Selfie: Canceled by ABC, To Air at Least One More Episode

at . Comments

Selfie has been given the axe by ABC.

Despite a pair of lovable leads (Karen Gillan and John Cho), the sitcom - which featured Cho as  PR guru and Gillan as a self-absorbed woman obsessed with her image and social media - never found a steady audience.

First Fight  - Selfie Season 1 Episode 1

Unlike fellow ABC sitcom Manhattan Love Story, which was pulled immediately after the network's cancelation announcement, Selfie will air a new episode this Tuesday.

Its future beyond that date is uncertain, though no new episodes have been ordered.

This past week, a pair of original episodes of the series each logged an underwhelming 0.9 rating among 18-49-year olds, the most coveted advertising demographic out there.

Selfie‘s demise highlights the problems overall for new comedy series this fall. Only one first-year sitcom, ABC’s Black-ish, has received a full-season order.

Last week, NBC canceled A to Z and Bad Judge, but both will complete their 13-episode orders.

In other ABC news, the network did order a full season of Forever.

Did Selfie deserve a longer leash? Will you miss the series? Do comedies have any chance at all on air at this point? Sound off now!

Henry: President. Like that guy could be president.
Eliza: You're right. You are so smart. You should be on the supreme court.

Eliza: That scared me and I lashed out and called you a coxcomb. Which is probably an incorrect use of the word.
