'The Mayor' canceled at ABC as a bad timeslot claims another victim

Tony Rivetti  ABC

The only good news is that The Mayor could be shopped around and picked up by another network or streaming service, so there could be a comeback in the future... maybe.

Reruns of "Modern Family" will fill "The Mayor"'s Tuesday, 9:30 p.m. time slot. ABC has no plans to air the remaining four episodes of season one, despite ordering three additional backup scripts in December.

The Mayor starred Brandon Micheal Hall as an aspiring rapper who becomes mayor of his California hometown after running to gain some publicity. Hulu, a joint venture with Disney, has stacking rights to the series.

Hamilton star and Clipping vocalist Daveed Diggs executive produced The Mayor.

Bronson recently scored a series order at Netflix for a family comedy starring Rev. Run (of Run DMC fame) that is being produced by ABC Studios and Amblin. The overall live viewership continued to slide from there, with one November episode only acquiring 2.45 million total viewers.

The Mayor was ABC's lone comedy to launch in the fall. Delayed viewing on the single-camera comedy co-starring Lea Michele (Glee) remains soft.

According to the publication, The Mayor was pulled from ABC "until further notice", and it's a sad day if you are a fan of the political, musical and comical show. ABC has pulled the fledgling series from its schedule. Check out our list of midseason premieres to find a new show or lament about what else has been axed with our cancellation guide.
