According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lifetime has axed the comedy series 'Rita Rocks' after two seasons, presumably due to low ratings.

The show, which starred 'Mad TV' alum Nicole Sullivan as a mom who starts her own garage band, premiered fairly strong in Oct. 2008, with 1 million viewers tuning in. At the time, it was Lifetime's first original comedy series in over 10 years.Rita RocksIt looks like Rita will no longer be rocking the Lifetime airwaves.

However, ratings fell considerably in its second season; the show's Oct. 13 episode drew in just 489,000 viewers, according to the Futon Critic. It was later moved from Tuesdays to Mondays.

I just did a search for Rita Rocks to see when it was coming back on, and found out it's been cancelled. We loved the show. Someone posted comedys are a dime a dozen but they bring out the fun of everyday life. We're going to miss Rita Rocks.

I will not watch Reba anymore. The plot is stupid and degrading. Then they finally get Rita Rocks and they cancel it. Maybe it could have had that many viewers again, had they not changed it from Monday to Tuesday.. People can't keep up! I hate this is cancelled. I loved her show! I mean, what's with Reba Cancel that shit!
