The CW Cancels Emily Owens, M.D.

by at . Comments

The CW has pulled the plug on Emily Owens, M.D.

Although boasting a terrific cast, led by Mamie Gummer, the freshman medical series struggled in the ratings since its premiere, debuting to just 1.7 million total viewers. That figure dropped to just one million for this week's installment.

Like ABC with recently-canned Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue, a network insider says The CW will likely air all 13 episodes before taking Emily Owens off for good.

Earlier this month, Beauty and the Beast, which benefits from its Vampire Diaries lead-in, was picked up for a full season by The CW.

So sad to watch the last episode of "Emily Owens M.D."
It really felt good to see how they wrap up the show in such a natural and simple way, like if it was a normal weekly episode with an 'I need more' kind of ending.
When it first aired, I instantly fell in love with the writing; refreshing and actually 'cute' (if that can be said about a writing style). Then, Mammie Gummer, so good at playing kind soul and quirky Emily.
The thing is, that maybe they haven't really comprehend the nature of this show. Maybe 'The CW', wanted something like an amazing medical drama show, and let's admit it, from the point of view of medical stuff; this is not 'ER' (by the way the best medical show ever). For me, the hospital is just the place where the characters play their emotions, so I can understand why the medical panorama is not as true as it should be, only to reinforce the dialogue between people, such in need these days, just that. This show is about these people who happen to be doctors.
I signed the petition because I think "Emily Owens M.D." should have never been in the cancelation line and it deserves another chance to shine again.
And come on, TV Networks, let the shows grow, give them time; if not, we couldn't have had the remarkable season two of "Buffy" or the following ones, for that matter.
Mention Justin Hartley aka Oliver Queen, the reason why I stumbled with this tv show, in the first place.

Please don't cancel this show. It is great. Give it a chance. I discovered this show while going through the channels searching for something of substance and have been a fan ever since. Mamie Gummer is fantastic. Put the series on another channel. Please give America a quality show to watch.

I don't know why it shocked me that they cancelled this show so soon. The CW is a predominantly teenage network that wants to aim for larger (older) demographics but is scared of (/has no interest in) the hard work and commitment to actually get there. Even though I wasn't hooked at the start, by what would've now been the mid-season finale, I was hooked. It's a pity they stepped out only a quarter way into what would be deemed a normal season. Regardless, it was a piss poor decision by CW to cancel Emily Owens.

Nice to see the CW continuing its tradition of cancelling intelligent, well-written, quality shows. Then again, maybe people who enjoy such shows aren't the CW demographic? In any event, I'm never gonna give the CW another chance again.

This sucks soooooooo bad I just watched the last episode of EMILY Owens M.D and I LOVED IT. I just hate that we will never see What's happens with Emily,Will and Micah in the long run. Wish another network would pick up the show cause I freakin live it and I think the CW THIS VERY STUPID for canceling it.

Watching the last episode they're airing. This is such an amazing show. Honestly my favorite. It's seriously depressing that they're going to cancel after Micah and Emily (totally have been shipping them 4ever) started dating. This is ridiculous.

I can't believe a quality show like Emily Owens MD is cancelled leaving viewers with nothing of real intelligence to watch. Come on CW be a leader not succumbing to "fluff" shows that capitalize on everything supernatural. Save this show or hopefully another network will see the huge potential and buy the show.
