UPDATED with Living Biblically’s cancellation: No surprise here — there will be no second seasons for CBS’ freshman series 9JKL, Me, Myself & I, Living Biblically and Wisdom Of the Crowd. Neither series was expected to be renewed. All have been either pulled from the schedule or moved or not ordered for Back Nine.
Of the four, the only series that still had a pulse was 9JKL, co-created by Mark Feuerstein and Dana Klein inspired by Feuerstein’s real-life experiences. The series was a modest but relatively steady ratings performer throughout the season. It launched to a so-so 8.2 million viewers and a 1.6 in adults 18-49 (Live+SD) behind Big Bang on Monday and ended its four-week run in the Monday 8:30 PM slot with a 1.4 in the demo and 7.2 million viewers. Since moving to the 9:30 PM berth with no Big Bang on Monday, 9JKL posted a 0.8 in 18-49. In L+7, the comedy was averaging 7.40 million viewers.
9JKL starred Feuerstein, David Walton, Elliott Gould, Linda Lavin, Liza Lapira, Matt Murray and Albert Tsai. Klein and Feuerstein executive produced with Kapital Entertainment’s Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor as well as Wendi Trilling and Pamela Fryman.
