Bosses at U.S. network Fox have brought down the axe on several new shows, including Dads, Enlisted and Surviving Jack. The cull came on Wednesday (07May14) when it was confirmed none of the programmes will get a second season.
Seth MacFarlane’s Dads had been much maligned by viewers and critics alike following its debut last September (13), while Surviving Jack, starring Christopher Meloni as a no-nonsense dad, also failed to prove a hit. Enlisted, about three soldier brothers posted at the same base, received critical acclaim when it aired in January (14) but failed to register impressive viewing figures.
Creator Kevin Biegel took to Twitter.com to break the news to fans, writing, “Well guys, we fought as hard as we could – all of us – but #Enlisted isn’t going forward at Fox. Thank you from all of us for your support.”
