The Larry Elder-hosted skein joins at least five other rookie strips unable to secure renewals. “Dr. Laura,” “HouseCalls,” “Lover or Loser,” “Curtis Court,” and “Men Are From Mars, When Are From Venus” are likewise not expected to be found on the air come fall.

“Moral’s” distribber Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution had been aggressively attempting to revive the show despite lackluster ratings perfs.

Series, produced by Stu Billet Prods., was able to earn time period upgrades in the nation’s top two markets, Gotham and Los Angeles, earlier this season.
