It certainly didn’t look good when CBS dropped their sitcom The McCarthys from the schedule. Today, we learned that the TV series has been cancelled, leaving four episodes unaired.
The McCarthys revolves around sports-crazed family from Boston. Athletically-challenged and gay son Ronny (Tyler Ritter) plans to finally move away to start his own life. Those plans are thrown into turmoil when his basketball coach dad (Jack McGee) offers him a job as assistant coach — much to the dismay of Ronny’s siblings. The sitcom also stars Laurie Metcalf, Jimmy Dunn, Joey McIntyre, and Kelen Coleman.
The sitcom debuted in late October and, despite mediocre ratings, the network kept The McCarthys on the air. It was the lowest-rated scripted series on the network in total viewership and had the lowest demo rating of any CBS sitcom this season — including The Millers which was dropped mid-way through its second season.
Now, The McCarthys has been cancelled as well and there’s still no word on when or if the final episodes will be shown.
What do you think? Did you like The McCarthys TV show on CBS? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a second seaosn? Would you watch the four remaining episodes?
