Underemployed: Is the MTV Series Essentially Cancelled?

underemployed on MTV canceled soon?MTV has quietly shipped their Unemployed sitcom off to Saturday nights, an evening when their target audience is likely out doing other things. Is this a bad sign for the show’s future?

Underemployed follows the lives and relationships of a group of young people whose lives haven’t worked out as they’d hoped. The cast includes Diego Boneta, Inbar Lavi, Jared Kusnitz, Michelle Ang, Sarah Habel, and Charlie Weber.

The sitcom has been under-performing in the ratings and this season has been averaging just a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 490,000 viewers. Last week’s episode hit a new series low with just 340,000 viewers. (You can check out the week-by-week ratings.)

For comparison’s sake, the last season of Teen Wolf averaged a 0.7 rating and 1.69 million viewers.

The Inbetweeners, another MTV sitcom, only fell as low as 530,000 viewers and that show was cancelled last week.

So yeah, it looks like Underemployed is doomed to be cancelled. On the positive side, there are five episodes left.

What do you think? Do you think that Underemployed should be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Is it a better show than the ratings indicate?

    I think Underemployed should have a second season. I like it allot and manny people record it when they have stuff to do and those numbers aren’t in the number they have up there but if they where they would know it deserves a second season. So PLEAS!!!! shoot it!

    Although it’s not quite realistic, I really loved this show.

    I saw the trailer and so I checked it out. Downloaded at least 4 episodes. And all I can say is that it’s super not funny. The trailer was the only laugh-worthy part. Its too dramatic. We have enough drama in our lives, ty very much. I prefer Awkward :-) but idk, I suppose everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

    I really enjoyed this show. It’s well written, looks fantastic, has really good and sympathetic actors and plot and I feel a strong identification with it.
    It’s such a shame there are no episodes left to watch. Pleas make another season!
