The Mayor loses popularity at ABC

The Mayor loses popularity at ABC”

The network ordered three backup scripts and paired it with the popular series, Black-ish, on their Tuesday night comedy line-up. The network has canceled the first-year comedy, pulling it from the schedule a few days ahead of its scheduled return on January 9.

The Mayor starred Brandon Micheal Hall as an aspiring rapper who becomes mayor of his California hometown after running to gain some publicity. Hulu, a joint venture with Disney, has stacking rights to the series.

The Mayor was ABC's only comedy to premiere this fall, but on the bench remains the Roseanne revival, the family comedy Splitting Up Together and Zach Braff's new show, Alex, Inc.

The earnest, clever comedy was a welcome presence in ABC's comedy lineup. The show has aired nine of its thirteen produced episodes.

The show averaged a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49 and a 2.94 million viewers in initial airings. Producers ABC Studios plan to shop the comedy to other networks. The series has aired seven of its 13 episodes and will wrap production.

ABC has cancelled the freshman comedy, Variety reported Thursday. On the drama side, ABC has yet to schedule The Crossing, Deception, Shondaland's For the People and the Grey's Anatomy spinoff as the network has little real estate remaining.
