Blood & Oil Is All Dried Up at ABC

Apparently mixing Blood & Oil doesn't make for a very good TV show. Or at least not one anyone's interested in watching. According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC has cut the show's episode order from 13 to 10, which means it's canceled, but will still finish out its run. 

The series, which stars Don Johnson as a wealthy oil baron and Chace Crawford as an ambitious young man chasing the American dream during the largest oil boom in American history, has been weighing down the network's Sunday evening programming. Sandwiched between Once Upon a Time and the recently picked up for an almost-full season Quantico, the soapy drama debuted with just 6.3 million total viewers and it's been losing eyeballs ever since. The most recent episode notched just 3.5 million viewers. The series also stars Scott Michael Foster (Chasing Life), Rebecca Rittenhouse (Red Band Society), and Amber Valletta (Revenge). 

Despite falling ratings, the series was also plagued by behind-the-scenes instability almost from the start. According to reports, the inability to mesh showrunner goals with network demands led to a leadership change and two separate writers' rooms being created over the summer. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why that would lead to issues.

Blood & Oil joins Fox's Minority Report and NBC's The Player in the losers category. Both series have also seen their episode orders cutMinority Report will wrap up after 10 episodes, and The Player after nine. Meanwhile, LimitlessRosewoodBlindspot, and Dr. Ken all join Quantico in being picked up for full seasons. 

Will you miss Blood & Oil? How's your Dead Pool looking so far?

Blood & Oil is a GREAT show. The execs at ABC are idiots for cancelling it. Give it a 10 PM time slot on a Sunday night when there is usually nothing good on TV and the show will do well. BRING THE SHOW BACK---PLEASE!!!!

Blood and Oil was a great show n great cast. I was excited to watch the show I had my DVR record while I was at work. All 3 of my teenagers enjoyed the show and one of those 3 is a boy. This show reminded me of the original Dallas the one from when I was a kid n watched it with my grandma n mom. It's sad these tv networks keep taking the good shows only to leave the crap like Mike and Molly, izombie,2 broke girls and big bang theory on. TV networks suck these ratings on these good shows can't be that darn low

I am so very disappointed to hear this!! This was the only new show that my husband and I watched!! I agree that Quantico made no sense at all. We didn't make it through the pilot episode. Oh well, I guess we'll search another network to fill that time slot or Netflix!

BIG mistake ABC! I love this show, and it's absolutely one of the best on TV! I googled to see when the next season comes on and read the 1st season was cut short and they cancelled the show entirely. I agree with another comment that said getting tired of Scandal and How to Gwt Away with Murder lost me last season. This is the only drama-type show I watch on ABC. I don't like any of the stupid fairytale shows either. Also agreed you should rethink and give it another chance ABC!!

Loved Blood and Oil and all of the characters. What piece of crap will ABC replace it with? Please reconsider. The story line and great actors are surly good for a few more seasons. Who has the ego problem, get rid of that one.

Are you serious this TV series Kicked ass. I'm waiting for it to coming back. And then I read it's cancelled what the fuck is ABC thinking. I totally boycott ABC. And what Fuck about Quantico are they coming back with that TV series too or are they canceling that you One too? Plus ABC took away that cool TV series selfie. And I'm still pissed off about that TV series too. Like what the fuck come on, we love those series that you make, play on TV and ABC should fucking keep those series listen and read comments to know what the people like. And we love blood&oil and Quantico and selfie. Just please bring them back I have nothing else to work. ABC is the only channel I get so please I'm begging you bring back blood&oil, quantico, and selfie.

I loved this show - it was the best thing since Dallas, which also got cancelled - it was a whole lot better than most of the trash that is on like the Kardashians and all that other reality garbage. And we don't all like football. You people wouldn't know a good TV show if it bit you in the A@@. Since I have to get up really early, I always recorded it on DVR and watched it the next day. I don't know if that affects the ratings or not, but a lot of people do that so if it does affect it you are not getting true ratings.

I've always wondered this too. I work at night, and also hate commercials, so I always DVR the shows I watch..

Wow, very surprised because this was a good show. 2 issues, I believe have led to its downfall, first - it was on Sunday night, any show on Sunday night seems to be doomed before it starts because of football and second, airing a few episodes (like 4), and than no episodes for a few weeks hurts shows. How is a viewer supposed to know when it will air again? Many shows seem to be doing this and it is really confusing to know when a new episode is airing.

You idiots! The show was a really good show but nothing is going to beat out Sunday Night Football!!! You morons should know better and perhaps tried putting it on another night like Tuesday which is the worst night of television by far! So now lets throw on another medical or cop show or perhaps maybe a fat show where people lose weight. Fricking ridiculous! So many idiots work within the broadcasting industry!!!

Why the hell ABC canceling Blood & Oil? Finally a show that appease both husband and wife, can enjoy together, and what too many people watch it online? I think ABC needs to update their technology on who is watching through other means then T.V.

Well ABC does it again and kills a great show before it gets off the ground
I should have maintained my boycott of this network after killing OLTL and AMC
I guess soaps day or night time are not in your long term plan
So done with ABC
