TNT cancels "Men of a Certain Age"


The sophomore TNT dramedy starring Ray Romano has been canceled, after just earning its second Emmy nomination for co-star Andre Braugher. The series also won a Peabody Award earlier this year. Premiering 12/09, the show featured Romano (playing Joe), Braugher (Owen) and Scott Bakula (Terry) as a friends struggling with the complexities of middle age. Braugher, who played a car-dealership manager, was nominated for an Emmy for best supporting actor in a drama series last year, in addition to his nod this year.

“TNT has been proud to be a part of ‘Men of a Certain Age’ for two seasons,” a TNT spokesperson told TheWrap. “While the show has featured great storytelling and impeccable performances, the audience simply hasn’t built to the point where we can continue the series. This was an extremely difficult decision for us. We wish Ray Romano, Mike Royce and the terrific cast and crew of ‘Men of a Certain Age’ the very best and look forward to exploring new programming possibilities in the future.”
