‘Men of a Certain Age’ canceled

TNT drops ratings-challenged series after two seasons

“Men of a Certain Age” will no longer age: TNT has canceled the series after two seasons.

The series won over critics and earned back-to-back Emmy supporting actor nominations for Andre Braugher but struggled to find an audience, averaging approximately 600,000 viewers in the 25-54 demo for TNT.

“TNT has been proud to be a part of ‘Men of a Certain Age’ for two seasons,” a network spokesperson said. “While the show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances, the audience simply hasn’t built to the point where we can continue the series.

“This was an extremely difficult decision for us. We wish (exec producers) Ray Romano, Mike Royce and the terrific cast and crew of ‘Men of a Certain Age’ the very best and look forward to exploring new programming possibilities in the future.”

There was hope TNT might have been able to give the series a new life following a recent Peabody Award win, but the poor ratings were too daunting. Also, TNT was the producing studio, so the cabler was on the hook for the full production costs.
