‘Imaginary Mary’ Among Several Freshman Series Canceled By ABC

No surprise here. ABC has pulled the plug on the live-action/CGI comedy Imaginary Mary after a tepid midseason run. The series starring Jenna Elfman opened to decent ratings, drawing a 1.4 among adults 18-49 for its preview on Wednesday but couldn’t carry that to Tuesdays where it averaged between 0.7-0.9 in the demo (L+SD).


Other freshman ABC series that have been officially canceled include dramas Notorious and Conviction, which didn’t get back orders, and Time After Time, which was swiftly pulled from the schedule.

Imaginary Mary centered on fiercely independent single career woman, Alice (Elfman), who falls head over heels fora divorced father of three. Meeting Ben’s kids is so stressful that the very idea triggers the reappearance of her imaginary childhood friend, Mary (voiced by Rachel Dratch).
