Syfy Cancels The Wil Wheaton Project
Syfy has canceled The Wil Wheaton Project, according to Wil Wheaton.
Though the network has yet to officially announce its decision to not move forward with the freshman talk show, Wheaton blogged about receiving the bad news on Friday.
According to Wheaton, Syfy executives in New York didn't think the weekly series had enough viewers to justify making more episodes. "I didn't say anything about the total lack of promotion off the network, or point out that our ratings were on par with The Soup, or that ratings are always lower in summer than the fall. I didn't bother saying any of that, because I know he knows that," Wheaton said of his conversation with an unnamed Syfy exec.
"I'm really okay with it," Wheaton recounted. "I'm super sad that I won't get to work with my writers and producers, and I'm sad that we don't get to keep writing jokes, but I did everything I could to help the show succeed. I promoted it the best way I could, I worked hard to write stuff that was funny, and I tried so, so, so hard to get the network executives in New York to understand how they could help the show succeed."
