The Mayor canceled by ABC

The Mayor's cancellation marks ABC's second cancellation of the season after the network axed Ten Days in the Valley in December.

"The Mayor" also resided in what has become ABC's weakest comedy timeslot in the past couple seasons - 9:30 p.m.

Nine episodes of The Mayor have already been aired.

Variety reports that the show, starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a hip-hop artist who is elected mayor, is "effectively canceled". Hulu has stacking rights for the series, so its possible that the streaming service has a vested interest in airing more episodes.

"The Mayor" had been set to make its return from midseason hiatus January 9. Executive producers for the series are Daveed Diggs, Jeremy Bronson, Jamie Tarses, and James Griffiths. Paired with Black-ish on ABC's Tuesday night comedy line-up, The Mayor debuted in the fall to a 1.2 rating among the 18-49 demographic. The overall live viewership has continued to slide, with its November 14 installment registering a paltry 2.45 million total viewers as it airs opposite NBC's This Is Us. The network's half-hour bench includes its Roseanne revival, family comedy Splitting Up and Zach Braff vehicle Alex, Inc.

According to the publication, The Mayor was pulled from ABC "until further notice", and it's a sad day if you are a fan of the political, musical and comical show. ABC also has the dramas The Crossing, Deception, Shondaland's For the People, and the Grey's Anatomy spinoff all still left to schedule.
