Terriers: FX TV Show Cancelled; No Season Two

TerriersThough many critics loved the FX series, Terriers just couldn’t attract enough viewers to stay alive. FX has announced the TV show has been officially cancelled.

Terriers follows a pair of unorthodox and unlicensed private detectives. They’ll take just about any job, no matter how small or how strange. The show stars Donal Logue, Michael Raymond-James, Kimberly Quinn, Laura Allen, Rockmond Dunbar, and Jamie Denbo.

The series debuted to a 0.5 rating among the 18-49 demographic and 970,000 total viewers. When compared to other FX shows, that was a poor showing right from the start. The numbers went lower for subsequent episodes and the recent season finale attracted a 0.3 demo rating and 784,000 viewers.

FX President John Landgraf is expected to discuss the decision later today but ultimately the reason for the cancellation seems quite clear.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Terriers won’t be returning for a second season? Why didn’t it catch on? Was it simply a confusing title or something more?

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of the television stations canceling the BEST SHOWS! It just feels lik enoone cares about what smarter audiences want to see! I sure hope that The Audience Network will consider picking up this wonderful show as it did with Damages!

This show was awesome.!! Maybe the name Terriers threw off alot people in the beginning because it did to me. With the commercials only showing a terrier dog. (during the first commercials over the summer.)
