The CW (ended 2009)
|I wish Chris Rock could give this show at least one more season then cancel the show setting the final episode in 1988.|
Rock did start his comedy career in 1988, but he was 22 years old.
The years would match, the age wouldn't. I dont see the logic behind your thinking aside that we'd get one more season :p
|its a little wierd that you're just saying that the show is cancelled. it would be nice if you had like a link to a page/interview something to confirm this.......|
"The network sent the sitcom to a little-watched Friday night timeslot. To no surprise, viewership dropped even lower, to an average of 1.69 million viewers and a 0.6/2 rating/share.
So, viewership has dropped significantly in the past couple years and the network is now targeting its programming almost exclusively towards young women. The CW is essentially giving up on sitcoms and will have only 10 hours of primetime to fill next season. Unlike fellow "on the bubble" sitcom The Game, Chris already has 88 episodes which is just enough for syndication.
Rock decided to make it even easier for the programming execs by making the season finale a fitting end to the series. In the episode, Chris is faced with repeating the 10th grade so he decides to drop out and take the G.E.D. test instead. Williams says, "An envelope arrives (with his test results), but before we find out the results, we fade to black. If it ends here, we ended it the right way."
Will Chris be back next season? It looks very doubtful but we'll know for sure on May 21st when the network holds its advertiser upfront presentation.
What do you think? Should the sitcom come back or is it time to go?"
