If you’re hooked on Manhattan Love Story, then I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news. The half hour romantic comedy has the dubious distinction of being the first new fall series to be cancelled. The ABC show starring Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman premiered to 4.7 million viewers and then sank to just 2.7 million by its fourth episode.
The show’s rom-com twist was to allow the audience to listen in on the main characters’ inner dialogues. That wasn’t enough to keep viewers tuning in, and ABC’s decided to yank the show and will air back to back episodes of Selfie in its place on Tuesday nights. That new comedy is holding up fairly well in the ratings, averaging about 4.1 million viewers.
Both Tipton and McDorman took to Twitter to thank their fans after news of the show’s cancellation hit the internet:
“You guys are truly incredible. Thank you outpouring of love. Broken hearts all around.” – @OhAnaleigh
“You guys are amazing. Thank you for everything #ManhattanLoveStory” – @JakeMcDorman
