After just one season, Showtime’s Cameron Crowe–produced series Roadies has been canceled. Although network CEO David Nevins voiced support for the show at the Television Critics Association press event in August, Roadies was poorly reviewed and generated only modest audience engagement. "Like a song that slips under your skin, or a lyric that keeps speaking to you, we hope the spell of 'Roadies' lingers. It was life-changing experience for all of us," Crowe wrote on his blog. The show, which was Crowe's first foray into TV as a producer, will now join Vinyl in premium cable's rock-and-roll graveyard.
