ABC Family Cancels 'Huge'

Huge is the latest show to get the axe.

The ABC Family series starred Nikki Blonsky and Hayley Hasselhoff as teens at a weight loss camp. Huge launched over the summer with Pretty Little Liars and Melissa & Joey.

Deadline reports that PLL and Melissa & Joey will receive orders for new episodes to replace Huge.

    Guess ABC Family got sick of spending 87 percent of their budget for this show on Kraft Services!

    Of course it got canceled! fat or obese white women on television? Where people can see that not all white women are a size 2 to 4!? God forbid! What would happen to white privilege then? Secret revealed, not all white women are slim but having a show like “Huge” where someone might deem fat as acceptable is dangerous for status quo aka white privilege. Dangerous i tell ya!
    See, obesity is reserved for the likes of Black women, yup, see who represents black women better than gabby sidibe…uh, i don’t know? zoe saldana? but she won’t get a vogue cover OR marie claire cover anytime soon now will she :(
    i’ll let you figure it out. adjö.

    it was real and shows how
    plus sized people face things.

    This isn’t about network television being opressive to plus sized women. They made the first step, the show got put on the air, and frankly not enough people watched. It’s as simple as that.

    No matter what you think of the subject matter it was a well crafted and written show on a television landscape that rewards stupidity and poor quality.

    Yes I watched it, and really enjoyed it. It was a unique show, that showed Obesity in a different light. I really hope that this is a decision that ABC Family regrets. It was a good show.. :( Poor public.

    GREAT. We have to stop glamorizing and glorifying unhealthy lifestyles. Being obese is not healthy or cool. Good riddance.

    obesity is not healthy … neither is starving yourself to look like a heroin addict …

    but it’s TV … you need pretty people to suceed

    Agree with ashley, the acting was pretty good and those people (except Nikki Blonsky) were mostly first-timers at acting.
    Also, to all these concerned commenters: the show WAS NOT promoting obesity, it was about some teens trying to get rid of the lard who also happened to have some other problems. It was a good drama.

    Nope, I didn’t get the chance to watch “Huge”. I usually watch ABC Family shows once they’re available on DVD. The ONLY three… well, now it’s only two, exceptions (“10 Things I Hate About You” used to be the third) are “Greek” and “Melissa & Joey.” What can I say? I grew up watching Melissa Joan Hart in “Clarissa…”, “Sabrina…” (including the animated series) and even “Dancing With The Stars”, so watching this new sitcom was a must on my list… and it’s actually pretty good. Although I didn’t watch this show, I heard good things about it so I was excited to watch it once it made it to DVD. Guess now it won’t be happening, since I’ve been waiting for “10 Things… Volume 2″ to be released since forever now.

    I never watched the show so I won’t comment on what I think about it, but the fact that it went so far as to make it to TV is a coup. Sounds like not enough people were interested in it. Sometimes that’s what you get when you use the name of another celebrity you made a movie with years ago, to promote yourself and your show.

    Pit Says:

    kgg – you are right on point !! And she was hateful in the press more than once about said former co star’s long term romantic relationship with another actress whom he obviously is head over heals in love with.
