NBC Yanks “Sean Saves the World”
Sean might be able to save the world, but unfortunately, he couldn’t save his show.
NBC has dropped the cancellation axe on “Sean Saves the World,” stopping production on the comedy series’ freshman season, according to TVLine.
Though 18 episodes were ordered, four of those were not completed, with the last two unaired episodes set to air after the Sochi Olympics.
The show’s ratings have been in a downward trend, with the Peacock Network opting to swap the time slots for “Sean” and the similarly-rated “Michael J. Fox Show” beginning last week.
NBC has a number of new comedies set to launch in the coming months with the aid of the Olympics, including the TV adaptation of “About a Boy” and Jenna Elfman’s “Growing Up Fisher.”
Bill Lawrence’s (“Scrubs,” “Cougar Town”) “Undateable” has yet to receive a premiere date.
The multi-camera comedy starred “Will & Grace” star Sean Hayes as a single gay dad trying to juggle both his professional and personal lives.
