LOS ANGELES — NBC has stopped production on “Sean Saves the World,” effectively canceling the freshman sitcom starring out actor Sean Hayes as a divorced gay father juggling a career, a 14-year-old daughter and an overbearing mother.

“Sean,” whose first-season order was extended to 18 episodes late last fall, has aired 12 of its 14 completed episodes, reports Variety. NBC will air a “Saturday Night Live” clip show in its time slot this week, and the Winter Olympics will pre-empt the night the following three weeks.

The series has struggled in the ratings since its premiere last fall. In its most recent airing, last Thursday, “Sean Saves the World” drew only 2.58 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen.

On Tuesday evening, Hayes tweeted: “Thanks to @SeanSavesWorld actors & crew & @NBC for a wonderful opportunity. Looking forward to Obama’s minimum wage increase to $10/hr.”

  5. I’ve heard it was boring, which is a shame. It was up against Glee and Robin Williams, which meant it never stood a chance on my TV.

  12. christ mate, he has a hard disease. i loved his character so much, such a good actor; I do think MJF is straight, and I know for sure he has a hard permanent sickness. I mean... respect? Is it so hard to say "this guy is having the worst time ever, help him out"? We used to have the Very worst time, and it is Better sure it is not perfect but straights have shitty lives often too so be a fucking human and show us more empathy i expect you to be good despite the shit situations you survive ps. Go Survive!!!

  14. Eric, are you for real? Barrie clearly doesn't like the show and he has every right to express that! You don't even know if it has anything to do with MJF's illness. Basically he said it wasn't good. You should show some respect for the "liberty of speech"!

  15. I started watching both shows last fall and after 3 episodes of the MJF show, I just stopped. It wasn't that funny. Sean Saves The World has only gotten better with time.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 7:40pm
  54. TV Stations need to sit down with the writers of the show and the stars and see what improvements can be made before just zapping a show. They never use their brains or commonsense. Oh lets cancel.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 7:40pm

  86. No! This is so sad as this show was hilarious. I do think its plot development was a bit weak though, so while it was enjoyable to watch as I was watching it, it didn’t have the “OMG, I must drop everything to find out what happens next!” that other shows may have.

  134. Five minutes into the Pilot and I think it’s hilarious. Sorry, folks, I think NBC is, bottom line, homophobic. More to the point, people may be coming around on equal rights, but there’s still a strong, underlying current, in society as a whole, that screams homophobia. I begin to wonder if people are still holding that crap about “not wanting that lifestyle” shoved down their throats. Points to ponder, lemme tell you. For the record, I hate it when my homosexuality is referred to as a “lifestyle”.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:25pm
  137. NBC is back to its olden days of bad TV sitcoms. They also may be deliberately tossing out gay comedies to see which one works. They also had/canceled The New Normal.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:25pm
  138. That show was awful. His role as Jack in Will and Grace will ALWAYS be a classic. But this new show…it’s like he assumed that just because everyone loved him as Jack, meant everyone would also love him in yet another gay role.

  139. dammit, i love that show

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:32pm
  143. I love, love, love him and his humor. I was having a hard time watching, but kept going because I knew it would get funnier and better every week. I will miss seeing him. He makes me laugh like crazy. I have to admit I was waiting for Jack to show up. I will miss him on television.

  144. It wasn’t very good.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:32pm
  145. NBC has been trying to get the “gay dad” formula right with last year’s “The New Normal” and now “Sean Saves the World.” Maybe it’s to try and compete with “Modern Family” – who knows? They pull the trigger on the shows way too soon, though, without giving them a chance to catch on.

  155. God forbid that NBC should have an original idea. Instead, they’d rather just remake Dracula, Grimm, Hannibal, etc. They’re idiots for cancelling this!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:39pm
  156. So super bummed that they canceled this show. I watched it and really loved it. Wish that they would have given it more of a chance.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:41pm
  157. I really enjoyed the show and I’m going to miss it.

  158. It’s my favorite show

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:41pm
  159. Tried to watch this show several times, just wasn’t funny!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:43pm
  160. The show wasn’t all that great in my opinion…

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:43pm
  161. I liked the show, I liked him and I thought the writing was perfect for the quirky ensemble. It was also perfect for a gay character who’s “5th most important thing about him was that he’s gay” Not heavy handed, just ‘is’. I’ll miss it…

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:44pm
  162. I love this show :( So sad they canceled it!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:46pm
  163. It wasn’t cancelled cause he is gay it was cancelled cause it wasn’t funny. Ugh I hate how people try to blame sexuality cause shoes get cancelled. Why can’t the show just b dumb like is Common law was cancelled-straight people Leverage was cancelled guess wat straight people too. Sexuality got nothing to do with whether dumb shit gets cancelled writers and ratings do.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:48pm
  164. Are you gay?

    Replied on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:50pm
  165. Yes very proud bout it but my point is this sexuality doesn't get shows cancelled

    Replied on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 12:34am
  166. i hate to say this but i kinda knew it wasnt going to last forever. it was still a funny show.

  167. i thought this show was awesome . :(

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:49pm
  168. Not surprised – just not that funny

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:50pm
  169. The should have had a straight man play the gay dad… Duh.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:51pm
  170. It was embarrassingly bad. Meanwhile, I was watching old Will and Grace epidoses, which were very funny and showcased Sean Hayes’ talents in a big way.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:52pm
  171. too bad, very funny show

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:53pm
  172. The new normal was much much better. Should NOT have been cancelled! !!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:54pm
  173. This was a fairly awfully written show

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:55pm
  174. Just when it was starting to get better. I love Sean Hayes! He is hilarious

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:56pm
  175. Why?

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:57pm
  176. They should have done more production Bc I never once heard of this show

  177. I was very sad this morning when I read that

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 8:59pm

  179. He is so fabulous and the show was so not.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:04pm
  180. It wasn’t a very good show. He was acting like Jack and it got confusing. They should have just done a spin off from Will & Grace. That would have been funny. :)

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:08pm
  181. Darn, I enjoyed this one.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:08pm

  186. The show needed better writers.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:18pm
  187. The show was terrible, I tried my hardest to watch it but I had to dump it due to the fact that it was terrible.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:25pm
  188. I LOVE THIS SHOW…The Micheal J. Fox show should go….

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:26pm

  192. Awww…grrrr!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 9:37pm
  193. NBC needs to get some writers who can actually write a decent script. Mom and Bang Theory script writers on CBS must be hard to find.

  201. This is a great show. NBC sucks. Sean is hilarious.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:06pm
  202. Gay dad, straight dad, black dad, alien dad, two dads, no dads…. I really couldn’t care less what kind of dad as long as a laugh track isn’t needed because the script is written so well that it’s funny without being told it’s funny. Hollywood doesn’t need to force anything, they just need to come up with a good script and writing team and let that good writing team have freedom to write. A good story will gain followers and overshadow the negative peeps. If good writing is left alone to be developed than a gay, straight, bi, skin color or Earth or not of this planet character will just be a character who just happens to be {insert controversial whatever here}. From reading the little bit here, it sounds like it was canceled due to the Nielsen ratings and not the character… I’ve never seen the show so I don’t know if this was good or bad writing and or acting. But I have seen enough sitcoms that I’m not interested in most. Good writing + good acting will equal a good following.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:06pm
  203. Just like most LGBT friendly show they rush to put it on the air with bad writers, bad producers, and actors they just throw in there trying to make a dollar off us. Really we are not that stupid to accept just any show with a gay person on it. You give me a some what real life gay or lesbian person that has to deal with an everyday situation and I would be happy to watch it. Not all of us want to be fabulous we just want to be us and not all of us are a bunch of screaming queens or butch construction workers. I for one am a house husband and my husband is a long haul truck driver so I guess we dont fit in Hollywood’s picture what gay people are.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:07pm
  204. That’s too bad. I was really loving this show, like The New Normal.

  214. eh

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:27pm

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:28pm
  216. S.S.T.W. is great!! So sad that they feel they need to cancel it. We enjoy (ed) watching it weekly. Very funny!! Sean Hayes is a treasure and true comedic talent!!!! We will miss it and him!!!

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:41pm
  219. This show might now have been great, but I thought Sean Hayes was as funny as ever. I will miss this show.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:45pm
  220. Good. It sucked. They should make a Blue Collar family that happens to be gay sitcom.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:47pm
  221. this show is so funny and I love the Mom she is a great gal.

  222. So disappointed in them.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 10:56pm

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 11:11pm
  231. Love Sean Hayes but the magic just wasn’t there

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 11:13pm
  232. Sean Hayes is a comic genius like Jon Cryer and Will Ferrell. The pilot of Sean Saves the World was funny, but the show’s writing weakened considerably after that. Sean Hayes deserves a better show with better writing, but he definitely should have his own sitcom. He is hilarious. :)

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 11:14pm
  233. Let’s not make this a gay issue. I saw the pilot, even gave the second episode a chance. I love Sean Hayes for all his work on “Will & Grace,” but the fact of the matter is that 1.) The show just wasn’t all that funny and 2.) For the most part, not on the whole, but for the most part the live-audience sitcom format is dead. Show formats like “The Office,” “30 Rock,” “The Mindy Project,” etc are where the future of tv comedy is heading.

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 11:19pm
  234. It could have been better . Watched one episode and didn’t grab my attention

    Posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 at 11:28pm
  235. It could have been a good show with better writing, less annoying supporting characters, and a love life for the lead character.

  242. I tried to watch it, because it was “Jack.” But, it really wasn’t funny… I’m surprised it lasted this long.

  243. TV is a disappointment anymore.

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 12:13am
  244. Hardly heard of it. And what I heard was that it wasn’t that good. But the plot doesn’t appeal to me. Guy comes out after marriage and has a child? Like that’s kinda mean for the wife.

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 12:14am
  245. O saw the pilot and was awful

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 12:35am

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 3:34am
  280. If I had known this show was one, I would have watched it. NBC should try putting up billboards and advertising their show on buses, because I am sure as fuck not going to switch to my TV tuner to watch live TV on NBC if I don’t know what is on. Sometimes I watch SNL, and I always know when it’s on, and word gets out who the host is. NBC, why didn’t you promote this show like you do SNL?

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 3:39am

    Posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 5:07am
  288. Am watching now. The show is awful. Stereotyped characters. Ridiculous dialogue. Silly story lines. I’m sure their decision to cancel was based on viewership – or lack thereof.

  310. It was the most useless half hour of TV time…ever. He was a one hit wonder & everyone knows it. Sorry Sean, go back to working behind the cameras. LOVE GRIMM.

  312. I never watched it. I don’t base my taste on issues. I base it on a good storyline.
