On Wednesday, one day after the show once again tied its season-low 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic, The CW confirmed that they have given up on the future of “Emily Owens M.D.” as a series, but also said that the show would at least finish airing out the rest of its initial 13-episode order. This decision obviously is not that much of a surprise, especially when you remember that it was only a matter of a few months ago that there were rumors that the show was already on the way out of the network’s schedule.
The sad news for The CW is that it once again proves here that this Tuesdays-at-9:00 p.m. timeslot is almost impossible for them to find a successful show for. “Ringer” was canceled after one season last year in this spot, and it is possible now, especially given the opening, that they could opt to bring in “Cult” as the replacement following “Hart of Dixie.” However, we would personally prefer that show (which features Matt Davis) to air following new episodes of his former show “The Vampire Diaries, mostly so that we could instead see “Beauty and the Beat” shifted to this spot. After all, it as a show is simply not pulling in the same sort of ratings you would expect following such an impressive lead-in.
What do you think about Emily Owens’ run coming to an end, or is there a major part of you that saw this coming? If you want to see some more examples of the show’s struggling ratings, be sure to head on over to the link here.
