    The documentary filmmaker on ABC's "My Generation" waited 10 years to find out what happened to a group of Texas high school grads. It took viewers far less time to decide they didn't care.

    ABC has cancelled "My Generation" after only two low-rated episodes. The first airing was already a disaster for the poorly reviewed series, which then fell more than 30 percent on Thursday (Sept. 30), averaging only 3.9 million viewers and a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49, unacceptable numbers even in a time slot that has recently claimed the life of "FlashForward" and "The Deep End."

    I really tried to like this show, but it sucked so much... The cast has no chemistry at all, the stories are uninspired and the documentary style wasn't carried out too well. I was bored to death, so I guess it's good they canceled it.

    I was really starting to like this show! Super bummed that it's already canceled. I think it could have really suceeded but it was in a horrible time slot. I mean it was on the same time as Vampire Diaries on the CW and that show is huge right now not to mention competing with shows on CBS.

    I really liked the show. It was different. ABC didn't give the show a chance to evolve. We were still exploring the characters and how they all intertwined. I hope they at least air the remaining episodes.

    Wow!.......WOW!


    First, Lone Star, now this... I guess these days, if it doesn't have vampires or demons, it's shot to hell.


    (Pun intended). Seriously, these shows are being cancelled too fast.


    New ratings system anyone?
