The Village, The Enemy Within Among Cancelations at NBC

at .

It's a sad day to be a moderately rated NBC freshman series. 

The Peacock network has officially canceled The Village, The Enemy Within and Abby's. 

When The Village was announced to be picked up to series at the network a year ago, it was touted as the next This Is Us.

However, the series failed to catch on in the ratings and was moved to the 8/7c slot for its final episodes following weak ratings.

The Village Season 1 averaged 4.1 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating on Tuesdays, meaning that a renewal was unlikely. 

Still, the show boasted a robust cast that included the likes of Moran Atias, Lorraine Toussaint, and Michaela McManus.

The Enemy Within was another midseason entry that failed to catch on. It stepped into the Mondays at 10/9c slot when Manifest Season 1 concluded. 

The Jennifer Carpenter-fronted drama averaged 4.4 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating, almost half of what it debuted with in February. 

The show did boast strong gains in delayed viewing, but the lack of buzz in addition to the weaker than expected ratings always meant that it was not on steady ground.

As for Mike Schur comedy Abby's, it has simply not been resonating. It is currently averaging 1.7 million viewers and a paltry 0.4 rating. 

The shows join A.P. Bio, I Feel Bad, Marlon, Midnight, Texas, and Trial & Error as the shows canceled at the network.
