Kirstie: TV Land Sitcom Cancelled; No Season Two

Kirstie TV show on TV Land canceled, no season 2It’s one and done for Kirstie on TV Land reports Deadline. The cable channel has decided to cancel the Kirstie Alley vehicle after one season of 12 episodes.

Kirstie revolves around Tony-winning diva Madison Banks (Alley) who’s enjoyed years of unbridled hedonism, drinking, and sleeping her way up and down Broadway. Her life takes a surprising turn when she meets up with Arlo Barth (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up for adoption 26 years earlier. With the help and encouragement of her long-suffering assistant and best friend Thelma Katz (Rhea Pearlman) and her eccentric chauffeur Frank Baxter (Michael Richards), Maddie realizes that Arlo is a diamond in the rough and invites him to move into her swanky New York City apartment.

Despite touting a trio of veterans from legendary sitcoms — two from Cheers and one from Seinfeld — the series was neither a critical nor a ratings success. Possibly also playing into the decision to cancel was the fact that showrunner Marco Pennette had to leave at the end of the season for personal reasons and another would have had to be found to renew the series.

What do you think? Did you like the Kirstie sitcom? Should it have been cancelled or renewed for a second season instead?

I AM GLAD TV LAND CANCELLED KRISTIE. I DID NOT LIKE THE STUPID SHOW NOR DID I WATCH THE STUPID SHOW. I DO NOT CARE FOR KRISTIE ALLEY, BUT HEY, LET’S BE HONEST, HER SHOW WAS LOW RATED AND I DO NOT THINK THIS STUPID SHOW SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE FIRST PLACE!

I hate that all the good shows are cancelled. … this show was funny.. fresh and of course once a good thing comes along its trashed… I’m sick of the reality stuff.. I live in a healthy dose of reality. .. it was nice to watch a show that wasn’t a mystery or competition. . Just good ole relaxing.. laughter provoking tv show. Id love to see this brought back… c’mon guys.. leave the good stuff alone.. put Kirstie back n your line up!

I am very disappointed the Kristie Show got cancelled I thought it was such a funny and great show. Expecially since her Cheers coworker was in it with her. And the guy who played Kramer from Seinfeld was in it.

I find it difficult to separate actor from character. In real life, Kirstie Alley is an insufferable loudmouth Scientologist. Why watch that on tv?

Given the cast I believe the show deserved a slight revamp and a second season to see if could be successful. It was humorous.

I didn’t see that much of the show, but what I did see didn’t impress me. Plus, her character was not very likeable. And when I didn’t really hear anything else about it, I figured it was gone.

How bad must the writing and directing have been for a show with Richards and Pearlman to not be a success?

I agree CK!

I don’t think the writing for the Kristy Alley show was stupid. I thought the whole show was good. And it wasn’t bad at all.

What do you mean? what did I mean to write ? I meant to write what you saw cause a guy on here said. She is self centered and arrogant and I do not think she is self centered and arrogant. I want the show to be renewed and to be continued on the tv. I do not want the show to be cancelled. I love the show and thought it was so funny and haleriuos.
