The Assets: ABC Cancels Spy Drama — Again

The Assets TV show on ABC canceledMaybe fans of The Assets will get to see all eight episodes of the ABC series some day. The network cancelled and pulled the limited TV show after just two low-rated episodes back in January. Then, last month, the network decided to burn off the remaining episodes on Saturday nights.

Two new installments have aired on but the ratings have been dismal, even by Saturday night standards. Now, the network has pulled The Assets off the schedule once again. They’re replacing the remaining episodes with reruns of Mistresses.

Hopefully, ABC will just release the remaining episodes online so the show’s small audience can finally see the rest of them.

Hee are the press notes:
