NBC Cancels Camp After One Season
By Allison Moore
Washington, D.C. (October 2, 2013) - NBC has cancelled the comedy/drama summer series, Camp, after just one season, Variety reports.
The show, which starred Rachel Griffiths, focused on a summer camp for adults and their kids. While the show's debut garnered five million viewers, future episodes fell to three million or lower.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Camp was produced in the vein of Meatballs and Dazed and Confused, two offbeat box office hits from 1979 and 1993 respectively. But the show's theme and style apparently didn't translate well in the new century.
Variety reports that Camp's final show aired September 11 and generated 3.2 million viewers.
At NBC headquarters, it's been a busy week for the cancellation team. Last week, NBC Sports Network axed The Crossover, the sports talk show co-hosted by Michelle Beadle, formerly of ESPN. And over the weekend, the same NBC channel cancelled Under Wild Skies, a hunting show that generated controversy when its host shot a bull elephant in the face and accused his critics of being Hitler-like.
