ABC’s Manhattan Love Story Axed



Manhattan Love Story is the first show to get cancelled by ABC. 

The news was delivered late Friday, probably after all of the DVR ratings kicked in and after the series hit a new low with only 2.6 million viewers and a 0.7 rating.


Next week, MLS and Selfie will be replaced by a Halloween special. The following week, ABC is doubling up on two episodes of Selfie to fill the time slot. No other plans for upcoming weeks have been disclosed. 

Selfie has had slightly better ratings garnering a 1.1 with 3.8 million. I don’t think that will save it from the axe though…

The first cancellation took longer than usual,with MLS lasting a whole 4 episodes. Usually networks cancel after just 2 or 3 episodes have aired. Now, with DVR +3 and +7 rating  many networks are giving more chances and waiting a little longer to make the move. Delayed viewing can increase ratings considerably. New drama How To Get Away With Murder doubled in viewers with DVR ratings taken into account. Red Band Society saw similar victories, spiking 82% in +7 results. Therefore, it wouldn’t be in the networks best interest to cancel a show that is doing better in late views. 

What does this mean for other shows? Well, some of them are in real danger.

Mulaney, Fox’s struggling comedy, had it’s episode order reduced to 13 instead of 16. The show was part of an “early pick-up” so those episode have already been shot and Fox doesn’t want to loose money by pulling it. 

It’s reality show, Utopia was moved from Tuesday’s slot to Friday nights.

Usually when shows fall beneath a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic, they meet their match.

According to ratings, several other shows are going to be joining Manhattan Love Story in the bin. Here are our predictions. 

  • Selfie, Resurrection and Revenge are all dunzo. Both ABC dramas saw a huge decline in ratings week-to-week, hitting a season-low this past Sunday. Revenge might be saved just because of it’s dedicated fan-base and possibly DVR, but critics are predicting this is the shows last season. 
  • CBS will probably kill off Person of Interest.
  • Fox will cancel Mulaney and Utopia for reasons mentioned above. Also Gracepoint might not make the cut. 
  • NBC is likely to cancel A to Z and Bad Judge. It’s just a hard world out there for comedies isn’t it?
  • The CW is known for much lower ratings because of their “teen audience.” They can get away with successful 1.0 ratings. As the shows currently stand Reign is at a 0.50, The 100 at 0.59 and Jane the Virgin at 0.65. I doubt they would cancel Jane since the show is getting a lot of buzz as the “falls most promising.” However, if they want to include any of the other shows yet to premiere, to get the cut. So, if anyone is going it’s Reign or The 100

Doesn’t it seem like we were just in premiere week? Now we’re nearing cancellation week and sweeps. Oh, the TV world. Drop us a comment on Twitter @CraveYouTV and let us know which show you want to see saved!

WATCH: Mel and Jack Talk Starting a Family in ‘Virgin River’ Season 3 Trailer



Virgin River Blown Away Review Season 2 Episode 10

There’s plenty of baby talk going around in the Virgin River Season 3 trailer! 

Netflix dropped the trailer for the upcoming drama on Friday, June 11 and it doesn’t waste any time answering the question on everyone’s mind: does Jack survive?

It’s quite an obvious answer considering there is no show without Jack, but if it’s been keeping you up at night, the good news is that he does. 

Of course, that doesn’t put the question of who shot him to rest. (And we have some theories you can check out right here!)

As he recovers, he’s blessed to have Nurse Mel by his side.

With their romance finally heating up, the nosy locals in town begin asking questions about their future — is marriage in the cards? And what about babies?

5 Biggest Moments from ‘Virgin River’ Season 2

Mel’s history will definitely come into play, especially as it was always her dream to have a child. But Jack is a new father to twins (at least we think they’re his) with his ex Charmaine. 

Luckily, Charmaine is no longer hung up on him as she’s found a new man who is there for her and the kids! 

Check out the trailer below:

WATCH: ‘Gossip Girl’ Reboot Trailer Gives First Look Into the Scandalous Lives of Manhattan’s Elite



Hey Upper East Siders,

The long-awaited Gossip Girl reboot has finally dropped its first trailer.

Nine years after its original run in 2007-2012, Gossip Girl is back and ready to ruin the lives of the next generation of New York’s elite.

This time, she’s upgraded technology and can wreak havoc beyond her blog and outdated flip phone’s contact list.

Through the use of an anonymous Instagram account, she threatens to unveil a huge secret among the ruling rich kids at the private school Constance Billard.

With a cast full of up-and-comers including Jordan Alexander’s portrayal of the queen bee, Julian Calloway, and Whitney Peak as the new girl, Zoya Lott, the show seems to do a great job of diversifying its characters.

There are a few familiar faces including Elizabeth Lail (You) and Laura Benanti (Younger), and the recognizable voice-over of Kristen Bell as the ominous Gossip Girl.

In this short two-minute trailer, it’s clear that the show will be full of drama, and according to the official logline, “The prestige series will address just how much social media–and the landscape of New York City itself– has changed in the intervening years.”

Don’t forget to tune in, as the series will officially stream episodes on HBO Max weekly starting July 8.
