Web-to-TV Show Quarterlife Canned After Abysmal Ratings

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 0 comment

Burbank (CA) - The dramedy that went from Myspace to NBC has been canceled after one episode, after it received the network's worst rating for its time slot in 20 years.

Airing at 10:00 PM Tuesday night, Quarterlife came in at a distant third place among the networks with 3.1 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among the 18-49 crowd.

The show began as a microseries on Myspace's video sharing site, and is the first such show to be brought to network TV. It was highly touted by NBC and seen as a potential new wave of TV content.

The show was announced during the writer's strike and was poised to make waves as the only new scripted drama to air in the middle of the union feud. However, the writer's strike ended just before the Academy Awards, putting Quarterlife in competition with other new shows.

Remaining episodes will air on NBC's sister cable network Bravo, according to sources reported by Reuters. It is unclear if new episodes will continue to be made for Bravo.
