Rush is making a somewhat unexpected trip to the morgue after just one season.
USA Network announced today that it is not picking up the Tom Ellis medical drama for Season 2.
The news was better, however, for fellow freshman drama Satisfaction, which scored a renewal despite drawing very similar numbers to Rush.
Satisfaction premiered in July to 1.7 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, while Rush debuted to 1.7 mil and a 0.4. With their recent finales, Satisfaction wound up with 1.3 mil/0.4, while Rush drew 1.6 mil/0.3.
Explaining the pick-up, USA Network President Chris McCumber said in a statement. “Satisfaction sparked a cultural conversation about modern love and marriage in today’s world.” Also helping the Matt Passmore starrer was better Live+7 DVR playback lifts (+74 percent in the demo, per Deadline) than Rush delivered.
