CANCELLATION ALERT: Working the Engels

NBC has had a lot of success this summer as evidenced by renewals for The Night Shift, Undateable, and Welcome to Sweden. However, Canadian sitcom Working the Engels will not join that list as it has been cancelled and will be pulled from the schedule immediately. The show was the weaker of the two late summer sitcom entries and its lead-in Welcome to Sweden will get double pumped for the next couple weeks.
