'Sean Saves the World' Sadly Couldn't Save Sean Hayes' Career
Bad news for fans of seeing Sean Hayes on NBC again: According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has officially canceled Sean Saves the World , due to low ratings that have plagued the show since it premiered late last year.
If you've been keeping up with the news surrounding this series, this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise: At the recent TCAs, NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt more or less said that networks execs were "unhappy" with the ratings that Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show were receiving, though they were "creatively" content with the shows. This pretty much echoes exactly what series star Sean Hayes said in an interview, though he sort of threw NBC under the bus while simultaneously praising CBS: "To me, [the show] is working,” he said in an interview with The TV Page. "It’s just the struggle of the elephant in the room which is, 'How do you get viewers to NBC?' NBC programs great shows, it just doesn’t have the eyeballs CBS does."
So, what does this mean for the remaining episodes that were ordered? Well, production has officially shut down, meaning the four episodes that were left to film in the season will no longer be produced. As for the episodes already filmed, they were set to air after the Winter Olympics, but with the show already done, it doesn't seem likely they'll see the light of day. Sorry, guys.
