So much for the memories. The 1980s-based comedy “Glory Daze” was nixed by Atlanta-based TBS after just one season.
TBS has had some success with half-hour comedies in recent years, but its latest attempt at an hour-long one-camera show failed to gain any traction.
Opening at 1.8 million viewers last November, it slipped to 1.1 million viewers by the fifth episode and remained in that zone. The show, which aired nine episodes, apparently did well with younger viewers (median age about 25) and DVR users, but that was not enough to merit a second season, according to deadline.com.
TBS is not giving up on one-hour shows: it has two more in production: “Hound Dogs” about the travails of a minor-league baseball team from the creator of “Bull Durham” and “The Wedding Band,” which is exactly about what the title says.
