ABC is saying goodbye to Uncle Buck. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has cancelled the series after one season.
The comedy starred Mike Epps as Buck Russell, a freewheelin’ guy who becomes the nanny for his brother’s kids. The cast included James Lesure, Nia Long, Iman Benson, Sayeed Shahidi, and Aalyrah Caldwell.
Uncle Buck debuted in June, and its first season received decent ratings for a summer season sitcom, earning an average of 1.12 in the 18-49 demo and 3.878 million viewers.
Star James Lesure confirmed the cancellation on Twitter:

What do you think? Did you watch Uncle Buck? Are you sad the series has been cancelled?
I heard about this show being the reason Mike Epps was leaving my show Survivors Remorse. I was appalled and angry that he would risk a top rated show for a remake of John Candy. At least try to work on both or take a leave or something,but dont give up your spot. ARE YOU SERIOUS? THIS IS WHY i never saw it nor do I care it was cancelled. I bet he wish he stayed with them…
