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?

    Please don’t cancel the series. Is one of the best I’ve ever watched. I just watched the season finale and I felt this empty feeling in me. If that doesn’t show how good the series is then I don’t know what can.

    Please do not cancel this show! Finally, something worth watching that doesn’t involve strange relationships, pregnant teenagers, or drunken idiots.

    This show is wayyyyy better than the ratings are showing. It’s about 5 young adults that are just trying to find themselves. Love it!

    All the way in Holland me and my friends are crazy about this show.. We would be really dissapointed if they stopped it, just for some stupid rating.. Do they count the whole world in their ratings???

    I just started to get into this show! The later episodes were a lot better than the earlier ones. I really don’t want it to he cancelled when it has just started getting going.
