AMC Cancels 'Rubicon'
Had to happen sooner or later: AMC has cancelled a drama series -- political thriller Rubicon.
Rubicon will not continue following its sleepy first season, which averaged 1.6 million viewers and an ultra-soft 439,000 adults 18-49.
The network released the following statement:
"Rubicon gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story and we're very proud of the series. This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team."
The AMC's first two dramas, Mad Men and Breaking Bad, were critical hits and have performed decently in the ratings. The network also had a limited series, The Prisoner, which only had a single run. The network's newest series, The Walking Dead, has been a smash with critics and in the Nielsens and quickly received a second season order.
Rubicon premiered on AMC on August 1, 2010 and was produced by Warner Horizon Television.
