"My Generation" -- so over
"My Generation" is over.
ABC confirmed it had canceled its new Thursday drama series after two broadcasts, the second of which averaged just 3.8 million viewers.
The show was about a group of high schoolers from Texas who had been the subject of a documentary in 2000 and who are being "revisited" now.
But that was the least of the show's worries. The show may have suffered death-by-timeslot. ABC scheduled it Thursdays at 8 -- a timeslot that had also killed ABC's "Ugly Betty" and "FlashForward" to name two shows.
Okay, "FlashForward" was just bad, but the point is still valid that Thursday at 8 has been a ratings sinkhole at ABC for some time.
And, as if that wasn't bad enough, CBS went and slapped William Shatner and "Big Bang Theory" in the hour. Between them, they've been sucking up around 12-13 million viewers the past two weeks, making things even harder for "My Generation."
Which is now "Toast."
