It’s the end of the road for NBC comedy series Sean Saves The World, which today stopped production on its freshman order. The show had received a 5-episode back order for a total of 18. Fourteen episodes have been shot, 12 have aired. NBC had already scheduled an SNL Sports Spectacular special this week, preempting its Thursday lineup, and the network brass will look at the remaining two Sean segments after the Winter Olympics. Along with fellow Thursday newbie comedy, The Michael J. Fox Show, and the entire NBC Thursday comedy block, Sean Saves The World has struggled in the ratings, most recently logging a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. “We like (Mj Fox). We like Sean Hayes’ show a lot. Creatively, we think they’re good shows, and we’re really unhappy that we can’t find an audience for them in those time periods,” NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt said at TCA a week ago. »
