‘The Muppets’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

The Muppets TV comeback has come short, with ABC canceling the revival comedy series after one season.

The Muppets struggled to get traction with viewers with its original incarnation in the fall and the midseason creative reboot despite a high level of curiosity and nostalgia that brought in viewers for the premiere, which logged 9 million viewers and a 2.7 demo rating in Live+same day. The Season 1 finale logged 2.7 million viewers and a 0.8 adults 18-49 Live+same day rating.

Because of the strength of the Muppets brand at Disney, an idea was floated in the past week to try and bring back the show for one more shot but it was eventually squashed.
