Secrets & Lies, starring Juliette Lewis and based on an Australian format, exceeded ratings expectations in its first season in 2015, earning a Season 2 renewal. But the second season was held back last spting, launching this past fall instead, a year and a half after the end of the first season. Ratings dropped, making cancellation virtually inevitable.

Dr. Ken, created by and starring Ken Jeong, which was based on his real-life experiences as a medical doctor, also did better than expected in the early going but slipped in its second season. For its two-season run, it aired on Friday behind Last Man Standing, which also was canceled.
