‘Curtis’ banging its last gavel

Show to continue in syndication through Sept. 6

King World Prods. told the New York-based production staff of its freshman court strip “Curtis Court” Thursday morning that the show is not coming back for a second season.

A King World spokesman confirmed that the producer-distrib was 99% sure of the show’s fate. “Curtis Court,” presided over by attorney James Curtis, will continue to air in broadcast syndication through Sept. 6.

While ratings have improved since its fall debut, the show had been considered on the bubble. “Curtis” has grown 7% since its debut the week ended Sept. 17 with a 1.5 national household rating, according to Nielsen. Its most recent rating for the week ended March 11 was a 1.6.

“Curtis” earned an average 1.7 national household rating during the February ratings sweep, according to Nielsen, placing it in sixth place among the 10 rookie syndie strips still on the air.

Studios USA Domestic TV’s “Lover or Loser” and Chris-Craft’s “HouseCalls,” which was distribbed by Buena Vista TV, have already gone off the air.
