ABC Family Cancels 10 Things I Hate About You

ABC Family has just cancelled 10 Things I Hate About You. The sitcom will air the remaining five episodes of its current second season before it ends.

What happened here? When the show debuted last summer, it was popular! In fact, it was more popular than Ruby and the Rockits, ABC Family's other short-lived sitcom, and that one starred David Cassidy. David Cassidy, guys. 10 Things was on its way to becoming one of the most successful film-to-TV remakes ever! It shared just enough parallels with the movie to do it justice, yet it could also stand alone as its own brand of current events-laden rom-comedy. But sadly, ABC Family decided to bring it back at a weird time of the year (March) and post its episodes online four days after they aired on TV. Fail. And now it's joining those other shows to romp and play at that big farm in the country.

    It looks like we don't deserve quality shows: as soon as some appear, they get the axe. It's much better to rotten our minds with trashy, so-called reality, shows... I hope the cast know it's not, in any way, their fault: they were great, as were the writers!
