Mike Epps’ ABC Comedy Series “Uncle Buck” Cancelled After Just 8 Episodes

Mike Epps’ new show on ABC has already been cancelled following poor reviews and sagging rating according to Variety reports:

Comedy series “Uncle Buck” will not be renewed for a second season at ABC, Variety has confirmed.

Star James Lesure first revealed the news on Twitter Wednesday, writing, “Disappointed. No more @ABCUncleBuck. Cancelled. Thankful to have worked with @ABCNetwork. Proud of what we’ve done. Thx 4 let us entertain u.” ABC then confirmed the cancellation.

The season one finale of “Uncle Buck” aired Tuesday night. ABC had run off the eight-episode season over the course of four weeks, airing two episodes a night on Tuesdays at 9 and 9:30 p.m. Just an hour before word came of the cancellation, ABC issued a press release touting ratings for the series, which averaged 3.8 million total viewers in Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers, an 81% lift from ABC’s performance in the same time period over the course of the same four weeks a year ago. “Uncle Buck” also averaged a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo, more than double ABC’s average from a year earlier.

Did you catch any of the 8 episodes before the show was cancelled?
