TBS Cancels 'Wedding Band' After One Season (Exclusive)
Prep the sad song: TBS has canceled The Wedding Band.
Brian Austin Green and Harold Perrineau starred in the musical comedy about four likable guys who spend their free time performing in a wedding band. It was ordered to series May 2011, finally arriving on the cable network's schedule in November in the less-than-ideal 10 p.m. Saturday slot.
Despite a roster of notable guest stars including Green's wife Megan Fox, Wedding Band failed to register -- attracting 1.85 million total viewers and 1.1 million in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, with a mere 613,000 in 18-34 for its November bow.
The 10-episode series ended its run Saturday, averaging 850,000 total viewers in the 18-49 demo with 1.4 million total viewers heading into what marked its series finale.
Wedding Band came as TBS continued to ramp up its original scripted comedy offerings behind off-net repeats of The Big Bang Theory, the No. 1 show in syndication. The network still has originals Sullivan and Son, Men at Work and Cougar Town -- which it picked up from ABC last year -- among other scripted fare.
Wedding Band hailed from FremantleMedia North America and Mike Tollin Productions.
