Rake: Greg Kinnear TV Show Cancelled by FOX

Rake ratingsFOX has officially cancelled the Rake TV series. The news comes as no surprise and leaves the dark comedy with one episode unaired.

Rake follows a lawyer (Greg Kinnear) who tries to do good but just can’t seem to get beyond his numerous addictions that cause him so much trouble. The cast also includes John Ortiz, Necar Zadegan, Bojana Novakovic, David Harbour, Tara Summers, Miranda Otto, and Ian Colletti.

The show got off to a poor start on Thursday, January 23rd, and the ratings dropped lower in subsequent weeks. After seven episodes, the network sent the series to Friday night where the ratings got much worse — even by Friday night standards. FOX aired two more installments on a Saturday night and has yet to release the final episode.

What do you think? Do you think this show sould have been cancelled? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season of Rake?

Both my husband and I loved Rake! It was a refreshing show with twisted humor! Too bad it is cancelled! Just like The Good Guys!

It seems every time a really good show comes on with good writing it is cancelled. Please reconsider and give it another chance. Look how long it took American Idol to catch on. I still can’t understand why The new adventures of old Christine was cancelled it was so funny, with good writing. Rake was our favorite show, Greg Kinnear is a huge talent, you were lucky to get him to be in the show.
