CANCELLATION ALERT: Selfie
ABC's Tuesday comedy block is officially a bust as they have cancelled Selfie. The show joins its previous companion Manhattan Love Story on the cancellation heap. ABC tried to launch a new comedy block at 8pm Tuesdays but everyone was pretty skeptical with the maligned Selfie and no-buzz Manhattan. It got off to an OK start but dropped hard from there. This past week, ABC double pumped the show and it responded with a series low 0.9 demo for both episodes. ABC will let the show air its 13 episodes (6 have aired so far) so that will probably take it to the New Year, where ABC will try something different.
With this cancellation and the full season for Forever, new shows still awaiting their fate one way or another are Cristela on ABC, The McCarthys on CBS, Constantine on FOX, and Red Band Society on FOX. Marry Me on NBC got an additional five episodes while Mulaney on FOX had its order cut, which is a de facto cancellation. Everything else is either cancelled or has a full season.
