Code Blue: Emily Owens, M.D. Cancelled By CW

Get More: Cancellations

Emily Owens. MD CancelledThe doctors are out… of a job.

The CW has euthanized its little-seen, critically panned medical soap Emily Owens, M.D., TVLine has confirmed.

The Mamie Gummer-fronted drama debuted to just 1.7 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating last month — well below time slot predecessor Ringer‘s launch numbers, yet admittedly facing stiff competition in the second presidential debate and the American League Championship Series. In its most recent outing this week, Emily attracted 1 million viewers and a 0.3 in 18-49.

A CW insider says the network will air all 13 episodes from its initial order; Episode 6 aired this past Tuesday.

  • They will never be able to launch something in that hour, it seems.

    • I 100% agree. I don’t know how The CW thought the show would attract an audience against the NCIS older audience -the propped up competition from the other networks reality results shows. Emily Owens never stood a chance. It’s really too bad because I really enjoyed this show. So tired of watching the scraps toward us from the Nielsen families. Why is cheap reality, juvenile comedies and boring procedurals all they watch?

      • I really enjoyed the show too. NCIS is getting tired.

        • So disappointed this show is gone. Emily Owens was easy to bond to and i couldn’t wait to see which guy she would choose. Really bad decision to get rid of this show. Maybe i need to stop the pvr and stop getting hooked on shows that get cancelled. Very Sad Emily fan.

      • I’m 60 years old and I looked forward to watching Emily Owens MD every week. I hated for the show to be over every week. I am so tired of all the NCIS, CIS, police, detective, lawyers, reality shows, shows where kids and adults are mouthing off to each other, etc. It was refreshing to have something nice, light and fun to watch. There are a dozen plus shows to take off the air. Bring Emily Owens MD back

        Robin Mead on the Morning express news asking her to help us get Emily Owens MD back on the air .

        If enough of us who would like it back , write in
        The higher ups might listen :-)

      • I do not feel that Emily Owens was given a fair chance, in its time slot, against so many election specials, etc….. It was a refreshing new drama. Bring it back & give it a real shot! Mamie Gunther is very talented!!!!!!!!

    • If nothing should be launched in that hour then obviously the show would have done better in another time slot. Ya just gotta wonder if it could have made it. My wife and I watched every episode and liked the series very much. It was just getting interesting when I heard it was cancelled.

          • Agree to Ann’s comment. Great show. I always looked forward to Tuesday’s night. I, too, am sick of the “celebrity news 24/7″, reality shows, vampires, and serial killer shows. Maybe another network would be interested in picking it up.

            Comment by Linda – February 20, 2013 04:02 PM PDT  
    • Is there anything that we can do to try to get this show back? Any higher-ups that we could write to? Any ideas or suggestions?

      • THERE IS A WAY YOU CAN SAVE THE SHOW! Sign the petition to save it at: Ipetitions.com! Then go to the SAVE EOMD FACEBOOK AND GET THE CW’s NUMBER! Call and leave a message on an opinion line! Then get tongue depressors and write “Save EOMD” on them! People on FB and twitter are doing it! And mailing them into the CW!

          • She was very good in the “John Adams” HBO miniseries and “The Good Wife.” You are right when you say she just needs the right material.

            Comment by Gwen – November 29, 2012 04:22 AM PDT  
          • I agree. I like Mamie Gummer a lot and I think Emily Owens could have worked – it was a cute show, but needed to find its voice. I’m sorry the show has been cancelled because I liked the cast and thought it had potential. I also loved her on The Good Wife and hope she returns.

            Comment by Laura – November 29, 2012 07:12 AM PDT  
          • Yeah, the actors worked wonderfully, but the scripts and concept wasn’t good enough. Please spin Gummer and Rady into their own show – they’re incrediblly charming actors that need better material.

    • He doesnt look anything like Hal Jordan. LOL why is everyone trying to get their little favorite actors to be shoe horned in Arrow.

      Comment by Triss – November 28, 2012 05:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I just want Jordan to show up on Arrow so they can do Hard Travelling Heroes. Hartley has already played two different DC characters on TV, Aquaman and Green Arrow, so he could play a third (he’s like Chris Evans in the Marvel movies, where he’s played both Johnny Storm and Captain America). Another character he could play is the Warlock Travis Morgan. There the in-joke would be that in the comics the Warlock and Green Arrow, specially when drawn by Mike Grell, look alike, so Hartley playing the Warlock and being told that he looks like Oliver would be a joke on his having played GA in Smallville (Hartley playing Morgan is something I saw Craig Byrne from Kryptonsite mention on Facebook, heh).

      • Michael Keaton didn’t look anything like Bruce Wayne or Batman, and yet he played the role well in two movies.

    Comment by João Amaral – November 28, 2012 05:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Agreed. The first two episodes were dreadful, but the series was actually enjoyable, reminding me of an early Grey’s Anatomy. I actually enjoy EOMD more than Dixie lately.

      • I liked Emily Owens but if I had to pick between Emily and HOD I’d want HOD to live. I’m not optimistic about HOD making it past this season either though.

        Comment by Ari – November 28, 2012 05:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • If both shows started at the same time, would you still pick HOD over EO? Personally I couldn’t stand HOD’s first episodes, whereas I liked EO from the get-go (although the premiere was somewhat bland).

          Comment by kavyn – November 28, 2012 06:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I like Dixie better too,though I do like EO too.I think Dixie will be renewed:GG ends,EO cancelled and I strongly believe Beauty will be cancelled in May just cause it lost more than half of its pilot audience by episode three but Dixie is still steady at 0.5-0.6

          Comment by Brandy – November 28, 2012 06:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Same! Loved HOD’s first season but haven’t been enjoying it this season. If I were to choose which of the two were to be cancelled I’d choose HOD. Emily Owens MD has gotten so good. SO bummed out about this cancellation. This is unlikely, but I hope it gets picked up by another network. :(

    • So was I. It was like Grey’s Anatomy back when the characters on GA were likeable. And I love Mamie Gummer. The show had potential–just a really lame time slot and a network that can’t afford to nurture struggling shows.

        That’s why I was so disappointed in Emily Owens. Because you know she’s capable of so much more.

  • I liked the cast and the dynamic, but I just think that there are already way too many medical dramas on TV. This one lacked the medical accuracy of shows like ER, and lacked the wit of shows like Grey’s Anatomy. Also, characters like Cassandra and Dr. B were just too unlikeable. I wish they had done the show with another setting, like teachers at a school or something.

    • Most critics panned this show because not only did Emily talk to another character vocally, you heard her thoughts. One critic said it was the most poorly written pilot he has ever seen. They also panned Mob Doctor, which also is running its final 13 episode on Saturdays.

  • I loved the show…and still love the show…I will watch all 13 episodes. This failure simply falls on viewers. You say you want more Justin Hartley, yet when he’s given to you, you don’t tune in enough. This was a very good medical relationship drama, and it stinks that this action had to be taken. Viewers…a word to the wise: networks don’t have the luxury of patience like they used to when there were 3 networks and 20 shares. If you like a show and want to keep it on the air, you’d better start WATCHING LIVE.

    • watching live doesn’t make a damn bit of difference if you don’t have a nielson ratings box… so no. most of us watching live makes NO impact at all. oh and the show is awful thats why no one watches it.

  • It started out rough (I barely got through the pilot), but it was finally coming into its own as Emily started to get over her internal problems with Cassandra and the characters built up.

    The problem with the CW? They threw this into a timeslot where I already watch “Happy Endings”, “Apt. 23″, “New Girl”, “Mindy”, and “Rizzoli & Isles”, along with “NCIS LA” and “Go On”. It was truly the most boneheaded timeslot decision they could make. I had to by default watch it via Hulu+ the next day instead of over the air, which I’m sure they prefer.

    Truly the CW scheduling wunderkinds screwed this show from the beginning.

    • So true! This show never had a chance at that time. And now that Rizzoli and Isles is back on, this won’t even get DVR’d. I will catch it on Hulu later…

  • Yeah, because the CW looked at your personal preferences and deliberately slotted Emily Owens against several other programs you like just to screw you over and ruin the show’s chances of success. You are THAT important. Mmhmm.

  • I enjoyed it, Mamie Gummer is amazing…..but I’m alright with this. Just means that Beauty and the Beast might get renewed. I love BnB muchmuch more.

    • I like EOMD much better than BnB, even though I had high hopes for the latter and I love Kristin Kreuk. I just couldn’t get past episode 3 of BnB. On the other hand, while EOMD’s first few episodes made some missteps, I felt it was slowly but surely getting its groove. Tsk, tsk. CW sucks!

  • Justin Hartley will get picked up by another CW pilot..hopefully for next season. He definitely has an audience over there.

  • I hope the 13 eps will be released on dvd. That would be fun to have, not only to watch but because I think she is really going places. One of my fave 13 ep series dvd sets is Wonderfalls (although I think that may be more than just 13 eps, not much more though). Hey….wait a minute, wasn’t Caroline Dhavernas on Off the Map with Mamie? Oh dear. These talented actresses really need vehicles which will take off (ie. marketed correctly and backed by the networks, proper timeslots and given every chance to succeed).

  • it’s not even been given a fair shot to find itself an audience and after 6 eps has been unfairly pulled. what a shame. Dissapointed to know it didn’t get a better demographic but what did the CW expect when they put it in a slot where there was tough competition. Although i’m sad for its ending i will be pleased to see marmie gummer return to The Good Wife, and i hope it wont be too long a wait until i see michael rady back on tv again.

  • That’s too bad. It’s not a great show but I Dvr it and its ok. I like Mamie. But just watched the latest epi and I thought, wow, they are not even hiding how much they are copying Greys Anatomy. They had two cases that were on GA a couple of seasons ago. It’s like the CW wanted to do Greys for high schoolers. The parallels are there. Didn’t work…

  • This show gets higher ratings than 90210 and they cancel it? why aren’t they giving it a chance? I don’t even watch it but it just doesn’t make any sense to me? this network needs to give a show a chance seriously

    Comment by S – November 28, 2012 07:23 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I know, right? Higher quality shows garnering higher ratings than 90210 get cancelled left and right and yet that drivel just keeps on getting? How is that possible? I admit I have watched some of it lately after I took a hiatus just for its sheer cheesiness (and because himym is so disappointing now – SNL really needs to spoof those B & R “deeply profound meaningful moment at the end of every episode” things) and when DWTS takes those looong commercial breaks. But seriously, one might have to wonder who is bl*wing more than just smoke over there….

    • Emily Owens did NOT have higher ratings than 90210. Its season average rating in adults 18-49 was lower than every show on The CW except for Nikita. Facts are fun. You should look into them sometime!

    • Me too!! This was my favorite show. I have been wanting Emily and Micah to get together all season. I was so excited when he finally kissed her. But after tonights show with her and Will getting together at the end, I was so disappointed. I really don’t care that it got cancelled now.

  • How ironic; I was just recommending this show to someone at dinner tonight. Still, not surprised in the least though I will miss Mamie Gummer, Michael Rady and sex-on-a-stick Justin Hartley on my screens every week; all three are fantastic performers who, hopefully, will rebound very soon.

    • GO TO CHANGE.ORG! And sign the Emily Owens petition to save the show! Then go to ipetitions.com and sign the “Resusitate Emily Owens” petition. I wil help! We have a month to save the show!

      I heard we should also start contacting networks. And asking them to pick up the show.

        • Ratings in the adults 18-49 demo (that’s the one that pays the bills) for Tuesday, November 20:

          Hart of Dixie 0.5
          Emily Owens 0.4

  • I’m not even sure why I watched the first episode because the promos for it were horrible, but I ended up loving Emily and her inner dialogues. Too bad the CW couldn’t give it at least an entire season.

    Comment by Bre – November 28, 2012 08:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • This. I never gave the show a chance because of the awful advertising campaign. It made the show look like something I would never want to watch. It sounds like a lot of people enjoyed it, but I bet there were a lot of people like me who never gave it a shot because it just looked so painful…

      Comment by Jellymoff – November 28, 2012 08:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree! The promos were awful. They posted the pilot on Youtube and I wasn’t planning at all to watch it – just randomly clicked it and found myself enjoying it a lot. 6 episodes later, I’m in love. Sigh, the CW. Sigh.

  • Mamie Gummer is not headlining material unlike her mother Meryl. That being said how many times can you embarrasses the star Emily. Plus the show just wasn’t any good.

    Comment by Tru – November 28, 2012 08:44 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She is headlining material. If people would stop comparing her to her mother and judge her on her own merits you may notice she’s one hell of an actress. EO was a very good show, it just needed time for the characters and story lines to develop. TV exec need to get their heads out of their butts and give shows time and a chance before taking them off the air. And for God sake will you people stop listening to critics! They are no one!! They have no better views or opinions of anything on TV than any of us! If they did, DO YOU really think there would be SO much REALITY TV on???? Just keep in mind some critic gave Honey Boo Boo 2 thumbs up…..
