A Sean Saves the World Community
NBC (ended 2014)

The prophecy is true! On the same day that some extremely handsome, all-knowing being predicted that Sean Saves the World would be canceled, Sean Saves the World was canceled. According to multiple reports, NBC has stopped production the sitcom, effective immediately. 

NBC originally ordered 13 episodes of the Sean Hayes comedy, then boosted the order by five for a total of 18. Twelve of those episodes have already aired, and two more of them have been filmed; according to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC will hold those two episodes and burn them off at a later date, probably well after the country's eyes are off the network's coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics. That means Sean Saves the World will also be leaving the schedule immediately. 

Okay, so predicting Sean Saves the World would be canceled was about as easy as predicting that Sean Saves the World would be terrible. But it's a move that came sooner than I expected; because NBC has such a strong working relationship with Hayes (who produces Hollywood Game Night and was also a producer on Smash), I figured the network would at least let the series finish out its run, which wasn't even a complete season to begin with. But Hayes himself is probably even more surprised as I am, given that he once said his show was the funniest sitcom on television.

One less NBC Comedy? Good. Gives more hope for Six Seasons and a Movie! Go Community!

This is one of my least favorite part of them "aborting" shows this way. It's like for a short while they pretend it's still alive, trodding out it's corpse for those last few episodes and being exuberant about it even though it has been long since cancelled forever. I dunno, seems sad to me. Who wants to watch that?

Good riddance, but you better be wrong about Revolution!

I also hope Super Fun Night will be safe for another season.

Not surprised. That show and the Michael J Fox show was in my dead pool. Michal J Fox is still going.

Even though the show wasn't that good and the ratings were bad, NBC really doesn't have much else and Sean Hayes has a little bit of pull at NBC. They could've at least let the remaining 6 episodes air. I do hope that Thomas Lennon gets cast on a better show next season. He was the lone bright spot on that show.

Too late for my oh-so-wrong deadpool, sigh...
And well, hardly a surprise seeing the ratings... The MJFox Show next?

Well, I liked it in the beginning, now I'm getting sick of it, so...in a way, it's too bad, in a way....good riddance.

I'm not surprised... it usually takes more than an attached name for me to like a show. I like Hayes and I like Michael J Fox as well as their shows in the past.

But their new shows just didn't do it for me. The same goes for Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams. I love SMG but her new show hasn't really hooked me.

On the other hand, Bradley Whitford and Malin Akerman drew me into their show because I love both of them. But personally I feel their show is stronger (at least more than Hayes' / Fox's show) so I've continued watching.

I don't actually care one way or the other, but if this opens room for a hopefully-funnier sitcom next season... Sure! GTFO, Sean Hayes!

Or if it makes it that much more likely for Community to get renewed. :D

Way too much hatred in here...granted, the show had some bad writing here and there and relied on too many cliches but it was a better comedy than most on tv now (and still, i mean himym got 9 seasons? 9 seconds was too much)...oh well, win some loose some...but Sean Hayes needs to be on tv!

Good shit. I try not to be a hater but I fail epically when it comes to Sean Hayes. His stereotypical gay characters are infuriating and it makes it so much worse that he genuinely thinks they are hilarious. It should be against the law for some people to be in front of the camera. Sean Hayes is one of them and Alec Baldwin is another.

Amazing they canceled this before Michael J Fox. I seriously hope it's not because of sympathy due to MJF's Parkinson's. Maybe due to some contractual agreement?
Reply

While MJF isn't a stellar show, it's so much better than this ever even tried to be. this show was just abysmally horrible.

Maybe. I saw only one episode of Sean. I got to the Christmas episode of Fox's show, but I just didn't care to watch it anymore. Fox's ratings were a little bit lower than Sean's as well, which is why I find it odd NBC is still sticking with it thus far. Surprised it was not a double cancellation announcement.

SSTW basically relies on either him being gay or his mother issues as a crutch for comedy. the only gems on this show are his daughter Samantha Isler (A surprisingly good child actor) or his boss, Thomas Lennon.

Good. Sean Hayes got too much credit for being funny on Will and Grace, despite being nothing but a horrid gay stereotype. Let the world see that he really isn't funny with this failure at a solo project.

On which part? Him being unfunny? Or his role on Will and Grace being nothing but a massively over the top gay stereotype?
Reply

Sean Hayes being unfunny. And I wouldn't say massively, but of course there was that, part of the role...
Reply

Of course the writers are to blame too. But, it just baffles me that him as a gay man would lower himself to doing that and not take issue with the portrayal.

Unfortunately lots of good shows have bee cancelled in the last few years for low ratings only to be replaced by worse shows with even lower ratings. Every year there are less and less shows that make it past two seasons. The networks now they've made mistakes but the actors have already moved on so they can't resurrect the show. NBC and CW are especially bad for this and ABC has gone for having a couple new hit shows a year to none.

I still think about Go On. I so wish someone would bring it back. I think it's cast was right up there with Community and Parks & Rec in terms of being a great ensemble.

I still can't believe such a great show, with an amazing cast of characters, didn't get the love it deserved.

MJF is enjoyable, but Go On was much more than that. SSTW is an insult to all of NBC's comedies last year. All.
