Supernanny: ABC Airs the Last Episode; Was It Cancelled?

SupernannyTonight, ABC says goodbye to their Supernanny reality series. Jo Frost announced that she was ready to end the TV series so that she would have time to start a family of her own. After seven seasons, Nanny Jo has parked the “nanny-mobile” for good.

Had the ratings been better, ABC might have considered bringing in a new host. With the ratings as they are, it was only a matter of time before the TV show would have been cancelled. It’s currently the lowest-rated show on the network.

Here’s the last episode description from ABC:



“Evans Family” – After six seasons, on the 117th episode and series finale of “Supernanny,” Jo Frost travels to Houston, Texas to work with a family whose mom died of breast cancer a year earlier. Jo lost own her mother to breast cancer when she was growing up. “To me, this is the end of the world!,” laments 6-year-old Michael, who misses his mother terribly and feels his memories of her slipping away. Dad Gary is trying his best to raise Michael and younger sons Sean, 4 and Dylan, 3, on his own, but he’s overwhelmed and can’t bring himself to enforce the rules his wife established for the boys. The boys act out, there’s lots of sibling fighting and their screaming can be deafening at times. In addition, Dylan still isn’t potty trained, and all the boys are picky eaters and devoted to unhealthful foods. When Sean acts up over not getting candy and Jo puts him into his first time out in ages, an epic standoff takes place. Can Jo help this grieving family find peace? Find out on “Supernanny,” FRIDAY, MARCH 18 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Nick Powell is the creator and executive producer of both the American and British versions of the show. Nick Emmerson and Stephanie Schwam are executive producers of the American version. “Supernanny” is produced by Shed Media.

This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.

    I’m really sad to see JoJo leave, we watched her every week with the whole family, she has taught so much to so many people, its hard to think she was the lowest rated show, BRING HER BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! their are plenty of other stupid shows that could come off the air.

    I will be very sorry to see Jo Frost go. She is an amazing woman and while I don’t have kids of my own yet, I work with children and when I do have kids, I will have learned so much from watching her show. She is remarkable and has genuine sincerity. I wish her luck and God’s blessings in starting a family. She is someone who deserves to have children of her own, they would be lucky to have a mother like her!

    I am super sad to see Jo going off the air….If it hadn’t been for her, I would have never even learned how to do a proper time out…she is FANTASTIC! I would look so forward to watching her show every week to get some much needed pointers for raising my two boys. I am so disappointed that the ratings were so low in her last season. I honestly think that this is one of the only reality shows that should even be on tv. How can one watch that mindless junk like Jersey Shore, but not this wonderful show that happens to help everyone who has children. I am truly disappointed and will miss Nanny Jo. :(

    I’m really sorry to see this canceled, although I wish Jo the best with her own family! I have three little boys and I’ve honestly learned a lot from Jo. It is pretty rare to say that television made your life better, but Jo’s show did.

    I love Supernanny, she does amazing work with totally messed up parenting skills of these parents. I wish her the best. No way its the lowest rated show. Me and all my friends, family and coworkers watch Supernanny.

    I cannot believe it was the lowest rated show on ABC! I watched every episode and will really miss the show. Jo is amazing! So warm, wise, sweet etcetera. I wish her well in starting her own family. I’m wondering will there be re-runs shown?

    I really love her show. She has a great deal to teach every parent. She is there for the WHOLE family. I wish her happiness with her own family

    She really has done well. She had no formal training. Now I wish she would really admit how she went about w her methods? Did she have help? I know she had help once she got on TV in the UK, bue before she got on TV how did she create her child training plans?

    I will miss Supernanny, I think it a great show. She have the patience to work with kids that have problems, and is very good straight the problem out. Come back Supernanny do not leave the world need you.
