The Wonder Years Canceled by ABC

Some not-so-wonderful news for the only live-action scripted show on the Big Four this summer: ABC has canceled its 1960s-set sitcom The Wonder Years after two seasons. Odds for a third season pickup seemed slim for the show ever since they left it off their midseason schedule, and it became obvious just how little they cared about it when they decided it to burn it off in the summer rather than holding it to air in the fall, even amid a writers' strike that completely shut down production of scripted programming. The ratings for the first season made it a questionable renewal to start with, and a 54% drop to a 0.21 average in season two did nothing to convince them to pick it up. A reboot of the 1980s series of the same name, The Wonder Years was narrated by Don Cheadle and starred EJ Williams, Dulé Hill, Saycon Sengbloh, Laura Kariuki and Milan Ray. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.
