Atlanta-based TBS cancels ‘Glory Daze’ after one season

"Glory Daze" focused on four guys navigating college life in the mid-1980s.

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.

Sorry to say it but glory daze should have had some main star diversity because I had absolutely no interest in watching it. I watch How I met your mother and a whole lot or others show that depict no one looking like me(black) and try to not have every show I watch fit that box. Yes tbs has a couple of “black shows” which I don’t watch but since we are so diverse(not) why don’t we have more main star diversity. Yes a principal, teacher etc or some other show character will usually be on the show sometime buy I don’t see alot of main star diversity.

I watched a part of one show. They basically trashjed republicans/conservatives in the show I saw. If you’re going to cater to the left side I geuss you better be remotely entertaining and this show could not even do that.

gone for good
