“Men of a Certain Age” cancelled after two seasons

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: After just two seasons on the air, TNT has announced that its series “Men of a Certain Age” will not return for a third. Despite critical acclaim which praised the originality of the show’s characters and its success in appealing to an underserved middle-aged male demographic, Emmy nominations for co-star Andre Braugher in 2010 and 2011, and a Writers Guild of America nomination in 2011, low ratings and the need to make room for other high-potential programming, such as the revival of “Dallas,” prompted the network to take “Men of a Certain Age” off the air.

Last year, co-star Scott Bakula said of star Ray Romano and his co-creator, Mike Royce, “It was never their intention to have [“Men of a Certain Age”] become a nine-year-old show, to keep it going and going. Their intention is to move the stories along relatively quickly.”

Read TNT’s statement on the matter, “TNT has been proud to be a part of Men of a Certain Age for two seasons. While the show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances, the audience simply hasn’t built to the point where we can continue the series. This was an extremely difficult decision for us. We wish Ray Romano, Mike Royce and the terrific cast and crew of Men of a Certain Age the very best and look forward to exploring new programming possibilities in the future.”

    I am really disappointed that such a quality show is being cancelled. I think everyone who is a fan should contact TNT and let them know what a bog mistake they are making.

    What a gigantic mistake!! I loved this show and was so looking forward to seeing where the characters were going. Just a doggone shame, that something so close to real life was barely promoted, while so many totally ridiculous shows are advertised ad nauseam.

    Any chance another network will pick this show up? One of the best shows I’ve seen on television in years.

    Seriously, this show was fantastic it was real and heartfelt, with amazing writing, acting and who knew Romano could do drama?
    It didn’t help that season two showed 6 episodes then took ???? weeks off before showing the last 6. We had to DVR it, because we had no idea if it had been cancelled or what was going on.
