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?

    That is crap that they cancelled this show. I just recently finished watching it on Netflicks, and it was an AWESOME show. Like Stogez said, they never promoted it. Had I known about it, I would have watched it in 2010. They seem to have a bad habit of canceling good shows.

    Unbelievable! This was such an amazingly funny and smart show. I may have caught on to it late but there is no reason it should be canceled. The only reason this show did not do well is because the network did not promote this show at all and no one knew about it until it was too late…
