Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling have both been part of successful TV shows in the past but how’s their new comedy Mystery Girls doing on ABC Family? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Mystery Girls follows a pair of former stars (Spelling and Garth) of a 1990s detective TV show as they open their own investigations agency in Beverly Hills. Miguel Pinzon plays their enthusiastic superfan and receptionist.
Despite touting two former 1990s TV stars (ala Melissa & Joey), this sitcom got off to a poor start on June 25th and attracted a mere 759,000 viewers with a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The numbers got even worse as the weeks progressed and fell to a low of 365,000 viewers and lower than a 0.2 in the demo.
The 10 episode season ended on Wednesday and it’s the cable channel’s lowest-rated scripted series. Based on the low ratings, it’s highly unlikely for ABC Family to order a second year.
But, what do you think? Do you like the Mystery Girls TV show? If you ran the network, would you cancel it or rework and relaunch the series for a second season?
