Made in Jersey: Cancelled, Dropped After Two Episodes

Made in Jersey TV show cancelledIt looks like we have the first cancellation of the season. CBS is pulling Made in Jersey from the schedule effective immediately, after airing just two episodes.

Made in Jersey follows a young lawyer (Janet Montgomery) from New Jersey who uses her street smarts to make waves at an upscale New York law firm. The show also features the talents of Kyle MacLachlan, Felix Solis, Stephanie March, Toni Trucks, Donna Murphy, Erin Cummings, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Drew Beasley, and Alexandra Socha.

The first episode drew a disappointing 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.82 million viewers, lower numbers than last season’s A Gifted Man ever hit. Last Friday’s installment dropped 27% in the demo to a 0.8 rating with 6.78 million.

TV show supportThese terrible numbers have prompted the network to pull Made in Jersey from the schedule. CSI: NY will fill its timeslot effective immediately. For the next three weeks, CBS will air NCIS and Hawaii Five-0 reruns at 8pm. Then, on November 2nd, the fourth season of Undercover Boss will take over.

There’s no word on when or if CBS will run the remaining episodes of Made in Jersey. The network’s previous ratings disappointment, the 3 reality series, was also pulled after two episodes and the network released the remaining episodes online.

Here’s the press release from CBS that highlights the schedule changes:

I loved Made in Jersey. It did not have a chance since it got vcry little commercials telling the viewers about the show to begin with. It was very funny.

I agree with one of the posters that the word “Jersey” didn’t do much for the show. People did associate it with Snookie. I also felt the accents were so strong, and I think the cast weren’t that interesting (except for Kyle McLaughlin and also the mother, whom I adore). I also felt it kind of far-fetched. A new lawyer breaking all these cases with aplomb. I like to suspend my belief somewhat, but not so much with law shows which I expect to be intelligent and true to life. I would still have continued to watch it, but online, as I wouldn’t skip my other shows for it. BTW, does anyone think the star lead, Janet Montgomery, reminds them of the lead star from Crossing Jordan? (Can’t remember the actress’ name who played Jordan). She even sounds like her. Too close for my comfort. lol

I liked it. It had potential. That being said, the first thing I told my Hubby when I saw it was being run up against Fringe and Grimm… “Why did they bother filming a single episode?” Even WB figured out that this timesslot is for supernatural shows with their new take on Beauty and the Beast. I think the show had some quirks to work out, however the show could have gone somewhere had they been given a better night and timeslot. The only good news of this show going away is that with it, and later Fringe being taken off the market that block of time is wide open for straight up cable viewing.

the actress mumbled her lines to much. she stressed the jersey accent so much that if that were her real accent that it seemed fake or as if she were mocking the accent. I wasnt fully invested in the charcter like i am usually am after two or three episodes of a CBS drama. friday just isnt a good spot for a new show that hasnt developed a fan base yet. it makes me wonder is CBS really had any faith in it in the first place.

I’m telling you guys it was the title that killed this show. I couldn’t even read it without thinking “Jersey Shore” which sent me running the other direction. They should have titled it “Made in the Bronx” or something else.

Face it, anything with “Jersey” in the title right now is going to make people think of Snooky and the other idiot greaseballs. It’s the third rail of TV.

Not surprising. It wasn’t a good show and I wouldn’t even have watched it if it was on another night.

I was watching it the whole time, they were wide open, you should have seen them. It was a great show, I hope your new favorite show gets axed that I hate so I can s**t on it.

Well heck, I thought I was actually going to get to watch CSI:NY this season. Caught the last season in repeats over the summer due to CSI:NY being in the Friday 9pm death slot also occupied by Supernatural, Grimm, and Fringe — and there was no way I was missing any of those shows! Now I suppose I’ll have to hope they show CSI:NY over the summer again, since Nikita is coming back in the 9pm slot and there’s no way I’m giving up Fringe, Grimm, or Nikita. Geez, CBS, give me a break already.

F**K you cbs, you suck so f**king much. Absolute bulls**t, they had absolutely no confidence in this show at all. They even put it on another night or at least put it on hiatus? Why the hell did they put it on Friday nights? It makes no sense, especially after a gifted man last fall. They never really cared about the show at all. It’s amazing: 2 Broke girls, excellent show, great ratings, Made in Jersey, excellent show, horrible ratings, I don’t get why more people didn’t catch on. WTFE, I watched it many times on cbs.com, I bought the season pass on Amazon and signed the petition, even if a million other people did the same, it probably wouldn’t have made a difference. CBS made their decision, and it was a horrible one.
