GrandfatheredÂ andÂ The GrinderÂ looked like they would both be successful on FOX when they premiered last September. The firstÂ had veteran sitcom star John Stamos while the latter had two great actors with Rob Lowe and Ben Savage in the cast. Both were loved by the critics as well. However, not even these stars could save these comedies as FOX announced earlier today that bothÂ GrandfatheredÂ andÂ The GrinderÂ would end at the conclusion of their first and only seasons.
Despite delivering low to moderate ratings from the beginning, bothÂ GrandfatheredÂ andÂ The GrinderÂ were given a full season pick-up. FOX decided to create a comedy block that includedÂ New GirlÂ andÂ Brooklyn None-NineÂ in order to give both series an uptick in viewers. Sadly, the viewers never came.
GrandfatheredÂ aired its final episode on Tuesday May 10th. The series also starred Paget Brewster, Josh Peck, and Christina Milian. A total of 22 episodes aired.Â The GrinderÂ took a month long hiatus before airing its final two episodes onÂ May 3rd and 1oth. The comedy also starred Mary Elizabeth Ellis and William Devane and featured 22 episodes.
FOX also announced today that it would be cancelling other freshmen seriesÂ BordertownÂ andÂ Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.Â BordertownÂ will air its final episode on May 22nd whileÂ Cooper BarrettÂ has three episodes that were filmed, but have yet to air.
