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?

it’s a shame the general public who watches TV didn’t find the entertainment of this show worthy to keep it going. It was funny, REAL, and actually a show most families could watch TOGETHER…go figure. It was a great motivator to our visually impaired students and an eye opener to their peers.

No, the big networks continue to cancel good tv and replace it with more, very over played, American star search stuff. Understand it is a profit thing but basically I no longer watch the big four anymore. Moved to cables stations.

These shows don’t follow the normal model
