Apparently today is Obvious Cancellation Day, because The CW has followed Fox’s lead and made the long-overdue decision to whack Emily Owens, M.D.. The first-year show was six episodes into its first season when The CW said no more.
But there WILL be more, for this is the season where shows that networks don’t want to see a fourteenth episode of get to put all of their produced episodes on the air. All 13 episodes of Emily Owens, M.D. will be broadcast so that you can get closure and the actors and crew can pick up a few more paychecks.
The most recent episode of Emily Owens, M.D., which aired last night, drew one million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the adult demo, which may as well have been a flatline.
The CW has pulled the plug on Emily Owens, M.D., TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The network has elected not to pick up the back nine episodes of the medical dramedy. Starring Mamie Gummer and Justin Hartley, Emily will wrap production on its initial 13-episode order next week, and the network will air all episodes, six of which have already aired.
Emily Owens bowed to 1.7 million viewers and a 0.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, building on Hart of Dixie‘s lead-in audience (1.3 million, 0.6), but it was down more than 50 percent compared to Ringer‘s debut, which premiered mid-September last year in the same timeslot. However, Dixie and Owens’ premiere numbers combined for The CW’s most-watched Tuesday since Nov. 29, 2011, despite going up against a debate. Its latest outing drew 1 million viewers and a 0.3.
CW has already picked up Arrow and Beauty and the Beast for full seasons, while Cult and Carrie Diaries will debut midseason.
