Outsourced: NBC TV Series Cancelled; No Season Two

Outsourced canceled season twoThe little sitcom that caused a lot of controversy last summer has quietly ended its run. NBC has cancelled Outsourced after one season on the air.

Outsourced follows a US sales manager, Todd Dempsey (Ben Rappaport), who’s assigned to supervise his company’s call center in India. The sitcom also stars Anisha Nagarajan, Diedrich Bader, Parvesh Cheena, Pippa Black, Rebecca Hazelwood, Rizwan Manji, and Sacha Dhawan.

The NBC sitcom started out decently and it looked like NBC might have a keeper on its hands. Last September, Outsourced debuted to a 3.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.49 million viewers. In week two, the demo number fell 22% to a 2.8 rating and 5.85 million viewers but that was still pretty healthy by NBC standards.

Should Outsourced have been cancelled?

Unfortunately, over the course of the season, the ratings just kept dwindling downward. The ratings have gone as low as a 1.4 in the demo with just 2.97 million viewers. Those are horrible numbers for a major network, even NBC.

Outsourced’s season currently averages a 2.1 demo rating and 4.55 million viewers. For NBC, that’s not too bad but the average is only that high because of the early season ratings.

It’s certainly not a shocker than NBC has cancelled Outsourced after just one season. The 22nd and final episode, titled “Rajiv Ties the Bharat, part two,” aired last night.

What do you think? Are you disappointed that there won’t be a second season of Outsourced? Why do you think the TV show didn’t catch on?

It was a great show, and I totally agree with the reviews that the cancellation of the Outsourced Season 2, sucks .Being an Indian, I was never offended. It was just like a mirror to me, that how my culture and my people in the community leaves and works out their daily chores. I want to watch the next season, please NBC. It is a great show.

Uggghhh…. :( I thought this show was really cool and different not to mention how nice it is to see a little more diversity on TV.

i love this show and it has my full support. it is hilarious and joyful to watch, also i enjoyed the cultural side of the show but perhaps not to explore it to the extreme in the comedy aspects. i love how the characters have their own individual stories and how they try to connect them together. love the jokes and the characters, please bring it back for the die hard fans.
