    hard to know why a show gets cancelled. MITM fans seemed to have given it a lukewarm reception. Maybe Justin and co will ask us to testscreen future comedies in the future?

    I'm probably one of the few people who thought that Sons of Tucson was just God-Awful. Good riddance to this stupid show.

    It's such a shame. I didn't really find the show all that funny, but the plot of each episodes were semi amusing. At least we get to see Justin in the last episode. I mean, we haven't seen him on TV for about 3 or 4 years since MITM ended.

    I think it was getting better... finding its pace. but obviously it didn't find its rhythm fast enough!

    Default Apparently, Sons of Tucson is not cancelled, but 'on hiatus'

    Last week, FOX made the decision to pull their new Sunday night sitcom, Sons of Tucson, after just four airings. Several sites have reported that the show has been cancelled but in truth, it’s on hiatus.

    (...)

    When it debuted last month, the ratings for Sons of Tucson weren’t good and pretty much got worse every week. That’s not a surprise to those behind the show since they believe it was airing in the wrong timeslot.

    A spokesman for the show said, “FOX bought Sons of Tucson in the hope of resurrecting the genre for the network and hoped to eventually build out a live action comedy block night. They looked to Justin Berfield and the [Malcolm in the Middle] creative team to do just this.”

    “They bought the show to put on at 8:30pm and despite initial audience testing results reporting against it, the network top brass decided to put Sons of Tucson on much later at 9:30pm, which draws a much different, less family audience. How does a family show do during a non-family hour? Well… not good.”

    With such disappointing ratings, it’s no surprise that the network has pulled it from the schedule. Labine has signed on to another sitcom for CBS but Sons of Tucson is in first position. If FOX decides to renew it, he’ll be obligated to return to Tucson.

    The series is scheduled to return on June 6th at 7:30pm. Unfortunately, that’s not a great timeslot either but it’s at least a little more appropriate for the show. If the series is to be renewed, it has an uphill battle — especially since most outlets are reporting that it’s already been cancelled and it won’t return from hiatus until after FOX has already announced its 2010-11 schedule.

    Berfield isn’t ready to give up the series and insists that the series just needs time to grow and even offered to donate half his producer fee to charity if the show is renewed for season two.

    Though the show hasn’t been officially cancelled, it looks like Sons of Tucson is going to need some serious charity (and ratings) to get renewed.

    Wow - talk about a last minute reprieve! Hope he and the rest can save it. i think he has to push Internet marketing to get word-of-mouth. And who knows if they are going to go back to re-edit the remaining episodes or not. Talk about a nail-biter!
