Update: The CW's Paul Hewiwitt denies that the show has been canceled. "It has not been shut down.
If anyone had bothered to call me, I would have told them that.:"

Our apologies to the CW. In our haste to get the story first, we jumped the gun.

original post:

Vancouver based production blogger Susan Gittins has tweeted that Emily Owens has been canceled, writing. "Sad news today. Vancouver-shot #EmilyOwensMD cancelled. A charming show that got lost in Fall launch."

The show premiered to an 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. Subsequent episodes hit as low as a 0.3, though last night's episode rose slightly to an 0.4. More details as they become available.

    This series wasn’t “cancelled” it just didn’t receive a back 9 pick up. The CW will air all episodes ordered.

    Production might not have been shut down, but the CW haven’t ordered more episodes have they…

    lol @ the change of title

    It will be canceled soon enough that much is fact.

  • JJA

    “production shut down” vs. “canceled”

    In other words, the CW plans to air all 13 episodes it paid for, but will not order any more episodes??

    lol @ your stupidity. TSC sucked and deserved to get canceled. Now go cry in a corner.

  • Mindy

    That is awesome. Love the show!

    or yes?…

    I’m confused.

    My quote: “- that what I was saying. All Emily Owens has to do is rise 0.1-0.2 and be safe. Calling it doomed after three episodes was way too early.”

    0.5, 0.3, 0.3, 0.4

    is hardly “woeful” for the CW (a new show, no less, on the supposed “cursed” time-slot).

    Give it a few more weeks…

    I thought it was strange that EOMD wasn’t mentioned on Deadline being cancelled. I know the CW has an hour open on Fri that’s going to be filled by reruns of Arrow for now. There’s a good chance that either Cult will go to Fri or placed on Thur bumping BATB to Fri after Nikita.

    I bet TSC fans are laughing their asses off right now LOL. Even though the show was cancelled, watching the CW fail again and again must be something to rejoice.

  • Danielle

    Plus BaTB’s freefall is even more hysterical.
