It’s all over but the shouting for Lena and Martin. ABC has cancelled its Splitting Up Together TV show after two seasons. The series, which was never a Nielsen ratings sensation, really took a dive in the second season, so the news that there will be no third season is not exactly a surprise.
An ABC comedy, Splitting Up Together stars Jenna Fischer, Oliver Hudson, Bobby Lee, Diane Farr, Lindsay Price, Olivia Keville, Van Crosby, and Sander Thomas. The comedy centers on a married couple, Lena (Fischer) and Martin (Hudson), who have decided to “bird nest” despite their divorce, i.e. the parent who is on-duty in a given week lives in the house with the kids, while the other decamps to the garage. Soon they find the new arrangement has put some much-needed life into their relationship.
