ABC Family Cancels 'Huge'

by Jean Bentley, posted Oct 4th 2010 5:40PM
'Huge'Add another show to the casualty pile: ABC Family has decided not to renew its summer series 'Huge,' Deadline reports.

The show, which starred Nikki Blonsky and Haley Hasselhoff as two overweight teens at fat camp -- ahem, weight-loss camp -- touched on the very complex issues surrounding the topic of weight in a refreshingly honest, sensitive and candid manner. But apparently that wasn't enough -- ratings steadily declined, and the network decided to cancel the show.

The last of 'Huge''s 10 episodes aired on Aug. 30 to only 1.45 million viewers, half as many as its lead-in, 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager,' according to TV By the Numbers.

'Pretty Little Liars,' which launched on the network at the same time, is already in production on the second half of its first season, and Deadline reports that a 'Melissa & Joey' renewal is "imminent."

Did you watch the show? Are you sad to see it gone?

That makes me mad! Make a show about about pregnant teens and the viewers are all over it! But make a show that concentrates on a serious issue thats needs to be addressed and people shut thier eyes and ears. im not saying teen pregnancy should be ignored but its just that we focus more on that then the issue with teen obesity. I want Huge back not just because it was an amazing show but because it addressed issue thats usually ignored.

What happened to Friday Night Lights? Where is it showing now? It was on ABC Family Channel at 5:00 P.M. then went to 10:00 A.M. -- now today it was not shown at all as far as we could determine... Please let me know something -- "good" -- I "hope"... Thanks!

that's terrible. there is not ONE other show with such a positive and nuanced portrayal of teens. ...not that anyone at abc family would care about that.

This breaks my heart. What an amazingly well done and thoughtful show. The cast was amazing. I hope to see a lot more from Ari Stidham and Harvey Guillen.
