'Malibu Country' Cancelled By ABC

ABC has cancelled its freshman comedy series, 'Malibu Country' starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin after one season.

The series premiered to over nine million viewers which is fantastic  for a brand new series, especially on Friday nights. However, the series had been hovering around the five-six million mark for the entire season. 

Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
14 - Bowling For Mama - February 22 - 5.11 million viewers
15 - Oh Brother - March 1 - 6.15 million viewers
16 - Marriage, Malibu Style - March 8 - 5.92 million viewers
17 - New Plans - March 15 - 5.60 million viewers
18 - All You Single Ladies - March 22 - 7.04 million viewers

Very surprised that ABC cancelled the series considering other comedies were renewed with the same ratings and viewership, and, was show on Friday nights which makes the ratings look even better than other nights. I could have seen ABC make a two hour comedy block on Fridays consisting of, 'Last Man Standing,' 'Malibu Country,' 'Suburgatory' and a new comedy.
