ABC Cancels 'The Real O'Neals'

Such a bummer. ABC has decided not to renew The Real O'Neals for a third season. 

TVLine reports:

ABC has cancelled family sitcom The Real O’Neals after two seasons, TVLine has learned. Noah Galvin starred as gay teen Kenny, whose decision to come out sent shockwaves through his tight-knit Catholic family; Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope) and Jay R. Ferguson (Mad Men) co-starred as Kenny’s parents Eileen and Pat.

O’Neals had an encouraging start to Season 2, landing an order for three additional episodes in November. But by the time it wrapped up its second season in March, it ranked as ABC’s least-watched comedy, averaging just 3.1 million viewers a week. The cancellation ends its series run at a total of 29 episodes.

We're certainly going to miss having Noah Galvin, Martha Plimpton and company on our screens every week, but we're excited to see what they do next. 

For now, we'll mourn the loss of one of our favorite sitcoms. What do you think of the cancelation? Will you miss The Real O'Neals?

They were many funny and great moments on the show but it suffered from lack of places to go with future episodes. They pretty much told all the stories they could tell with the fairly shallow characters the writers developed.

Of course I would like more gay shows - but if you stop and compare this one to Blackish you can see why one show is a hit and the other's gone

Do they account for streaming or downloads, love the show, you stand behind shows that i never watch and get rid of the ones that are in tune with modern times.

TV executives would rather have their "gays" as neutered stereotypical clowns like Cam in Modern Family.
