Mystery Girls: Cancel or Keep the ABC Family Sitcom?

Mystery Girls TV show on ABC Family: canceled or season 2?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?

    I thought it was funny and had lots of strange but funny character and that’s what we need in this day and time funny and romance and silly and they had it. Brinnge them back, they were amazingly good together.

    I liked it and i think it definitely got better with time, but i think Tori Spellings character could use some work. She seems very fake and a little annoying otherwise i like it a lot.

    I checked out Mystery Girls, but it is such a stupid show. Please CANCEL it as soon as possible. Tori Spelling CANNOT act. Hopefully, Jennie Garth who can act finds better work.
