The network will not be ordering additional episodes of the freshman comedy, which is a nice way of saying the show has been cancelled.
Low ratings were the culprit. This week’s Selfie double-pump drew an average 3.5 million viewers and an 0.9 demo rating.
Last month, ABC pulled the plug on Selfie‘s Tuesday companion, fellow rookie rom-com Manhattan Love Story.
Thoughts? Does this news warrant a standard #fail or an amplified #epicfail? Hit the comments!
The double dose always portends the worst.
thank god, what trash…
If you don’t like it, don’t watch it! It’s not like there aren’t hundreds of other tv shows you could watch.
Well, yeah, that’s why this trash got cancelled.
All you’ve come on here and done is say that this show is trash and people are idiots. YOU sir are the trash here.
And apparently not many liked it and took your advice. I’m just glad I won’t be seeing their faces on billboards advertising this garbage anymore!
Does B stand for little Bitch like you?
You obviously haven’t been watching the show or all of you wouldn’t be calling it trash. It is a good show with a good message. It shows that being internet famous and having a lot of “friends” or followers means nothing if you are a crappy person in real life. In the last episode it made a very important statement using the song Chandelier showing that “party girls” are usually not happy with that life and are putting on an act to bury and hide their actual emotions and sadness while they realize all of the people who surround them and are their friends really only want one thing from them: entertainment. In this age of our society it was a very needed and important message and a clever way of getting it out there to the people who needed to hear it.
I loved the show too and the message!! Really want it back..
I support you I also loved the show. . . Why ppl didn’t like it , I don’t understand very sad to hear that it has been canceled :-(
Thats A Perfect Saying Right There!!
there you go!!! finally someone who understands
I couldn’t even make it through the pilot. I hadn’t been paying attention to the ratings though.
Even people who ended up loving the show (ie. me) didn’t like the pilot but the episodes after were a breath of fresh air, sucks people couldn’t get past the pilot, the rest really had potential ):
Absolutely! Couldn’t agree more!
Totally agree. The pilot seemed like it’d been chopped from an hour down to 20 minutes – it was a mess. I’ve loved it since then though.
If you look at the ratings there’s a drop of 1.6 million viewers between episode 1 (the pilot) and episode 2, but after that it remains fairly stable, although ratings are only given for episodes 1-7. ABC didn’t give the show a chance to recover.
Also, 3 million viewers should be enough to generate profits. It’s sad that shows keep getting cancelled just because they only provide a keg of cash instead of a barrel.
was you watching the show for real??? there was no trash and that is probably what you are truly mad about.
You said it Shellie!
It wasn’t trash at all, on the contrary.
Yeah, yeah, it’s a trash… For old people!
No! :( I was actually enjoying this…to my surprise.
Me too… loved the 1 st season , I was looking forward for season 2 . this is sad…. :-(
The pilot wasn’t great, and the title was a turn off. I was going to catch up on it later. That time slot is just brutal. NCIS, Flash, NBC’s reality trash, Fox’s reality trash. ABC should abandon this slot until NCIS gets too expensive to continue.
The fact that it had to lead out the night on its own made me predict cancellation before it even debuted. Now Tuesday has nothing on to watch for me, such an empty night. Compare that to Mondays which has 6 shows I like.
Yup, I was enjoying Selfie too. The pilot wasn’t great but I love John Cho so I’ve been tuning in each week. It’s gotten quite charming. I’ll miss it. :(
I FRICKIN LOVE THE SHOW TOOO!!!! Damn you ABC (-_-)
we need to band together and bring it back
Agreed, the show shouldn’t be cancelled, the characters were involving and they had great chemistry.
YOU TAKE THAT BACK
I’m bummed. I liked this show.
This freaking sucks.
First Apt 23, then Happy Endings, now Selfie. Really hard to have any faith in ABC.
Dont forget Trophy Wife which was probably one of the most underrated comedies ever
Trophy Wife was awesome. Boo ABC.
Right, I miss Trophy Wife too.
Exactly. I try hard not to get too invested in any ABC show, because they don’t give anything a chance. And it’s sad because they make great shows, they just don’t stick with them.
They’re giving Forever a chance with a full season pick up, despite its ratings proclaiming otherwise. ABC also kept Happy Endings on the air for 2.5 seasons despite having low ratings, and agreed they do make some great, even quirky shows (Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, etc.) that while they didn’t last long, they still gave them a decent try.
Pushing Daisies was doing well until the strike happened. That killed the ratings momentum. I think it would’ve been a big hit if they could’ve kept it going. The stop-start is what did it.
NBC is exactly the same way, if not worse! And they don’t always cancel a show because of ratings. They cancel a show with awesome ratings just because the demographic they want is not watching it! Horrible!
Really? It seems to me they’re just good at canceling crappy shows.
Selfie was nice. Usually I hate shows that are built on characters being stupid, but somehow I liked this one.
Common, happy endings is not in the same league as that trash, shoulda never been cancelled
That’s unfortunate. I was glad to have John Cho and Karen Gillan on my tv for a little while.
Man, this show came a long way from the pilot and was so CUTE in the past few episodes. Gah, Cho and Gillan made me want to see this one go the distance.
I feel you.
I am shock that Selfie got the axes. I can’t wait to see what will replace the show in the 8 pm-9 pm timeslot.
How are you shocked, I see you comment on the ratings releases on here, surely you would have seen how poor the ratings were?
Probably bringing back Dancing With The Stars Results show.
Sulu and Amy Pond? How could they go wrong? Loved them in this. The rest of the show… Not so much 😢
So will they get to complete their current order, like A to Z? Or is it done done?
I really love this show, and it’s both a shame that more people didn’t tune in and that we continue to use the outdated Nielsen ratings system. Can you tell us if they’ll air the remaining episodes / if there are any episode left to film? I genuinely hope Emily Kapnek has the opportunity to make the thirteenth episode act as a finale – and that we have the opportunity to SEE it.
When will ABC Stop putting new shows up against NCIS? That together with the stupid name SELFIE – doomed it – too bad seemed like a fun series the one time I watched it
Probably when NCIS stops airing. How many NCIS shows are there now–three?
Noooooooooooooo. As usual, then they order extra episodes of shows that actually suck. I need a nielson box.
Very sad news. Improved quickly. DAMN U ABC!!
I wasn’t sure I would like it but it turned out to be a good show. I will miss it
too bad. I was really enjoying this show.
About time ABC canceled a horrible sitcom no one cares about. Hope John Cho is in the running to be cast in the TV version of Rush Hour on CBS.
It was hardly horrible. And obviously, the people commenting here, and the people watching it, care about the show. Generalize much?
It was a light-hearted romantic comedy about people helping each other improve themselves, with valuable lessons delivered in a fun way. I thought it would be trash and ended up liking it and finding it to be an okay show. 3 million viewers should be more than enough to sustain a show, but everyone apparently is just looking to maximize profits without caring about the product or customers, so a show gets cut not for not being profitable, but for not being profitable enough. Same goes for some truly great shows that got cut.
I was really enjoying Selfie. What a bummer.
Darn. I’ve really been enjoying it. The rest of the episodes will air though, right?
I love both Cho and Gillan and was really looking forward to this, however, I never made it through the pilot. I started it three times and couldn’t get into it. I hope both actors will get another chance at a show, however, because they themselves are really enjoyable.
Please don’t!! It was a good show :(
It wasn’t the best, but they were trying! And what’s the point in watching TV at all when even the not-bad shows are getting canceled after only a few episodes??? Seriously, WHAT IS THE POINT??
Ha seriously. That’s why I haven’t bothered to watch it yet –I wanted to wait and see what would happen with the network. I may still tune in as it sounds like they’ll be able to give it a proper ending.
Look in the dictionary under ABC -patience…NO. You won’t find it.
Cute show…not much support from ABC.
Sorry to see it go.
This is definitely true. A ton of people I talked to about it had no idea it even existed, despite being fans of one or both of the actors.
Then they’re idiots, because this trash was promoted on every media platform used by anyone under the age of 65.
I wouldn’t necessarily call them idiots (I’m trying to be nice), but yeah. No one can say ABC didn’t promote the show because it was one of the few new ones that did get constant commercials and everything.
Why are you so angry, Mark? Filling all the comments with your anger? :( Did Karen Gillan or John Cho insult you? Poor thing.
