FX Cancels Terriers
FX will not renew freshman drama Terriers, the network announced this past Monday.
The show starred Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as a pair of private investigators who became entangled in a corporate conspiracy that threatened their hometown of Ocean Beach.
The show was critically adored – so what was the problem? It struggled to find an audience from the very beginning. The series premiere in September drew 970,000 viewers and 0.49 rating among the coveted 18-to-49 demographic, considerably lower than the premieres of FX’s other failed series Dirt and The Riches. Last week’s finale scored a 0.3 demo rating and drew 784,000 average viewers.
FX President John Landgraf is expected to address the show’s cancellation at a news conference this upcoming Monday.
Are you sad to see Terriers go?
Nooooo!! Damn, that sucks. I really enjoyed this show.
I’ve heard really great things about it, but I haven’t had a chance to check it out. I’m sorry to see it get cancelled so suddenly. I feel like FX has had a number of great shows that have gotten canned to early… The Riches being one of the main ones that come to mind.
