ABC finally clipped the wings on its remake of Charlies’s Angels on Friday. After blistering reviews, a tepid response to the show’s premiere, and a steady loss in viewership, the news doesn’t come as a surprise to most viewers.

The Hollywood Reporter’s chief television critic Tim Goodman wrote a scathing review on the series, saying, “It’s beyond heinous. It contains some of the worst acting of the last decade on network television, much of it by Minka Kelly.”

When THR checked in with the viewers after the series debuted in late September, they predominately agreed with Goodman’s appraisal of the series. Like him, they felt the acting and writing left much to be desired.

Gee, CHARLIE'S ANGELS reboot is being canceled. That's as surprising as THE PLAYBOY CLUB's cancellation. Can TERRA NOVA be next please?

As crappy as the #charliesangels remake was, I'm sad to see it cancelled. On the bright side, that's one less show I have to keep up with.
