Bad Judge and A to Z: Canceled by NBC, Will Finish Out Episode Order

at . Comments

A to Z won't ever get to the end of the alphabet.

On Halloween evening, NBC made the decision to end the struggling freshman series, which stars How I Met Your Mother's Cristin Milioti and Mad Men's Ben Feldman.

The series focused on a young couple, Andrew and Zelda (A to Z, get it?), the "couple that almost wasn't," and intended to follow their romantic journey from beginning to end. Unfortunately, they've become that couple that won't.

It was just a week ago that ABC took down the first series of fall 2014 when its canceled Manhattan Love Story, so it's not a surprise that NBC decided to follow suit by making their first cut by trying to slip in under the radar while people are off enjoying themselves on this otherwise festive Friday.

UPDATE: NBC also axed Kate Walsh's Bad Judge. Both it and A to Z garnered sub-1.0 ratings among 18-49-year olds in their most recent showings.

Both will finish off their 13-episode orders before going off the air.
