Emily Owens, M.D. Canceled; ABC Orders More Last Man Standing and Malibu Country

EMILY OWENS, M.D.Kharen Hill/The CW

Apparently another medical drama is not what the doctor ordered.

The CW has canceled their freshman series Emily Owens, M.D., which stars Meryl Streep's daughter Mamie Gummer as a nerdy surgeon navigating life at a hospital.

Alas, it wasn't all bad news in the TV world today: ABC officially picked up additional episodes of Tim Allen's Last Man Standing and Reba McEntire's Malibu Country.

Though it's officially been canned, all of Emily Owens, M.D. 13 episodes will be aired. The most recent episode of the series only brought in 1 million viewers and a paltry 0.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. The CW gave full-season orders to its other two fall newbies, Arrow and Beauty and the Beast.

The Friday night comedy line-up of Last Man Standing, which is in its second season, and Malibu Country has done extremely well for ABC, who ordered five more episodes of each series, giving them their "back nine." (Since Last Man Standing and Malibu Country premiered late, only five episodes were necessary to complete their respective seasons.)

Recently, ABC renewed freshman series Nashville and The Neighbors, and gave sophomore political soap Scandal a full season order.

 Can't say I'm surprised about Emily Owens, M.D. show being cancled. It seemed like a dud before it was even debuted.

Last Man Standing is ok but I like Malibu Country. Never saw the Emily show.

 I've seen previews while watching other CW shows. It seems...flat, boring. The main character has inner monologue almost constantly which I would think would be annoying after a while.

I watched only one episode, and her inner monologue was very annoying!

Nooooo! I love Emily Owens! Ugh, why does The CW always cancel the only shows I watch on their channel? First Ringer and now this one. They really don't want me to watch their channel I guess.
