Hello Ladies: Cancelled; No Season Two But…

hello ladies canceled on HBOWhile HBO has cancelled Hello Ladies, that won’t be the end of the line for the characters. The cable channel plans to wrap up the TV series with a special. There’s no word on when it will air just yet.

Based on Stephen Merchant’s stand-up act, Hello Ladies revoles around Stuart Pritchard (Merchant) and his search for love in Los Angeles. The rest of the cast includes Christine Woods, Nate Torrence, Kevin Weisman, and Kyle Mooney.

The first season ran for eight episodes, from September until November of 2013. The premiere drew 522,000 viewers and subsequent installments drew fewer.

What do you think? Did you like Hello Ladies? Are you sorry there won’t be a second season? How would you like to see Stuart’s story end?

This is an incredibly funny show. Like the Office it starts slow and them the characters just start to get into your head. I’ve watched the first series twice. It was even better second time. Change your minds HBO, take a chance it wont miss.

This is the bets show on TV. I looked forward to it every week. This is so surprising and sad. Bring it back. Give it another chance and put some good marketing dollars behind it.

american audiences are dull and dim-witted. people in this country do not appreciate good, intelligent, high brow comedy. just look at the shows on any network and their respective popularity, it is 90 percent garbage, and this says a lot about the masses. the english have such a better since of humour. i love the self deprecating jokes and the dry wit. hbo probably wasnt the best network for this show, but stephen and ricky have good connections with them. the ricky gervais show was the funniest show on hbo–possibly better than da ali g show and mr. show with bob and david. having said this i hope hbo doesnt give up on stephen merchant for any future productions, but he works much better with ricky and of course karl pilkington. maybe hbo can get syndication rights for Derek. hbo messed up on this and passed a gem, i honestly believe that this show, once the characters developed more and had more of a direction, it wouldve been a big hit. america needs for witty and intelligent humor and it angers me that these reality tv shows and american idol type shows dominate prime-time. i wish i could move to the uk. america has become too dumbed down and makes me sick, and it scares and upsets me that said people are the ones breeding out of control. first it starts off with lack of taste and a sense of humor, low literacy rates, and the brain-washing of american tv garbage, before you know it the economy will collapse. i know this seems like a huge leap in reasoning, but i am convinced there has to be a correlation between tv programming and education and education and the economy and standards of living. we are witnessing the dumbing down of this country, believe it or not most people still get a lot of information from tv, because most people are very impressionable and need it to tell them what is considered a normal lifestyle and how to live and how to treat women and raise kids. it is sad. this show had real potential and great humor, and no family guy is not funny in the least bit, low-brow slapstick.

This show was totally dismal! Cringe worthy! It was surprising they went with this script from the get-go. The Stuart character was revolting. Nothing endearing about him whatsoever. The writing was on the wall from ep 1 I’m afraid.

WTF…this show was hilarious! Big Mistake HBO! Season 2 will premiere to 1 million viewers!!!!

HBO: Wake up! This show is the best thing you have produced in years. Did you not learn anything from your mistake with Deadwood? Hello Ladies has characters that I care about and want to know more about-rare in any show comedy or drama. It’s not too late. Add it to your line up. Look at all the junk that you’ve given second seasons to: Getting On; Bored to Death; Hung; The Life of Tim; Eastbound and Down; and of course, Girls. There are more, but I grow bored.

I totally agree! What a bummer, people would rather watch a tired family guy?


Miguel March 24, 2014 at 10:10 am

This show is hilarious> I’m so disappointed it didn’t get picked up for another season. Another blunder for HBO just like what they did with “Hung”!
