The drama with Morena Baccarin did not convince the American public, low ratings also for the series with Ted Danson and Kenan Thompson that stop after two seasons.
An explosive couple like the one formed by Morena Baccarin And Ryan Michelle Bathé it was not enough to save The Endgame from the ax of the cancellations of NBC. The peacock’s net erased it heist drama after only one season. Likewise, the comedies did not pass the ratings test either Mr. Mayor And Kenan which stop after two seasons each.
The Endgame will not have a second season
Still unpublished in Italy, The Endgame followed two antagonists: Elena Federova (Baccarin), an international arms dealer and brilliant criminal mastermind behind a string of bank robberies in New York, and Val Turner (Bathe), a relentless, principled FBI agent who he stops at nothing to stop Federova. The series convinced an average of 3.6 million viewers weekly equal to 0.4 rating in the demographic target 18-49 years, numbers similar to the previously canceled Ordinary Joe which aired on NBC in the same slot. Among the 14 dramas that aired on the net this season, The Endgame it was ranked 13th by rating and 12th by number of spectators. As is often the case with generalist series, unfortunately the first season (and now also the last one) ended with a major cliffhanger that will never be resolved at this point.
NBC pulls the plug on Mr. Mayor and Kenan
In Mr. Mayor (available in Italy on Sky and streaming on NOW), Ted Danson He played a wealthy business tycoon who runs for mayor of Los Angeles as a joke and ends up winning the election, having to deal with bigger bureaucracy and situations than he is. Despite the important pedrigree (the creators are the minds behind a masterpiece like 30 Rock Tina Fey And Robert Carlock), Mr. Mayor he lost an audience in the second season (only 2.4 million weekly viewers and a 0.4 rating).
Renewals, cancellations, new series: All the news from the 2022 Upfront
Kenan, who followed the star of the Saturday Night Live Kenan Thompson as a busy single dad trying to reconcile family with his job as host of a morning TV show in Atlanta, he recorded an average of 2.1 million viewers equal to 0.35 rating in the demographic targer 18-49 years. These are numbers in sharp decline compared to those of the first season that have slipped the series to the last place among the 5 sitcoms broadcast by the network this year: the cancellation was inevitable.
