‘Terriers’ Canceled :(

By 12.07.10

To the surprise of absolutely no one, FX canceled the charming but unwatched private investigator drama “Terriers” yesterday.

The move was a tough one for FX and its president John Landgraf, who has a longtime relationship with [showrunner Shawn] Ryan, who created the network’s classic genre-pushing drama¬†The Shield.

Though ratings rose for the¬†Terriers finale, the final hour only delivered 800,000 viewers — well below the bar for a original drama on the network and about half of the audience that showed up for the series premiere. [THR]

It’s always a shame when a solid show gets canceled, but at least “Terriers” got thirteen episodes to explore the characters and the seedier side of San Diego. If a show got those numbers (it averaged about 500,000 viewers) on a network, there’s no way we would have seen an entire season — it would have been canceled in the middle of the second episode. Which I’m pretty sure is what Fox did to “Lone Star.”
