It's May and that means we're going to start getting lots of cancellations, renewals, and pilot pickups. That started today with the cancellations of two FOX shows: Pitch and You the Jury.
Pitch, centered on the first female MLB player, had some acclaim and attention and came from the creator of NBC's mega-hit new show, This is Us. But Pitch struggled mightily in its Thursday night slot and was uneven creatively despite the prestige feel and promising cast and plot. It always seemed like an odd fit on FOX too.
FOX also quietly cancelled You the Jury after two quiet Friday airings earlier this month. It got pulled off the air quickly after being a megabomb even by FOX Friday standards. We will probably never hear of the critically panned reality show again.
