It’s case closed for Franklin & Bash. The TNT buddy-legal series has been cancelled bt the cable channel after four seasons and 40 episodes.
Franklin & Bash revolves around two unconventional lawyers and best friends who end up being hired at a prestigious law firm. This season, they end up running the place. The most recent cast includes Breckin Meyer, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dana Davis, Kumail Nanjiani, Malcolm McDowell, Reed Diamond, and Toni Trucks.
For whatever reason, the series was way down in season four, averaging 1.16 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That was down more than 45% when compared to season three’s ratings (which were also way down).
In addition, Turner Broadcasting President David Levy has said that the cable channel is now focusing on airing more “edgy” shows — like Legends and Public Morals.
The fourth season finale aired on October 22nd and will end up being the show’s series finale as well.
What do you think? Did you like Franklin & Bash on TNT? Why do you think the ratings fell so dramatically? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a fifth season? Would you watch it on another channel?
