ABC’s “The Mayor” is Cancelled

ABC chief, Channing Dungey, spoke about her network’s programming in a recent interview. She confirmed that there will be a demise of fall comedy The Mayor. She called the decision to pull the plug on the half-hour a “heartbreak,” acknowledging that it had been a top priority for ABC and that it had not skimped on its marketing spend.

“For whatever reason, it did not connect with the audience in the way we thought it would,” said Dungey, adding: “The issue didn’t seem to be one of the audience not knowing … people knew and just didn’t come.”

At one point, she suggested the title of the series may have part of the problem, noting that it came on at a time when there was a fair amount of political fatigue.

Either that or people are just sick of stupid comedy about blacks in nontraditional roles. News Flash there are plenty of black mayors. Move on!! Not funny!!
