A stiff drink might be in order for the cast and crew of "Mixology" -- the freshman comedy has been canceled by ABC.
The rookie half-hour program, from the writers behind "The Hangover," centered on a group of singles over the course of one night. The critically panned comedy's post-"Modern Family" slot had perplexed many -- including viewers, who never quite latched on to the show. It pulled in a 1.5 rating on average among adults under 50.
The adult-oriented Wednesday show marked the first live-action scripted comedy from Ryan Seacrest, who served as executive producer.
Just as with the recently dumped "Trophy Wife," news of the midseason comedy's demise came via Twitter by one of the show's stars, in this case, Frankie Shaw.
ABC would not comment on the cancellation.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
