In some Great News bad news, NBC has thrown the show to the trash heap of network sitcoms canceled this week. This afternoon, the network canceled the Tina Fey–produced sitcom about a woman (Briga Heelan) and her mother (Andrea Martin) working at a TV news station after two seasons. Though it never took off in the ratings, the show developed a cult following for its fast-paced surreal comedy, in the tradition of previous NBC shows like 30 Rock. Yesterday, Fox canceled three of its own critically well-received series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick, and Last Man on Earth, making this feel like a very grim time for a certain kind of network comedy sensibility.
