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?

    I’m not surprise at all…. NBC Universal as been doing this ever since my “name is Earl” another high rating show and cancelling caused NBC Universal to take another hit on the stupid chart especially after this very bad move….

    I’m definitely disappointed that they pulled the plug on this show. I thought it was very funny and having been to India and having friends there made me enjoy the show all the more. Too bad the ratings went down.

    The show was great and very funny but it sufered a slow rating downfall because it was to close to the reality of every day life. If maybe they would have shown more of india as expected it may have held on for more seasons.

    There’s enough of a fan base that this could easily have been continued via webisodes if they really had too. Really sad this show is gone. It had me laughing constantly.
