After a poor start, FOX pulled Sons of Tucson from the schedule. The network maintained that TV show was not cancelled. Well, it is now.
Sons of Tucson follows a sporting goods store clerk (Tyler Labine) who lives in his car. He’s hired by three boys (Benjamin Stockham, Frank Dolce, and Matthew Levy) to play their father for a school meeting after their real dad goes to jail for banking fraud. In case of future emergencies, he moves into their tool shed. The series also features Sarayu Rao, Edwin Habacon, and Natalie Martinez.
The series got off to a poor start with just a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.47 million viewers. Subsequent episodes performed even worse, with number four attracting only a 1.4 rating in the demo and 3.13 million viewers.
The TV show was pulled from the schedule and the network touted it as merely a hiatus and not a cancellation. However, with ratings like these, you could tell that the show’s chances for a second season were in serious doubt.
FOX has now officially cancelled Sons of Tucson but new episodes are still scheduled to start airing on June 6th. The remaining nine installments will air over the summer and the series finale is expected to air on August 1st.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Sons of Tucson won’t be back for season two? Have any ideas on why the show wasn’t a success?

Hello, I’m so not happy that Sons of Tucson was cancelled, in my opinion it was the funniest sitcom, Iv ever seen in all my years of watching TV ( 44 Yys ) The first episode I had laughed so hard my belly & jaw hurt and from there I was hooked. I so hope that someday you all will reconsider airing Sons of Tocson again…
I really really enjoyed this show. I saw it on Netflix and laughed my ass off. I told some of my close family members about it and thought it awesome as well. I wish it were a Netflix thing so there would be more seasons. 🙁
Honestly I saw it because it had Tyler Labine and also I’ve lived in Tucson. It turned out to be funny and I really liked how he started to connect with the kids. I want to know if they’ll survive with Ron getting the assistant manager position and I want to know about the boys real dad.
Show is really good! Should have given it a proper chance. Netflix should pick up if it’s not to late.
Sad that this only had one season…very good show.
bring it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this show!
Love this show can’t believe they cancelled why were there so low?? Hope enough people watch this on Netflix that it gets picked up by them
Awesome show awesome concept funny as hell what the **** is Fox thinking
I think this show is hilarious. We just happened to find it on Netflix and we are so disappointed it only has 1 season. I had never heard of this show, so maybe FOX should blame themselves for not publicizing an obvious winner.

This show is hilarious why they would cancel it makes no sense. I want another season FOX!
This is the best sitcom I have seen in a long time
