Sons of Tucson: TV Show Cancelled by FOX, No Season Two

Sons of Tucson cancelledAfter a poor start, FOX pulled Sons of Tucson from the schedule. The network maintained that TV show was not cancelled. Well, it is now.

Sons of Tucson follows a sporting goods store clerk (Tyler Labine) who lives in his car. He’s hired by three boys (Benjamin Stockham, Frank Dolce, and Matthew Levy) to play their father for a school meeting after their real dad goes to jail for banking fraud. In case of future emergencies, he moves into their tool shed. The series also features Sarayu Rao, Edwin Habacon, and Natalie Martinez.

The series got off to a poor start with just a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.47 million viewers. Subsequent episodes performed even worse, with number four attracting only a 1.4 rating in the demo and 3.13 million viewers.

The TV show was pulled from the schedule and the network touted it as merely a hiatus and not a cancellation. However, with ratings like these, you could tell that the show’s chances for a second season were in serious doubt.

FOX has now officially cancelled Sons of Tucson but new episodes are still scheduled to start airing on June 6th. The remaining nine installments will air over the summer and the series finale is expected to air on August 1st.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Sons of Tucson won’t be back for season two? Have any ideas on why the show wasn’t a success?

    I do get cable and I didn’t know this show existed until I saw it on Netflix watch instantly. It’s very funny. Good cast all around. Can’t wait to watch the last 9 episodes. Too bad it’s cancelled–if that is indeed so. What time of day/day of the week did they air it? Why did I never hear of it? The right fans just weren’t tuned in. I guess it could get old eventually too, and like all good things come to an end. BUT I AM NOT READY YET!

    This just shows how much Fox sucks,. This was a great show and the acting was terrific. It’s very sad to see it get cancelled.

    This was one of my and my wife’s favorite shows. We always laughed. It is very sad when something good is pulled and all the worthless – no talent content remains. If we had a vote, we would vote to bring it back.

    I thought it was a hilarious awesome show…. But whataya expect? We ARE talking about the same network that cancelled Futurama after only 4 seasons :/ and that is one of the greatest shows ever made!

    My family loves this show! We dont understand why all the comedy shows we love keep getting canceled and all we’re left with is cop dramas and reality shows that arent even reality. Keep the laughter in our lives, we need it.

    Sons of Tucson was brilliant, with expert writing and perfect casting. Shame on FOX for not letting it percolate long enough to capture even more fans. Can anyone say “Flying Blind” (another tight comedy axed by the geniuses at FOX, before its time).

    This is one of the funniest shows I have seen in a long time. I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I laughed that hard. As soon as I finished watching the 1st season on netflix I searched for the 2nd season only to find this article. What a shame.. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
