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.

    I hated it after promos but i watched first 6 episodes and i liked it. I always thought that it will be one season. Where would they go after summer? It was canceled because not enough people watched it.

    Now the most funny thing is that fat people always whine that everyone judge them by their looks. Now… It’s like 40-60 % in America are overweight right? So why none of them watched show about obese people like them? Why obese teenagers didn’t watch the show? Because they all watched other shows with skinny pretty people.

    Basically they judge other people by their looks :) They are the biggest hypocrites. There were plenty of good looking obese teens on Huge. But fat and obese girls and boys don’t dream about fat boyfriends/girlfriends like them… No… They dream about skinny Pattinson and Efron. And then they complain that people judge them by their looks when they are one ones that judge :)

    I think that they complain about judging like bullying, hating etc. They judge people by their look, but it doesn’t mean they are laughing, hating, beeing mean to them. Everyone has dreams, so they dream about Pattinson and Efron. Do you dream about someone ugly? Of course not. But reality sometimes shows that we can find love in our friend, no matter he is fat, ugly or someting.

    Nikki did a poor job of promoting it. She made herself look desperate and hateful on the Wendy Williams Show.
    Seriously, who wants to be a fan of desperate woman still crushing over a guy who doesn’t want her.

    I think if they had another actress in the lead it would had done better. Nikki Blonsky just alienates people with her personality not her weight

    Whenever I start watching a series I usually never give up on it! As somebody that works in the field of body image awareness and eating disorders awareness, I was excited to see ABC Family pursue a show where Nikki Blonsky’s character was proud of her curves. Even if some weight loss might have been necessary for health reasons, there’s never a reason to FEEL BAD about yourself as a person because of your weight!
    The problem with this show was it was just plain boring! The storylines were poor and there was very little real drama. With just three episodes left on my DVR I decided to delete them as I could not be bothered to watch any more poor production. ABC Family – great concept, terrible execution of the concept!

    @VC: I agree. I don’t care if she was crushing on said former co-star, that would have been fine to talk about when she was promoting THAT movie with said co-star. NOT years later. ITs been made pretty clear said co-star doesn’t want her. I kinda feel bad for her, it makes her look like nothing more then a super fangirl/stalker who happen to get her foot in Hollywood and now that co-star is ALL she can talk about.

    She really needs to find a guy of her own IMO.

    seriously i liked this show and i like PLL and Secret life and make it or break it plus i like melissa and joey but it was refreshing to see something totally different on the air i mean come on high school scandals been done pregnant teens done but got to admit as an ex gymnast make it or break it was refreshing to and huge was great for those of us who have gone threw those weight embarrassments or trying to fit plus i think since the large population of the u.s. is obese wouldnt this be just as important as Secret life because they taught everyone about gossip and teen pregancy so why not teach about obesity look at ruby thats a great show and she is obese.
    this sucks i thought they were all great
