TNT Cancels "Men of a Certain Age"

Just a day after lead actor Andre Braugher received an Emmy nomination for his work on the series, TNT has announced that it will not renew Men of a Certain Age for a third season.

The critically acclaimed series, which stars Braugher alongside Ray Romano and Scott Bakula as three middle-aged buddies, is a casualty of low ratings. At the end of its second season last month it bowed to a disappointing 1.8 million viewers, 591,000 of them in the 19-49 demographic. That was down 33% from the Season 2 premiere in December.

In a statement released by TNT, the cable network expressed the usual regrets about having to cancel, its pride at having had two seasons of "great storytelling and impeccable performances," and best wishes to the cast, crew and creators of the show.

The cancellation allows room for a reboot of the 1980s series Dallas, as well as new episodes of Falling Skies and Franklin & Bash. More scheduling changes are reportedly on the way.

From Deadline.

    I'm mad at that, for real. That was my show! First Chicago Code, which I also loved, gets yanked, now this? Not cool at all.

    Amazing show. I loved so much about it.

    This was my show! Pissed. At least it had some semblance of closure.

    This is a shame. It was a lovely show, and Andre Braugher all day every day really.

    Correction-Perception airs in the summer of 2012 with Dallas and Levar Burton is in the cast.

    Remember The Closer is ending this year too. They still have Perception with Arjay Smith and Will McCommick set to air in Winter 2012.

    Sad. It was a solid show. They all excelled -- Braugher, especially. Even Brian White was a great fit (lol).

    "Dallas" won't hold a candle... even with J.R.
