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?

I loved the show. Something original. Why not cancel some of the lame shows they still air — Last Man Standing for one. None of the story lines are original on that show. Rake should be on a different night–not Friday.

We thought the programme was one of the most humorous and entertaining Australian shows we have ever seen. are very disappointed that there will not be a second season.
Why doesn’t the Australian audience support their own industry? By the way we are kiwis. bring back Cleaver Green
