Ready for some more reasons that people are angry at NBC right now? Odds are, you have already heard the news regarding the fact that “Community” is no longer going to be a part of the network moving forward; now, you can add “Revolution,” “Crisis,” “Believe,” and “Growing Up Fisher” to the list.
To be fair, none of these cancellations are going to take anyone by surprise. “Revolution” is probably the one that you would not have expected a year and a half ago, mostly because this show had the ratings following “The Voice” to be a tentpole for many years to come. Unfortunately, it never managed to live up to the premise or the stunning visuals that it produced at times. (Also, it felt like the pilot was produced on a way bigger budget than any other episode. It’s better if you are not able to notice such things.)
“Revolution” struggled this year in its new timeslot, while some of the other shows just struggled in general. “Crisis” and “Believe” never had a chance thanks to their pilot numbers, and in the case of “Crisis” this marks the third straight show that Rachael Taylor has starred in, only for it to be canceled a matter of episodes into its run.
“Growing Up Fisher” at least had a chance, but NBC obviously feels like its ratings are more based on its lead-ins than anything that it is doing on its own. It is interesting now that “About a Boy” and “Parks and Recreation” are the only two comedies that the network is bringing into next season.
