Never heard of this show? It’s OK, most people haven’t. And for that reason, reps at ABC have confirmed that they have pulled the show out of their primetime schedule. There has been no word on what might replace My Generation in it’s 8pm EST slot on Thursdays, but it’s likely that repeats of comedy hits Modern Family and Cougar Town might make the cut – at least for now.
It’s as if having a new series set in Texas is a curse this fall. My Generation took on the mockumentary approach for the season in following a Texas high school Class of 2000 10 years later in a “where are they now” setting. With filmed footage from 2000 and newly filmed footage from 2010, the show set out to look at how their lives have changed in the last 10 years. Incorporating landmark historical events in the last decade, such as 9/11 and the Enron fiasco, My Generation couldn’t seem to garner critic or viewer support. The series premeire garnered around 5 million viewers, while it’s second episode less than 4 mill.
My Generation is the second new series to be cancelled this season after Fox dumped Lone Star earlier this week. What do you think about this? Were you a fan? What show do you think might be cancelled next? Let us know what you think in our FORUMS or comment below!
