NBC Cancels ‘About a Boy,’ ‘Marry Me,’ ‘One Big Happy’


NBC is just not in a laughing mood today.

The Peacock announced today that they’ve officially canceled About a Boy, One Big Happy, and Marry Me. It’s like they don’t want the stars or Happy Endings to be happy or something.

About a Boy, led by Minnie Driver and David Walton, was somehow the most successful of the three comedies, which isn’t really saying much. The series was in its sophomore season and just wasn’t pulling in enough viewers to keep it on the air.

Same goes for the Ken Marino, Casey Wilson comedy, which should now go by “Divorce Me” instead of Marry Me. The series, created by David Caspe (Happy Endings), was only averaging a 1.5 rating but also didn’t really get the marketing push from NBC that it deserved, despite the additional five-episode pickup it received in the fall.

One Big Happy helmed from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres and showrunner Liz Feldman, and sadly came and went with only a 1.4 rating. The LGBT-themed family comedy series starred Elisha Cuthbert, Nick Zano and Kelly Brook, and finished its six-episode run at the end of last month.
