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?

    I truly enjoyed Growing Up Fisher, it was a cute comedy and better than most shows that are out there, especially some of the reality TV shows.

    This show was one of my top five favorite comedy series! I kept checking hulu wondering when it was going on and just had to do my research as to why it wasn’t on…. This really stinks it was actually REALLY fun to watch! Too bad.. I say it needed more time to get noticed. It would have been noticed for sure, as a great family show. Hulu even took off season 1 :( Great show!

    Loved this show, big fan of J. K. Simmons. Refreshingly funny. Not a typical comedy. So sad they canceled this show. Tired of the same old genre you can find on every network.

    This show was great. It is so hard to find a comedy TVs show now a days that is actually funny. They keep cancelling the good ones. Why?

    This show has great characters and very witty writing. What was the problem? Perhaps because it taught life lessons without using sexual innuendos?

    Loved this show. It was new refreshing and had substance. All the others in past and currently do not. Bring it back. On another network. All members of cast perfect writers. On point.

    I loved this new and refreshing show! It is a great family show to watch. Not a cop or a lawyer or fire or detective show. Just sweetly different. It would have caught on. You really should have stuck with it a little longer. It would have lasted.
