Make It or Break It: Cancelled, No Season Four

season four canceled MAKE IT OR BREAK ITIt’s the end of the competition for Make It or Break It. ABC Family has cancelled the TV show after three seasons on the air.

Make It or Break It revolves around top young gymnasts who are training for the Olympics. The series debuted in mid-June 2009 to a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.5 million total viewers. The ratings fell as low as a 0.6 in the demo with 1.9 million but that was still enough for the cable channel to renew it for a second season of 20 episodes.

The ratings got worse in season two but ABC Family still renewed Make It or Break It for a third season. This time however, they only ordered eight episodes. According to network president Michael Riley, it was “in time to ignite Olympic fever.”

If there were a possibility of ABC Family ordering a fourth season, those chances were pretty quickly dashed. Season three debuted to a 0.7 in the demo and 1.57 million. By week two, viewership had dropped off more than 25% and the numbers fell further in week three.

Should Make It or Break It have been cancelled?

The five episodes of season three that have aired thus far have averaged a 0.5 in the demo with 1.23 million total viewers.

At least part of the decline may have been due to the losses of Chelsea Hobbs and Josh Bowman (who’s now on Revenge). Coach Sasha (Neil Jackson) also hasn’t been seen much this season.

Of the cancellation, series creator Holly Sorenson tweeted, “MIOBI nation. We all love you so much. And we are, very sadly, three weeks away from the series finale of #miobi.”

The final episode of Make It or Break It airs on May 14th.

What do you think? Were you still watching? Are you sad that the show is ending?

My daughter has taken to Make it or Brake it like I have never seen before, she is an aspiring figure skater with the dream for the Olympics, ever since she started watching this show I have never seen her train so hard every minute she gets she trains, she has gotten a massive drive from it, it has given her even more hope than ever before, even seeing all the ups and downs she feels like she is ready to take them on head first and I feel this program has probably done the same for a lot of younger athletes, it’s such a shame that none of those kids are going to see the out come, it’s going to be such a downer for all those children it has inspired. As a parent I know it is only a tv program and those kids that are going to make it will do it with out the show but for some kids its only ever going to be a dream and some will never even have the chance to try but I honesty believe this program will help many with there imagination on what could be even if it’s only a dream. Thanks for reading.

This is the third or fourth time ABC has cancelled a show right in the middle of a storyline.
