Well, this sure is bad news for fans. NBC has cancelled its Great News TV show after only two seasons. The sitcom was never a big earner in the Nielsen ratings, and the season two renewal was only for 13 episodes, so the fact that there will be no season three isn’t a huge surprise.
An NBC sitcom, Great News stars Briga Heelan, Andrea Martin, Adam Campbell, Nicole Richie, Horatio Sanz, and John Michael Higgins. The workplace comedy revolves around Katie Wendelson (Heelan), a frustrated cable news producer. Her work and personal lives collide when her stay-at-home mom, Carol (Martin), decides to follow her dreams and gets an internship on Katie’s national news show, The Breakdown. It’s Katie’s worst nightmare, until she realizes that having her biggest cheerleader at her side does have its advantages.
