NBC’s latest cancellation this season is one many have seen coming for a long time now.
Announced this morning, the network has officially canceled “I Feel Bad” after just one season. It is now NBC’s second scripted cancellation of the season, after “Midnight, Texas” got the axe late last year.
The cancellation of the short-lived comedy doesn’t come as much of a surprise. After it was welcomed with consistently low ratings in its first season, it failed to secure a full-season or additional episode order, and wrapped up its 13-episode first season last December.
Created by Aseem Batra, “I Feel Bad” followed the daily life of Emet, a mom, boss, wife, friend, and daughter, learning to be okay with her own mistakes and imperfections. Its cast included Sarayu Blue, Paul Adelstein, Madhur Jaffrey, James Buckley, Zach Cherry, Brian George, Johnny Pemberton, and more.
Throughout its first season, “I Feel Bad” failed to make much of a mark in the ratings, averaging only a low 0.56 live + same day rating among adults 18-49, making it one of NBC’s lowest-rated titles of the season.
With this cancellation, NBC only has a few more shows to make a decision on this season, as “Abby’s,” “A.P. Bio,” “Blindspot,” “The Village,” “The Enemy Within,” and “This is Us” all remain in limbo for the time being.
