Proof Cancelled TNT

TNT Cancels Proof After One Season

“Is there life after death?” is a question TNT’s Proof may itself now be wondering.

The freshman drama, which starred Jennifer Beals as a surgeon enlisted by Matthew Modine’s eccentric billionaire to investigate — nay, find proof of — the existence of an afterlife, has been cancelled after one 10-episode season.

TVLine’s hand-crafted Cable Renewal Scorecard has thusly been updated.

Proof debuted in June to 2.7 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating, and come finale time was pulling 2.1 mil/0.3. But even with DVR playback bumps, the numbers simply skewed too old.

Among TNT’s other drama offerings, The Last Ship was recently commissioned for Season 3, Falling Skies wrapped its run this summer, Murder in the First awaits news on Season 3, Rizzoli has been renewed for a shortened season and both Perception and Franklin & Bash got the hook last November. Legends and The Librarians have their Season 2 premieres coming up, while Major Crimes resumes Season 4 on Nov. 2.
