‘Sullivan & Son’ Cancelled By TBS After Three Seasons

The slate overhaul at TNT and TBS continues. TBS has cancelled comedy series Sullivan & Son after three seasons. Sullivan & Son and Men At Work were TBS’ first original comedy series to take hold, both going to three seasons after making it to the air in 2012. Men At Work was cancelled in May, with transplant Cougar Town also wrapping its run on the network. This leaves Ground Floor, which debuted in November 2013 and was renewed for a second season, as the only returning TBS original scripted series in 2015, when it will be joined by newbies Buzzy’s, Angie Tribeca and Your Family Or Mine.

Sibling TNT also recently cancelled three established series: Dallas, Franklin & Bash and Perception.

Created by Steve Byrne and showrunner Rob Long, Sullivan & Son took place in a legendary neighborhood bar in a working-class Pittsburgh neighborhood. It centered on Steve Sullivan (Byrne), the son of the bar’s current owner (Dan Lauria) and the grandson of its founder who surprises his Irish-American father and Korean-American mother (Jodi Long) when he decides to leave his job as a successful corporate attorney in New York and return to take over the bar. The most recent third season averaged 1.6 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, down 21% and 26%, respectively, from Season 2.

Sullivan & Son marked the first series order for Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television, which has since landed another series pickup for animated comedy F Is For Family.
