NBC has pulled the plug on Michael J. Fox Show.

Despite a lovable lead, along with the presence of Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), The Michael J. Fox Show struggled in the ratings from its outset.

It rated an abysmal 0.6 among 18-49-year olds in late 2013, prompting NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt to admit at last month’s Television Critics Association press tour that the show faced an “uphill battle.”

And now that battle is over.

The sitcom has aired 15 of its scheduled 22 episodes and there's no word on whether the final seven will ever be broadcast or not.
