Eastwick -- Canceled!

Eastwick -- Canceled!

After drawing in fewer than 5 million viewers per night, ABC will not be ordering more episodes of the supernatural comedy Eastwick.

The freshmen show, which stars Rebecca Romjin, Lindsay Price, and Jaime Ray Newman, brought a new twist on the hit 1987 movie and book by John Updike, The Witches of Eastwick.

According to THR, Eastwick will finish production on 13 episodes and will air its final episodes on ABC in the usual Wednesday night time slot.

    Poor Lindsay Price-I really like her-I hope she finds a good show that will last!

  • katie

    i didn’t even know this show..

  • ynop

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! WTF man! Every show I get into gets cancelled! Why?!?! Eastwick is great show! A great escape from the current shows on the air. It was soo good and each episode got better and better. Can’t someone else pick it up!??! Damnit, I’m upset!! It’s the only show, besides The Mentalist and Law&Order:SVU that I actually enjoy watching…and make time for. Ugh!!!!!!

  • Jenny

    I’m not surprised. I tried to get past the first ten minutes of the pilot, but I had to turn it off. It was very boring.

  • Saudia

    Oh man that sucks. I caught the show a couple of times, when I remembered it was on LOL ..and it was quite good. Especially last weeks. Oh well. That really sucks for Lindsay, first Lipstick Jungle now this. She’s not a bad actress though, she’ll get some other role :) .. Hope the rest of the cast continue to do well.

  • Khristi

    @ynop: My sentiments exactly-I thinnk we should start a petition. I also enjoyed Lipstick Jungle. Bloody Hell!!!!!

  • amanda

    Lindsay can’t keep a job to save her life, can she? lol

  • yomama

  • lululu

  • jt

    the show isn’t bad. there are way many shitttty shows out there.

  • chloe!!!

    It figures :( It is a good show. They were just getting their footing and picking up creative steam . This is about as good a call as when the big wigs cancelled Moonlight right before the vampire craze hit….. They have some real dumbazzez working for networks now a days ! Hopefully someone will pick it up because it can do well if on the right network and time slot.

  • Steph

    poor lindsay price!! that girl can’t keep a show! and she’s sweet as pie.

    You take a show with a great cast and the first few shows have great
    scripts than you add on some awful cast members and a terrible
    scriptwriters.. why pay the script writers when all we have is junk…

    This show was great and now cancelled.. well now Lindsay can
    go back to Melrose and Rebecca can go back to being a full time
    mom..

  • yoyo

    I’m shocked, just shocked!! Now I will lay down and die. NOT.

  • martin

    It seems that in today’s TV business, shows are only kept on the air, if they create a buzz in the media. The ratings don’t matter anymore. You need scandals, actors ending up in the tabloids every day, to sell the advertising time.

  • shoegal421

    this is such a tragedy! it’s the only good new show this fall season! i am so mad at abc for canceling great shows like this and “pushing daisies.”

  • roseann

    I AM SO PISSED ! THIS SHOW IS ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC – YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE THE WRITERS ARE GOING TO TAKE YOU NEXT! THE BEST SHOW ON T.V. MAKE NO MISTAKES ABOUT IT! I’M CONTACTING ALL MY FRIENDS AND WE ARE GOING TO START A WRITING IN CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE NETWORK. I WILL GET THE NAME OF THE IDIOT RESPONSIBLE AND HIS/HER EMAIL ADDRESS — LET’S SEND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF EMAILS TO THE NUT! BET WE CAN GET THEM TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS — ARE YOU WITH ME?

    it’s a pity that the show is cancelled. I enjoyed watching the show.

  • juner

    talk about coincidence

    just watching a promo in uk and then read the article that it was cancelled, freaky

  • nat

    I knew there was not going to be a second season. I tried to give it a chance, but it was so boring and poorly executed that I just gave up on it.

  • coco

    See you guys at Starbucks with the rest of the unemployed population!

    Tsk tsk Poor Lindsay, another show cancelled. Hope she finds one that lasts at least 2 seasons.

    Ten years ago I stopped watching network evening tv because they cancel everything without giving it time to catch on. And in these ten yrs I have watched Lost and Eureka. That’s it. Until this year, then i started watching a few programs again, of which Eastwick is my favorite. So thanks a lot ABC for wasting my time again. i’m not sticking with any of your other new shows this season cause I hate wasting my time. After Lost ends maybe I’ll see you in another ten years. But probably not. Why not have another reality show. That’s just what we need.

  • Michelle

    This really upsets me! I love this show!

  • Danielle

    I started watching Eastwick and I was thrilled with the possibility at seeing a show that wasn’t like the rest, but 3 episodes in was all it took for me to see it was the same show with a different face. That’s when I found Defying Gravity. A show that brought back the saga of space and the unknown, while still keeping the human element so you could identify with it. If they should be bringing back anything it should be Defying Gravity!

  • http://lpauldo@yahoo.com me

    Really like the show wish another network would pick it up.

  • http://www.cougarswanted.com/ Sarah Smiley

    At least it was better than Fashion Mafia or Lipstick Jungle.

  • Bells

    This is just sad !
    I really liked that show and were hoping it would continue.
    How can 5 million viewers be bad? I don’t get it. It’s like the entire population of Denmark !

  • [marie]

    I’m VERY disappointed… I hope a basic cable network picks it up like they did Southland…

  • caxposed

    WHAT?!!! Why is this always happening to my girls? This blows big time!

  • roseann

    @nat:
    You have got to be kidding ! what show do you enjoy – I know, Seinfeld – right! Figures…..

  • http://allmylights.skyrock.com Claudie

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! COME ON!!! LOVE THIS SHOW!!

  • funnypie

    ATTENTION ABC, SyFy, or any TV people: Please save DEFYING GRAVITY. It is a great show! Please put DEFYING GRAVITY in Eastwick’s old slot! I love that show (Defying Gravity) and I do not think it got a fair shot during the summer! Thanks!

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com Roxanne

    Back again. Not only am I losing Eastwick but I’m not tuning in for only half hour to catch Cougar Town. Sorry Courtney, I liked your show. And my mother says she read that Flash Forward is on the line also. That was my second favorite show. There’s no sense in even getting interested in any other ABC shows. That means V , Forgotten etc. I hate getting into a program and then it gets cancelled. They might as well stick to 12 episode shows like Harpers Island if this is what they are going to do.

  • http://celebuzz corey

    eastwick is an awesome show and shouldn’t be cancelled! its interesting to watch and is new they should have given it more of a chance. many shows out now are degrading and ridiculous to watch and this is one of the few that everyone can sit down and watch together!

  • Lekili

    I don’t even know why the freaking networks bother to put new shows on the air, they ever allow allow an audience to find them and when they do, they cancel the show. Loved LIPSTICK JUNGLE and was enjoying Eastwick. I think the big 3 , ABC, NBC and CBS are losing their viewers to the likes of TBS, LIFETIME, BRAVO.

  • EH

    I love this SHOW :( That sucks

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ahahahahahahahahaha

  • Susan

    I’m not surprised this is being cancelled. It’s tough to make a series out of a really popular movie and an even better cast of stars than the series attracted. Sorry, but Jack’s performance just couldn’t be topped – or maybe I was expecting too much!!!

  • jenny

    i only watch 2 tv shows and this was one of them!!!
    Now back to shit TV again….

  • cosi

    …only the dumbest show on TV…. good riddance

  • cathy

    Defying Gravity should be brought back for that time slot . It is one of the best shows ever. ABC never gives good shows a chance and did not give any advertising to promote this show.

  • black

    isnt this a good thing?

  • Manuel

    i liked Eastwick…but i LOVED Defying Gravity! Put DG on the free time slot! :-)

  • scribbs

    AGGGHH!! Of course they cancel a show that isn’t about crime or medicine or some type of reality competition! Because that’s all the they think we want – the same frickin’ format on every channel.

  • grateful dad

    One thought: This is great news for Jack Carter.

  • Slavko

    What the frack is wrong with ABC?
    They really have to make their minds up before they program a show, and also promote them in a proper way instead of cancelling one every second week!
    The best example of that is for sure “Defying Gravity” :
    It was promoted way too late, was given the worst time slot, was reviewed by people who only saw 2 episodes of it and used to describe it as “grey’s anatomy in space” (what a joke!!!), it was finally cancelled before we even got a chance to watch the end of season1!
    Anyways, i think this time slot is fairly dued to Defying Gravity!

  • ABChater

    OMG…this sux so bad…I was really getting into the series…sure it was a little slow in the beginning but it’s finally getting better and they go and cancell it!!!! WTF…they should at least give it a chance…I thought they said 13 episodes…episode 8 should be on tonight but the stupid CMA awards are on I mean really if folks wanna watch that crap then they can put it on the country channel or something make it payperview instead of knocking out better shows for that crap…then next week there is some other stupid crap in the timeslot so what the hell happend to 13 shows..I’ve seen 7 people I want more!!!! this is horrible…BOYCOTT ABC!!!!!STUPID AZZEZ

  • rick

    Thanks ABC. Every time my wife & I get into a really good show, the networks cancel it. What a bunch of morons. What now another reality show? What a novel idea that would be; oh boy can’t wait.

  • liz

    @me: wow this really sucks. Eastwick is a great show!!!!!!!!!!! who ever took it off the air should be fired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
