous shows on. There are millions of families and other people that enjoy funny good shows that are family friendly. I know this is way to late but please bring back this show for those of us who have values about why we watch and balance out the viewing field.

This is an awesome show!! I am so disappointed in the network for cancelling!! It was so well written and acted. There are so very few options on TV for quality funny family entertainment and this was one of them. In spite of starting late, and its time slot being messed with, we sought it out – the issue was not with the show but with how NBC marketed it. Unfortunately there are no decent shows remaining on NBC that fit family friendly.

What a shame–I don’t watch TV and this show hit me hooked–

I cannot believe this fabulous, interesting across the board, fun and funny show is over.

This is one of the funniest shows since “Big Bang”. Please give it one more season to prove itself!!!

Great cast, great characters, great situation, what more do you want?

The only show I watched on NBC. I was looking to see when season 2 would start when I discovered the show was cancelled. A smartly written comedy, it was the only sitcom I’ve laughed at since Frasier. Your problem was marketing, not the show. What a bone-headed decision to cancel it.

This was a great show! Funny, witty, family oriented. Better than most junk on TV. Of course when you air it late, change it’s airing time every few weeks people will not watch it. I hate TV now, just reality crap and Keeping up with overly rich people, who are only famous because we have nothing else to watch.
