Surviving Jack: Christopher Meloni Sitcom Cancelled by FOX

survivingjack02Christopher Meloni had a long run on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit but his FOX sitcom didn’t last. Surviving Jack has been cancelled after one season.

Surviving Jack revolves around Dunlevy family. A no-nonsense father (Christopher Meloni) starts tough-love parenting his teenage kids (Connor Buckley and Claudia Lee) while his wife returns to college (Rachael Harris). Others in the cast include Kevin Hernandez and Tyler Foden.

The series was originally supposed to have 13 episodes this season but the network cut the order down to eight installments. That’s never a good sign.

Surviving Jack has been drawing poor ratings on Thursday nights, following American Idol. The six episodes that have aired so far have averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.35 million total viewers.

The series finale is scheduled for next Thursday, May 15th.

What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be a second season of Surviving Jack? If you ran the network, would you have cancelled this sitcom?

I loved Surviving Jack! Why would you cancel it? It was hilarious, it was one of your best T.V. sitcoms. It was my favorite. Christopher Meloni was awesome. Please bring it back. Please!!!!

I loved this show. Every time I find a show that I like some PC $#$ comes along and cancels it. With all the reality shows that are on now this country is dumbing down faster than the speed of light.

Maybe with a few more shows like Surviving Jack which made us laugh instead of shows that show people being deceiving, cut throat and materialistic, this country might be a lot more calmer like it used to be.

We don’t need to watch Krapdashiens, Survivor, Bad Girls Club and those damn Housewives from all over the country and other shows like that.

What we need is a simpler time when we all weren’t chasing the almighty dollar and we enjoyed big family BBQ’s in the backyard.

This show was funny and we need this kind of show instead of the other crap that’s on tv now. Bring back Surviving Jack so that we may laugh again.
