married-canceled

FX is breaking up with “Married.”

The comedy series starring Judy Greer and Nat Faxon has been canceled after two seasons. The show was well-liked among critics, but ratings took a serious hit in Season 2, leading to the cancellation.

“Married’s” same-day adults 18-49 ratings fell by about 46 percent this season; it averaged 0.2 in the demo. FX doesn’t measure success strictly by overnight numbers, but that was too great a decline to overcome in delayed viewing and on other platforms. The finale, for example, doubled its 18-49 viewership in Live +7, but only rose to a 0.4.

The series joins these shows in being canceled in 2015-16.
