'Go On' Has Been Cancelled By NBC

NBC has cancelled its freshman struggling comedy, 'Go On' starring Matthew Perry after one full season.

The series premiered to a huge 16 million viewers which is outstanding but it should be noted it premiered after the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics. During the Fall of 2012 the series held steady around six million viewers which would have been great for a renewal. However, once the new year started the series came back with four million viewers and by the end of the season it dropped to two million.

Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
18 - Double Down - March 5 - 3.07 million viewers
19 - Go For the Gold Watch - March 19 - 2.87 million viewers
20 - Matchup Problems - March 26 - 5.12 million viewers
21 - Fast Breakup - April 4 - 2.45 million viewers
22 - Urn-ed Run - April 11 - 2.67 million viewers

Not sure what happened to 'Go On' but over the span of nine months it dropped viewership by 14 million viewers. That is a huge decline and NBC made the right decision. If brought back for another season it could only get worse.
